  • Putin: attack on Syria act of aggression

The war monitor's head, Rami Abdel Rahman, said the area was known to host Iranian forces deployed in Syria to support President Bashar al-Assad's regime as well as allied Afghan fighters from the Fatemiyoun Brigade.

The Israeli statement came after the leader of Hizballah on April 13 called an alleged Israeli air strike in Syria that killed seven Iranians on April 9 a "historic mistake" that will lead to open conflict for the first time between the two Middle Eastern powers. 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.

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

This time about twice the number of cruise missiles were launched by the United States in response to last Saturday's alleged chemical attack by Assad on the town of Douma just outside of Damascus, in which at least 40 people died and hundreds were sickened.

"We waited for it to cross into our territory", he said, stressing that it was important for Israel "to get our hands on the drone".

At least six loud explosions were heard in Damascus in the early hours of Saturday and smoke was seen rising over the Syrian capital, a Reuters witness said.

Israeli planes then struck an Iranian installation in Syria from which, the IDF explained, the unmanned aircraft had been operated.

Danny Drinkwater 'to consider Chelsea future'
Chelsea have won their last four league games against Southampton - they've never won five in a row against them. I don't think the situation that Chelsea are in is Conte's fault - you must give him that season'.

Russian Federation and Syria disagree with Western allies that gas was used by Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces to suppress opposition close to Damascus in an April 7 attack.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed Britain's involvement in the intervention.

French President Emmanuel Macron says his nation, the United States and Britain have launched a military operation against the Syrian government's "clandestine chemical arsenal".

"We would have preferred an alternative path".

"Last year, [US] President [Donald] Trump made it clear that using chemical weapons crossed a red line".

Russia's ambassador to the U.S. warned that there would be consequences for the attacks, adding that it was not acceptable to insult Russia's president.

Within 90 minutes, the Russian ambassador to the U.S. warned of "consequences" for the allied attacks.
