Protests Over US-Led Bombings In Syria Expected To Continue

The Syrian regime killed at least 45 people and sickened hundreds of others in a chemical weapons attack on Douma, Syria, April 7, and on April 13, U.S., British and French service members launched attacks that severely degraded the Syrian chemical arsenal and sent a message to Syrian leader Bashir Assad to stop using chemical weapons against his own people. There will be more.

When asked if there was a more effective way to discourage Assad from using such weapons again, Schake replied, "Yes, you could take Bashar al-Assad out of power".

Pentagon spokesman Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie denied reports that Syrian air defence systems had take down 71 of the missiles launched and said that all 105 had reached their targets.

"The US mission has not changed - the president has been clear that he wants US forces to come home as quickly as possible", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said. "We'll watch his actions".

She said it would affect companies "dealing with equipment related to Assad and any chemical weapons use" as Russian Federation needed to feel the consequences for "protecting" the Assad regime.

The department says that the issue should be resolved by the United Nations Security Council and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Haley, in her Fox News interview, also defended its use as a military term, rather than as a broader political statement.

Following the Saturday missile attack, a number of United States lawmakers openly criticized Trump's decision to order the military action without the consent of Congress. Congressman Seth Moulton wrote on Twitter that such an action "requires the authorization of Congress - unless you don't believe in the Constitution".

De Blasis eventually added a second goal for the hosts late in the game following a mistake by Freiburg keeper Alexander Schwolow. It was not related to the penalty decision but instead a protest against Bundesliga fixtures being played on Monday nights.

The United States and its allies said Sunday there are no plans for further attacks against Syria, but warned additional chemical attacks could prompt military response. If Assad continues to use chemical weapons, he can expect increased attacks.

"I see desperation. I see cynicism", he said. More than 100 Russian diplomats were expelled from more than 20 countries in March over the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy on British soil, which the United Kingdom and U.S. has blamed on the Russian government. -Russian relations are at a low point. We must send a strong message to Putin and Russian Federation as well.

There's been widespread condemnation of the incident including from US President Donald Trump. Weeks later, it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency, and USA forces remained in the country for years.

The OPCW is holding an emergency meeting Monday in The Hague to discuss the suspected chemical attack in Douma.

"We are still conducting a more detailed damage assessment, but initial indications are that we accomplished our military objectives without material interference". But late Saturday, senior administration officials called the evidence "incontrovertible".

Syrian state media said the attack would fail and called it a "flagrant violation of global law".

Demonstrators gathered in major cities across Iraq on Sunday to protest USA -led airstrikes against Syria in protests called for by Muqtada Sadr, the influential Shiite cleric who led the Mehdi Army that fought US forces after the toppling of Saddam Hussein's regime in 2003.
