Syrians rally in Damascus in support of Assad against US-led strikes

Air strikes on Syria will not change course of war UK's Johnson

Additionally, the leaders said that Syria had destroyed its stockpile of chemical weapons and is no longer producing such chemical agents, as per a deal Damascus agreed to in 2013 in Geneva.

Members of Congress share varying messages after Syria airstrikes. It has met with Syrian officials but has not visited the town at the centre of the controversy.

"Our warnings have been left unheard", Russia's ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, said in a tweet on Saturday morning.

"Nobody can imagine someone who uses chemical weapons against his own people to be part of this solution".

The Kremlin quickly denied reports that Russian Federation was not allowing the OPCW mission in, without elaborating.

Under the War Powers Resolution, the president must keep Congress informed of such actions.

The OPCW is holding an emergency meeting on Monday in the Hague to discuss the suspected chemical attack in Douma.

What do we know about the strikes themselves?


Passengers on the convoy told AFP after arriving in the northern province of Aleppo that gunfire had killed one person and wounded three others, all from the same family, but gave no details on the victim. The joint body was created in 2015 and found the Syrian government responsible for a sarin gas attack on Khan Shaykhoun, a rebel-held area in northern Syria previous year.

Assad denies he has used chemical weapons, and the Trump administration has yet to present hard evidence of what it says precipitated the allied missiles attack: a chlorine gas attack on civilians in Douma on April 7.

America and its allies insist they're not calling for regime change but say Syrian president Bashar al Assad will be held accountable if he continues gassing his people. Mr Stoltenberg spoke in an interview with Turkey's NTV television on Monday.

Syrians gather in a central square in Damascus on April 16.

State TV broadcast the rally live from the central Omayyad Square.

State television broadcast the rally live as participants waved Syrian flags and set off fireworks and celebratory gunfire, according to the AP. That suggests that despite Russia's warnings of dire consequences, it appears Russian commanders are being extremely careful not to respond in a way that could escalate tensions with the USA into a shooting war.

Several Indianapolis lawmakers have voiced their support for President Donald Trump's administration and decisions after the US military launched strikes with the United Kingdom and France in response to the Syrian regime's recent chemical weapons attack on its own civilians.

President Trump said Saturday morning airstrikes in Syria overnight were "perfectly executed", hours after he announced the US, United Kingdom and France launched precision missile strikes in Syria in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria last weekend.

· Russian Federation reported that the Syrian air defense systems intercepted around 70 of the missiles that had been fired towards the targets in Syria but the USA chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford said he was aware of no initial losses.
