Missile strikes in Syria hailed

Russian president, Vladimir Putin.

In a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart today, Putin and Hassan Rouhani agreed that the Western strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution in the seven-year Syria conflict, according to a Kremlin statement.

On Saturday, the USA, U.K., and France launched airstrikes on the Assad regime's alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria.

The United States, France and the United Kingdom pounded Syria with air strikes and Trump said he was prepared to sustain the response until Assad's government stopped its use of chemical weapons.

Inspectors from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog met Syrian officials in Damascus on Monday but have so far been denied access to the former rebel stronghold where the alleged use of toxic substances provoked a US -led strike. The US-led strikes were the biggest global attack on President Bashar al-Assad's regime since the start of Syria's seven-year war.

The attacks struck at the heart of Syria's chemical weapons program, Washington said, in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack a week ago.

Souza graduated previous year from Blind Brook High School in Rye Brook, New York, where he was a star soccer player. Earlier Monday morning, B.U. announced classes were canceled for Monday on the university's messaging program.

The U.K. -based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the Syrian war through activists on the ground, said installations belonging to the country's elite Republican Guards were also targeted.

"The Turkish authorities predictably supported the strikes on targets in Syria", the expert said. According to the same Fox News report, the Pentagon reported "there has been a 2,000 percent increase in Russian trolls online in the last 24 hours", to push a "Russian disinformation campaign", which means, at least for now, Russia is still supporting Assad, even if he is using banned chemical weapons that he denies having.

Assad is convinced his country would continue its development regardless of Western actions, Sablin said. "Chemical weapons have been prohibited for decades and we must enforce this prohibition".

Trump tweeted "mission accomplished" after the strike, describing them as "perfectly executed" and hailing they "could not have had a better result".

The reactions preceded a vote at the UN Security Council rejecting a resolution put forward by Russian Federation to condemn the "aggression" against Syria, which is Moscow's most important foothold in the region.

Macron added that the Russians are "accomplices" of the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime because they blocked the UN Security Council.

Around 30 missiles were fired in the attack, and a third of them were shot down, the official said. Earlier in the week, Germany said it would not participate in any airstrikes against the Syrian regime.

A senior French official noted that President Emmanuel Macron did not tell Putin about the strikes when they spoke on the phone Friday, but "certain de-confliction mechanisms" had already been triggered by that point and "both knew that a new phase was going to begin quickly".

The paper reported that the most expansive proposal included airstrikes on Russian air defense capabilities in Syria.

French President Emmanuel Macron says France wants to launch a diplomatic initiative over Syria that would include Western powers, Russian Federation and Turkey.

Speaking to the BBC, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that Western powers had no plans for further missile strikes, though they would assess their options if Damascus used chemical weapons again.
