Iran Warns Of "Regional Consequences" Of Syria Strikes

"We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents".

UK Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed Britain's involvement in the intervention.

The announcement could be meant to bolster Israel's case for taking military action in Syria. Trump asked in his address before ordering the airstrike on Syriam chemical weapons sites. "If they give excuses to Iran, Tel Aviv and Haifa will be destroyed", cleric Ali Shirazi said on Thursday according to the semi-official Fars news agency.

Netanyahu said Syrian president Bashar al-Assad must understand that "his provision of a forward base for Iran and its proxies endangers Syria". The US and its allies fired over 100 missiles at civilians and Syrian military bases in the capital city of Damascus.

More than 100 missiles were fired from ships and manned aircraft, and the allies struck three of Syria's main chemical weapons facilities, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Joseph Dunford said.

Since the chemical gas attack on Douma, the regime in Tehran has been quiet.

Comey reportedly wants he'd found 'greater means' to elucidate Clinton's e-mail use
In recent days, a war of words has erupted between Comey and his former boss, President Donald Trump . Comey said in his new tome that he would have made different choices regarding the email probe.

The US President said: "I also have a message tonight for the two governments most responsible for supporting, equipping, and financing the criminal Assad regime".

Russia's Ministry of Defense claimed Syria's air defense systems intercepted 71 missiles launched in the airstrikes.

Putin similarly said the airstrikes violated global law.

Nicholas Heras, a Middle East Security Fellow at the Center for a New American Security, described Trump's actions as a "dog and pony show".

Shakhawan Abdullah, also a Kurdish MP like Jaff, said the Hashd al-Shaabi's leadership had an agreement with the Iranian government to sell it Iraqi crude at lower than market prices.

The three countries defended the action at an emergency council meeting Saturday, with the U.S. vowing to take further action should the Assad regime launch another attack using weapons of mass destruction.

Within 90 minutes, the Russian ambassador to the U.S. warned of "consequences" for the allied attacks.

The US was also anxious that the strikes would prompt a confrontation with Syria's biggest military ally: Russian Federation . French Defense Minister Florence Parly said that "with our allies, we ensured that the Russians were warned ahead of time".

Berman, they added, "can prevent further disparity in Mr. Atilla's treatment" by taking into account the leniency afforded those banks and their employees, both U.S. and non-US citizens, who violated sanctions. The response from Syria and its backers following the 2017 United States strike in Syria was muted despite repeated threats. "Hopefully, someday we'll get along with Russian Federation, and maybe even Iran - but maybe not". "If al-Assad and his allies can weaken the SDF, they can crack the foundation of the United States military's planning for Syria".

First, this is the same base that Israel hit in February following an Iranian drone's penetration of Israeli airspace, and it houses not only the Iranian unmanned aerial vehicle headquarters in Syria but Russian and Syrian troops as well.

On Monday, suspected Israeli warplanes targeted Syria's T-4 air base, drawing a rebuke from Russian Federation and vows of retaliation from Iran.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz said there was "a high probability that the attack in Syria this week attributed to Israel was against an Iranian target that represented a similar threat" as the drone incursion in February. Such a move would restrict Israel's freedom to maneuver across Syria's skies. Assad's recent attack - and today's response - are the direct result of Russia's failure to keep that promise.

He wrote: "Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria".

Leaders of Iran and Hizballah have repeatedly called for the destruction of Israel, though HIzballah has not engaged in an open conflict with Tel Aviv since losing a monthlong war in 2006.
