Podcast | What prompted USA-led coalition to attack Syria

State news agency SANA reported several missiles hit a research centre in Barzeh, north of Damascus, "destroying a building that included scientific labs and a training centre". As he spoke, explosions rocked Damascus.

Pentagon analysis backs up President Donald Trump's statement that Friday night's missile strikes on Syrian chemical weapons facilities were a success.

With the United States launching an air strike on Syria on Saturday morning, with help from the UK and France, the situation looks set to escalate as Russian Federation promised "consequences".

But Vassily Nebenzia, Russia's ambassador to the United Nations, accused Western powers on Friday of using the alleged attack as a pretense to oust Assad and to check Russia's power, telling the United Nations security council that Russia would consider such a strike a "breach of global law".

"We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences", he said.

Trump said the strikes were in coordination with France and the United Kingdom, adding that the goal of the campaign is to "establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons". "So, I ordered the French armed forces to intervene tonight, as part of an global operation in coalition with the United States of America and the United Kingdom and directed against the clandestine chemical arsenal of the Syrian regime".

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, condemned Russian Federation on Friday over its support for Assad, saying before the U.N. security council that "Russia alone" was responsible for enabling the Syrian strongman.

Douma was the last rebel-held town in the Eastern Ghouta suburb of Damascus, and is the site of the alleged gas attack that prompted a volley of Western air strikes on Saturday.

JLR may shed up to 1000 jobs in UK
Last year, JLR's British plants - which also includes the factory in Halewood - produced 532,107 vehicles last year. Diesel sales account for around 90% of the brand's overall sales in the UK.

Alexander Sherin, deputy head of the State Duma's defense committee, says Trump "can be called Adolf Hitler No. 2 of our time _ because, you see, he even chose the time that Hitler attacked the Soviet Union".

All 12, it said, had been downed using Soviet-made air defense systems. The gas attack, as claimed by him killed at least 40 people.

"Russia in the most serious way condemns the attack on Syria where Russian military servicemen help the legitimate government to fight terrorism", Putin said. A US official told Reuters that Tomahawk cruise missiles also were involved. The missiles had been shot down in the Kiswah area south of the capital Damascus, it said.

The U.K. -based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the Syrian war through activists on the ground, said the strikes had also targeted positions of elite Republican Guard forces.

A statement released by French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday said that a "red line set by France in May 2017 has been crossed".

"Insulting the president of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", Antonov added.

In a combined operation, the US, Britain and France today launched military strikes against Bashar al-Assad's Syrian regime, President Donald Trump announced, as he alleged the war-torn nation of using chemical weapons against its own people.
