Syria attack: Russian Federation and Iran WILL PAY next warns former Bush counsel

Moments after President Donald Trump concluded his seven-minute broadcast Friday announcing the start of precision airstrikes on Syrian government facilities associated with the development of chemical weapons, loud explosions shook Damascus.

The U.K., U.S. and France launched the attacks near Damascus early Saturday.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Saturday denounced the airstrikes on Syria launched by the U.S., Britain and France as a "crime".

Trump characterized it as the beginning of a sustained effort to force Assad to "stop using banned weapons", but only ordered a limited, one-night operation that hit three targets, New York Times reported.

Iran's leaders vowed retaliation for the attack, but did nothing; they understand very well that the situation in Syria could become even uglier, and they would pay a heavy price. President Donald Trump had said earlier that the campaign against the regime of Bashar Assad could be "sustained".

"Right now we have no additional strikes planned", he said. "The American president, the French president and the British prime minister are criminals, they will gain nothing from it", he said.

In a statement, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said the USA and its allies "will assume the responsibility for the regional and trans-regional consequences of this adventurism".

United Kingdom joins Syria air strikes in response to chemical attack
May said intelligence and open source accounts indicated that the Syrian government was behind the attack in Douma last Saturday. In her comments, May also alluded to a nerve agent attack in Britain last month on a former Russian spy and his daughter.

"It was a heavy strike", Mattis said of the attack on Assad's chemical weapons facilities. Officials also said the strike was larger than a similar attack on the Assad regime launched a year ago.

According to the Russian military the strike was carried out by two Israeli F-15 jets with guided missiles fired from Lebanon's airspace.

"Let them make no mistake now: they are now [fighting] face to face with the Islamic Republic in Iran", he said.

Analyst Hossein Sheikholeslam, a former Iranian ambassador to Damascus, told state television the attacks would help unite Syrians behind the government.

Johnson said: "The world is united in its disgust for any use of chemical weapons, but especially against civilians". He's also going to hold the Russians and the Iranians who are propping up this regime responsible.

The military said the February 10 incident over the northern town of Beit Shean marked the first time Iran has tried to directly strike Israel, rather than working through its close ally, the Lebanese Hizballah militia, or other proxies. "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", he added.
