US Calls Military Strikes on Syria a Success; Russia, Iran Slam Attacks

Hezbollah's chief terrorist, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, said the attack on the air base in Syria ushers in a new phase that puts Israel in a state of "direct confrontation" with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Initial reports said the explosions were heard at Jabal Azan, a small Iranian base south of Aleppo.

Among the eight reported targets attacked were military bases, research institutes and chemical weapons storage facilities in Syria.

Russian Federation and Iran, both allies of the Bashar Al-Assad regime in Syria, strongly condemned the joint strikes carried out in Syria by the United States, France and Britain on April 14.

Putin added Russian Federation would convene an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council in response. The organization has previously determined that chemical weapons have been used in Syria.

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

The inspectors were due to attempt to visit the site of the suspected gas attack in Douma on April 7, which medical relief organisations say killed dozens of people.

Haaretz pointed out that "Israel" is concerned about the possible USA decision to withdraw troops from Syria in light of the President Donald Trump's statements which considered that the tripartite aggression is enough.

"These are not the actions of a man", Trump said of last weekend's attack in a televised address from the White House Diplomatic Room.

Britain and France joined the United States in the strikes in a coordinated operation that was meant to show Western resolve in the face of what the leaders of the three nations called persistent violations of worldwide law.

Netanyahu said that it should be "clear to President Assad that "his reckless efforts to acquire and use weapons of mass destruction, his wanton disregard for global law and his provision of a forward base for Iran and its proxies endanger Syria".

"It was the first time we attacked live Iranian targets", the IDF officer told NYT journalist Thomas Friedman, "both facilities and people".

"After examining the videos and images of victims published online, they (intelligence services) were able to conclude with a high degree of confidence that the vast majority are recent and not fabricated", the report said.
