Yemen gov't accuses Iran of arming Houthis with drones

"Last year, President Trump made clear that the use of chemical weapons crosses a red line".

Syrian television reported that Syria's air defenses, which are substantial, responded to the attack.

"The U.S. -led coalition's strike on Syria will make the regional situation more complicated".

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, both Assad allies, have condemned the strikes. "He is lying." The United States, France and Britain said they launched the air strikes against Syrian government military installations in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack by the regime a week ago - a claim dismissed by Damascus and its allies Russian Federation and Iran.

"A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now under way".

Israeli planes then struck an Iranian installation in Syria from which, the IDF explained, the unmanned aircraft had been operated. President Donald Trump had said earlier that the campaign against the regime of Bashar Assad could be "sustained".

"This is unprecedented in seven years: that Israel directly targets Iran's Revolutionary Guard", Nasrallah said.

"The attack on Syria is a crime".

Ankara said the attacks, with weapons of mass destruction, including chemical weapons, that indiscriminately target civilians, "constitute crimes against humanity" and they should not go unpunished.

He says the Russian air defense assets in Syria monitored the strike but didn't engage any of the missiles.

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. He criticized the US and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for inspectors from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog to visit the area. That incursion sparked a series of aerial clashes that resulted in the Iranian aircraft being shot down, an Israeli F-16I getting hit by Syrian anti-aircraft fire and crashing in a field in Israel, and a significant percentage of Syria's air defenses being destroyed in retaliation. "Iran is opposed to the use of chemical weapons on the basis of religious, legal and ethical standards, while at the same time it. strongly condemns (using this) as an excuse to commit aggression against a sovereign state", it added.

"Syria continues to carry out murderous actions and to be a base for these and other actions, including by Iran, that puts its territory, forces and leadership in danger", the terse statement said.

Israel has not confirmed or denied carrying out the strike on the Syrian base, but Israel's military said the drone it downed in February was sighted taking off from that base.
