United Nations fails to adopt Russian-drafted resolution against military strikes on Syria

A missile from the air defenses belonging to the Syrian Arab Air Force attempts to intercept a coalition missile in Damascus

It's clear President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Theresa May and President Emmanuel Macron weren't authorized by the U.N.to attack President Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons facilities, and Assad's chemical weapons didn't pose a direct threat to any Western nation involved in Friday's joint strike.

US ambassador to the United Nations discusses USA -led strikes on the Assad regime in retaliation for suspected chemical weapons attack, future of USA policy toward Syria, Russia and Iran.

Haley gave Russian Federation a stern warning about the Syrian regime's future use of chemical weapons, a warning she said came directly from President Donald Trump.

Dozens chanted and held signs to demonstrate their disappointment in President Trump's decision to use military force in Syria without first letting worldwide organizations confirm the chemical attacks.

"We urge responsible nations to condemn the Assad regime and to join us in our firm resolve to prevent chemical weapons from being used again", Mattis said.

State media published images of a cloud of reddish smoke hanging over the capital and said that air defences were activated to block the attack.

The Russian military also claimed Syria shot down the cruise missiles that were launched at a Syrian air base.

The Syrian President has today claimed 40-year-old "Soviet missiles" thwarted the joint bombing raid by Britain, the U.S. and France on his chemicals weapons facilities. I support President Trump's limited action to target chemical weapons facilities and hold this brutal regime accountable.

The demonstrators questioned the real objective of the U.S. military operation.

Gen. Ali Mayhoub said that the Scientific Research Center in Barzeh near Damascus was hit, while three people were injured in Homs when a missile was targeted.

Ireland will not condemn the air strikes and Irish sources said there was no division within the European Union about the need to deter chemical attacks and that the Assad regime was involved in wholesale slaughter of its own people. He said the targets selected by U.S., British and French officials were meant to minimize civilian casualties.

In 2013, he said, "we should stay the hell out of Syria" and "Let the Arab League take care of Syria".

"You can keep burning people alive and dropping barrel bombs over cities, but don't use chemical weapons, because it will make us look bad".

Soussan reiterated a pledge by the Syrian government that the chemical experts would be allow to investigate unimpeded.
