Trump Launches Airstrikes on Syria; Russia, Iran Warn of Consequences


Israeli officials have repeatedly said they will act to prevent Iran's growing military presence in Syria and the region remains on edge after US-led air strikes targeting the Syrian regime were unleashed in the early hours of Saturday.

Putin added Russian Federation would convene an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council in response.

"An act of aggression against a sovereign state that is on the frontline in the fight against terrorism was committed without a mandate from the UN Security Council and in violation of the UN Charter and norms and principles of worldwide law", Putin said.

Berman, they added, "can prevent further disparity in Mr. Atilla's treatment" by taking into account the leniency afforded those banks and their employees, both U.S. and non-US citizens, who violated sanctions.

Hezbollah's chief terrorist, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, said the attack on the air base in Syria ushers in a new phase that puts Israel in a state of "direct confrontation" with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Russia denounced allegations of a gas attack in Douma and said it was staged by Britain to whip up anti-Russian hysteria.

The Israeli military said Friday evening that following an "operational and intelligence-based investigation", its military has concluded that the "Iranian aircraft was armed with explosives and was tasked to attack Israeli territory". People clashed with security forces in cities large and small, chanting their disapproval of the waste of their money in Lebanon and Syria, and demanding regime change.

They have said a roughly 20-year prison term for Atilla would be appropriate. "This is not about trying to turn the tide of the conflict in Syria", he told the BBC, adding that Russian Federation was the only country able to pressure Assad to negotiate an end to the conflict.

Haley said that the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished.

The T4 Air Airbase is home to Iranian forces, the Lebanese Hezbollah terror organization and Syrian regime forces.
