Russian lawmakers meet with Assad

They have met Syrian officials and are expected to visit Douma soon.

President Donald Trump declared "mission accomplished" in Friday night's strike on three Syria targets and argued that it "could not have had a better result". Moscow criticised the joint United Nations and OPCW inquiry as flawed.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "will still continue to bomb his people, to gas his people". Gen. Ali Mayhoub said that the Scientific Research Center in Barzeh near Damascus was hit, while three people were injured in Homs when a missile was targeted.

The US, UK, and France hit three targets in the Damascus suburbs around 9pm EDT on Friday using aircraft and cruise missiles launched from ships.

"As of now, we're not aware of any civilian casualties", McKenzie said, noting all of the allied missiles had successfully reached their targets.

"I just want to tell Mr. Trump directly: I'm a Syrian refugee who survived chemical weapons attacks, who lived under two years of siege and bombardment by the government", Kassem Eid told CNN.

The most recent destruction in Syria is the aftermath of the USA who, along with its allies France and the United Kingdom, bombed three empty facilities all related to Syria's chemical weapons.

Syria has repeatedly denied using banned weapons.

Russian Federation circulated the measure ahead of a Security Council meeting to discuss the military operation by the three allies in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack.

Pentagon officials and President Donald Trump on Saturday praised USA airstrikes in Syria, but some locals are saying America hasn't gone far enough. Yet he made no mention of a possible Russian military response.

The Russians say there is no trace of any chemicals and questioned why the allies carried out strikes before the inspectors had reported. Inspectors from the global chemical weapons watchdog group were in Damascus and had been expected to head to Douma on Saturday.

But British Prime Minister Theresa May cited reports she said indicated the Syrian government used a barrel bomb - large containers packed with fuel, explosives and scraps of metal - to deliver the chemicals.

"We clearly need a war powers act in this country to transform a now broken convention into a legal obligation", the Labour leader said. In the face of substantial evidence to the contrary, Russia's pushback on behalf of Syria and Assad is significant.

Following an overnight April 14 missile attack, launched by the US alongside France and the United Kingdom, the Syrian president said the strikes came as the West realized that it had lost control of the situation in the Arab Republic.

It "demands that the USA and its allies immediately and without delay cease the aggression against the Syrian Arab republic and demands also to refrain from any further use of force in violation of worldwide law and the United Nations charter".

"This is hard to do in a situation like this", he said, in light of the volatility of chemical agents.

But Russia and Syria begged to differ, saying missile defenses took out 71 of the 105 missiles fired.

Experts and lawmakers warned before the strikes that although the chance is small, bombing Syria could increase the odds of a war between Russian Federation and the US. But the description from an ally put things differently.

French Defense Minister Florence Parly said the Russians were warned "ahead of time" - despite claims from the Pentagon that Moscow was not notified.

"And they will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons used". "Unfettered access essential. Russian Federation and Syria must cooperate".

The draft text "condemns the aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic by the USA and its allies in violation of worldwide law and the UN Charter". For now, it doesn't appear that Russian Federation is heeding the call by U.S. State Department Press Secretary Heather Nauert who said that Russian Federation "needs to take responsibility".

"We would have preferred an alternative path, but in this case there was none", May said.
