Iran condemns overnight missile attacks on Syria

15 April 2018

US-led strikes on the Syrian regime on Saturday were aimed at "chemical weapons infrastructure" in what the USA billed as a warning against Bashar Assad employing such weapons in the future.

Emphasising that the strikes are directed at the Syrian regime, Mattis said in conducting these strikes, the USA has gone to great lengths to avoid civilian and foreign casualties.

France has concluded after analysing "reliable intelligence" and open sources that a chemical attack on Douma on April 7 was carried out by Syrian government forces, a declassified intelligence report showed on Saturday, according to Reuters.

"They will gain no benefit; just as they did not while in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, over the past years, committing the same criminal acts", he said.

Riyadh said on Wednesday it had shot down two drones in the south of the kingdom as well as intercepting ballistic missiles fired from rebel-held parts of Yemen, the latest in a series of similar incidents.

Immediately before Israel's claim that the Iranian drone was armed, the leader of the Lebanese terror group said that "The Israelis committed a historic mistake. and put themselves in direct combat with Iran", Nasrallah warned in a televised address. "But on this occasion there is none", Theresa May said adding that the attacks were not about "regime change" or "intervening in a civil war", but were to "deter the use of chemical weapons" by the Syrian government.

May authorized the strikes without a vote from Parliament, which has been in recess. A fact-finding team of inspectors from the global chemical weapons watchdog was in Damascus and had been expected to head to the town of Douma on Saturday, scene of the suspected chemical weapons attack that killed more than 40 people.

It also repeats the claims made by Russian officials that a majority of the missiles launched by the United States had been intercepted.

Many politicians in Britain, including some in May's own Conservative Party, had called for parliament to be recalled from holiday to give authority to any military strike.

Trump said he was prepared to sustain the response until the Assad government stopped its use of chemical weapons.

Assad told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani that a USA -led attack on Saturday would increase Syria's resolve to "fight and crush terrorism in every inch" of the country.

State media outlets in Syria have reported that the attacks are "a flagrant violation of worldwide law and demonstrate the contempt of these countries for this law".
