US, UK and France launch strikes at Syria’s chemical weapons

US, UK and France launched strikes at three of the Syria’s chemical weapons sites on early hours of Saturday. The attacks were launched after the chemical weapons attack on the Damascus Conclave held in Douma.

Trump announced at White House on Friday regarding these strikes that,

“I ordered US military forces to target with precision strikes on chemical weapons sites of Syria under dictatorship of Bashar Al Asad”.

Strikes commenced at 9 P.M. ET, the time when most of European and eastern world was shrouded in darkness of night. According to witnesses at the time when Trump was making is address, explosions were heard in Damascus. Photos of missiles fired and streaking towards Syria have also appeared on social media as well.

According to Syrian Armed forces, total of 110 missiles were target at multiple sites. Most of the missiles were intercepted while few made it to the targets. One main target that was hit is the Research Centre in Barzeh.

According to Russia’s new agency, TASS, the missiles fired by these western powers were not able to target any or near areas of the Naval and Air bases of Syria. These bases are all under protection of Russian Air Defense Unit.

Three civilian casualties are reported in Homs after missiles intercepted by Syrian Defense Forces.

Defense Secretary, Jim Mattis issued a stamen stating that this is a powerful message that has been sent to Syrian regime.

Russian and Iraqi Foreign ministries both condemned these attacks as the blatant violation of the international laws. They also said that these western attacking forces have neglected the sovereignty of the Syrian territory with their actions.

However the Australian Defense Minster spoke in support of these missile strikes and even called them a “calibrated, proportionate and targeted response”.
