US 'Acted Appropriately' with Syria Strikes

Asked who were the "chief financial beneficiaries" of the sanctions evasion scheme, prosecutors said, "First and foremost, the scheme benefited the Iranian government entities whose access to oil revenue and to the United States financial system was restricted under the sanctions laws".

Tensions on Israel's northern border have been rising in recent months as Israel fears that Iran is entrenching itself deeper into war-torn Syria with its presence on Israel's borders growing in strength.

U.S., British and French forces hit Syria with air strikes overnight in response to an alleged poison gas attack that killed dozens of people last week.

"The attack this morning against Syria is a crime", he said.

Trump announced Friday night that the U.S., France and Britain have launched military strikes in Syria to punish President Bashar Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians and to deter him from doing it again.

The "attack on Syria is a crime".

Germany, Italy and the Netherlands say they will not join any military action.


But it remains unclear if they were struck by French and British manned aircraft and cruise missiles rather than by the US military.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, both Assad allies, have condemned the strikes.

"Undoubtedly, the USA and its allies, which took military action against Syria despite the absence of any proven evidence and before any final statement by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW)..., will be held accountable for the regional and trans-regional consequences of this adventurism", it noted.

It added that Yemen's military did not possess such aircraft and it was "impossible to manufacture them locally".

The joint strike came after the White Helmets, a civil defense agency, blamed the Assad regime for the chemical attack, which it said killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.

Trump says that last Saturday, Syrian President Bashar Assad deployed chemical weapons in what was a "significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very bad regime". Dunford said "normal deconfliction channel was used to deconflict airspace" with Moscow, but that the United States did not share with Russian Federation what sites would be targeted.

    Dunford said he was unaware of any USA troop losses, and could neither confirm or deny Syrian reports of missiles being shot down. Those inspectors are working against the clock: The gases used dissipate over time, making it harder to confirm as days go by.
