Yemen gov't accuses Iran of arming Houthis with drones

It was the second strike that Trump has authorized in response to such an attack, after ordering a strike on a Syrian air base a year ago following a chemical weapons attack that also left dozens of people dead.

"On the intelligence collected by our services, and in the absence to date of chemical samples analysed by our own laboratories, France considers, beyond possible doubt, a chemical attack was carried out against civilians at Douma. and that there is no plausible scenario other than that of an attack by Syrian armed forces", the report said. Given that no Russians were injured in the strike - there were in fact reports that Russian troops had evacuated the base ahead of time, possibly because of an Israeli warning and possibly out of an abundance of caution in expectation of an American response to the chemical weapons attack - Russia's reaction was unusual.

Khamenei said on Twitter early Saturday the USA and its allies were committing a crime.

Meanwhile, a senior Israeli cabinet minister said on Saturday that the US-led strikes in Syria are an "important signal" to Iran, Syria and Lebanese militant group Hezbollah. Second, the timing of Israel's strike this week came on the heels of the Assad regime's chemical weapons attack in Eastern Ghouta and rampant anticipation that an American response was imminently forthcoming.

Hundreds of Syrians gathered at landmark squares in the Syrian capital Saturday, honking their vehicle horns, flashing victory signs and waving Syrian flags in scenes of defiance that followed unprecedented joint airstrikes by the United States, France and Britain.

Israel has neither confirmed nor denied carrying out the strike on Syria's T4 air base.

"With this attack. the situation will become more complex, and this will surely be at the expense of the United States, which will be responsible for the aftermath of upcoming regional events that will certainly not be in their interest", Yadollah Javani, the Guards' deputy head for political affairs, told Fars news agency.

Iran used the air base as a central command facility, and Israel had attacked it before in order to limit the effectiveness of Iranian spy drones, and reduce any missile threat to Israel.

"Undoubtedly, the United States and its allies, which took military action against Syria despite the absence of any proven evidence. will assume responsibility for the regional and trans-regional consequences of this adventurism", Iran's Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by state media.

Similar messages were passed from Washington to the Prime Minister's Office and the foreign ministry in Jerusalem, Ravid said.

May authorized the strikes without a vote from Parliament, which has been in recess.

The United States, France and Britain launched military strikes in Syria to punish President Bashar Assad for an apparent chemical attack against civilians and to deter him from doing it again, President Donald Trump said.

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis asked all civilised nations to urgently unite in ending the Syrian civil war.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz mentioned there clearly was "a high probability the attack in Syria this week attributed to Israel was against an undercover target that reflected that a similar hazard" since the drone incursion in February.
