President Trump tweets about Syria strikes: 'Mission Accomplished!'

On Friday evening, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that his country along with France and Britain had launched coordinated military strikes against three targets in Syria.

President Donald Trump on Saturday declared "Mission Accomplished" after ordering a military strike on suspected chemical weapons targets in Syria Friday night, provoking strong protests by Syrian leaders, Iran and Russian Federation.

The Pentagon described the attack as "precise, overwhelming and effective" with two thirds of the missiles targeting and destroying the key research centre of the Syrian chemical weapons programme at Barzah near Damascus.

"Russia in the most serious way condemns the attack on Syria where Russian military servicemen help the legitimate government to fight terrorism", he said.

According to a White House assessment, the Syrian government used chemical weapons in Duma, Al-Quadri's hometown, on April 7, killing dozens of men, women and children and leaving hundreds of others injured.

The biggest challenge for Markle will be "just putting up with it", said the outspoken feminist. "I think she'll bolt", she said. They are scheduled to be Wednesday at Windsor Castle on May 19 and more than 2,500 people have been invited to attend the event.

Russia, meanwhile, demanded a vote on a United Nations resolution that would condemn "the aggression" against Syria by the USA and its allies.

"Last night, operations were very successful", Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said at a briefing Saturday morning.

It is our goal "to see American troops come home, but we are not going to leave until we know we have accomplished those things", Haley said. They're not resettled refugees; both have become USA citizens, but Kalil says many of their relatives still live in Syria.

On Saturday, the Trump administration said the strikes accomplished three strategic goals: to deliver a direct response to the chemical weapons attack, to hold Assad responsible for his actions, and to present a deterrent on chemical weapons use in Syria and elsewhere in the future.

She added: "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line".

"The strikes may convince (Russian President Vladimir) Putin to stop further use (of chemical weapons) by Assad as it remains clear we are pulling out of Syria. They are unlikely to alter the overall trajectory of the Syrian civil war".

Haley said the airstrikes did not change USA strategy in Syria.

"If there is a chemical weapons attack - there must be a reaction from the worldwide community". He said at least one chemical was used - chlorine, which has legitimate industrial uses and had not previously triggered a US military response.

Moscow wants an emergency session of the UN Security Council, where it is a permanent member, to discuss the "aggressive actions" of the U.S. and its allies. In a calculated show of defiance, the presidency posted a video showing Mr Assad apparently turning up for work following the attacks.

White also said the United States is "very confident" that the Assad regime was behind the chemical weapons attack on civilians. Analysts and diplomats said the strike was unlikely to shake Assad's hold on power or change the trajectory of the conflict.
