Attack on Syria act of aggression, says Putin

Attack on Syria act of aggression, says Putin

What's unclear is where that red line now stands. Monterey is deployed to the US 5th Fleet area of operations in support of maritime security operations to reassure allies and partners and preserve the freedom of navigation and the free flow of commerce in the region.

The chemical attack: Dozens of people were reportedly killed and many more injured in a suspected chemical weapons attack in the city of Douma last week.

Syria says it had given up its chemical weapons in 2013.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has backed the air strikes as a "necessary and appropriate" action to warn Syria against further use of chemical weapons.

The first image is from April 8 and the second is from Saturday. "All the things that we need to live are being cut", he said.

But analysts question the reasons for these latest raids - which signalled that Western leaders would not let a chemical weapons attack go without punishment - but demurred about deeper involvement when barrel bombs are used. The Trump administration has never articulated its strategy or goal in Syria beyond fighting Islamic State militants and calling for political negotiations to replace Assad.

But the vote at the end of an emergency meeting called by Russian Federation also demonstrated again the paralysis of the U.N.'s most powerful body in dealing with Syria's seven-year conflict. Moscow slammed the joint United Nations and OPCW inquiry as flawed. Putin demanded a United Nations Security Council immediately. "Public estimates are as high as 200", she said.

The Pentagon says that missile strikes by the United States, Britain and France hit all the targets in Syria.

"We deployed 105 weapons against three targets that will significantly impact the Syrian regime's ability to develop, deploy and use chemical weapons in the future", said Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, Director of the Joint Staff during a Pentagon Press Conference Saturday.
