US, UK and France Launch Joint Air Strikes in Syria over Assad’s Use of Chemical Weapons 

US, UK and France are in a joint air strike in Syria. The air strikes were targeted at three sites in Syria on Friday night over the use of chemical weapons last week in Douma that killed over 40 people including children. 

The French foreign ministry says the escalation of chemical weapon is not acceptable.  

French president Emmanuel Macron says the joint strikes in Syria are  legitimate and targeted chemical weapons research and prodiction facilities.
Russia which is the principal ally of Assad’s Syria says the attacks are in violation of international law. 

US President Donald Trump has criticized Russia and Iran’s support for Syria. They are Syria major allies despite Bashir al Assad’s repeated  use of chemical weapon which are prohibited by international law.

Meanwhile, Syrian media reports that it’s anti aircraft guns shot down 13 missiles in mid air. 

Iran and Hezbollah are calling the joint strikes illegitimate and bound to fail but President Trump vowed to sustain the strikes until the Syrian government desists from using chemical weapons. “We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents,” he said.
