United States to hit Russian Federation with new sanctions for aiding Syria's Assad

The US, the United Kingdom and France launched a series of attacks on specific targets in the war-torn country and CNN reported that the coalition forces claimed that they were targeting a research laboratory and two storage facilities which were believed to be the country's chemical weapons programme sites.

Britain, France and the United States said they bombed sites linked to Syria's chemical weapons program after a suspected chemical attack in the town of Douma, just outside of Damascus.

Enough to deter chemical weapons use? .

Mrs May will ask for an emergency debate to allow more time for discussion in a nod to the fury among MPs at not being consulted, but she is not offering a vote.

The strikes came after the Assad regime was accused of carrying out a chemical attack in Syria's Douma, which killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.

Theresa May is to face MPs' questions about her decision to authorise air strikes against the Syrian government.

"The American (military) knows well that going towards a wide confrontation and a big operation against the regime and the army and the allied forces in Syria could not end, and any such confrontation would inflame the entire region", Nasrallah said. The Pentagon says no missiles were engaged.

But, MPs did not get to vote on whether they approved of the decision to attack Syria's chemical weapons facilities.

"The repeated and morally reprehensible use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime in the past has been confirmed by independent global investigators".


An OPCW fact-finding team is also in Syria to probe the alleged attack on Douma in which 40 people died.

The bombings marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Assad and ally Russian Federation.

Both Syria, which denies any chemical use, and Russian Federation, which provides military support to the Syrian government, have reacted angrily to the action.

If there is a Russian, Syrian or Iranian response, it is likely to be indirect and asymmetrical, such as targeting or undermining the United States presence in Syria or retaliating against its allies.

Syrian state TV reported overnight that anti-aircraft defenses had shot down missiles fired at an air base in the Homs area, and a media unit run by the Lebanese group Hezbollah said missiles had also targeted an air base near Damascus.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said the U.S. military had kept its strikes limited because it knew a wider attack would spark retaliation from Damascus and its allies and inflame the region.

Following Saturday's US-led strikes, a top Russian defense official, Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoi, said Moscow may reconsider supplying Syria with S-300 surface-to-air missile systems to upgrade its aging Soviet-era anti-missile systems.

Germany, Italy, Canada, Australia and European Council President Donald Tusk have "all have expressed their support for the actions that Britain, France and America have taken", the PM will add.
