Iranian parliamentary delegation to visit Syria following US-led airstrikes

Vladimir Putin Donald Trump Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron

Fourteen people were killed in the attack.

The targets included a scientific research facility near Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility west of the city of Homs, and a third location near Homs that contained both a command post and a chemical weapons equipment storage facility, the USA military said.

According to Tehran based Pres TV, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the "aggressive" U.S. move to carry out military strikes against Syria reveals that Washington has "direct ties" with terrorists.

"More than 100 cruise missiles and air-to-land missiles were fired by the US, Britain and France from the sea and air at Syrian military and civilian targets", the ministry said in a statement quoted by RIA Novosti news agency.

The U.S. said Saturday its airstrikes against Syria were successful while Syrian allies Iran and Russian Federation argue the attack was a violation of worldwide law.

Nashville takes 2-0 series lead after 5-4 win over Avalanche
The Avs have gone 28-13 here at home for the year and they have averaged 3.54 gpg and have allowed 2.39 gpg in those games. Yet the Predators rallied again to take their first 2-0 lead when starting a best-of-seven series in their own building.

Iran's leaders vowed retaliation for the attack, but did nothing; they understand very well that the situation in Syria could become even uglier, and they would pay a heavy price.

An Israeli defense official confirmed that it was the Israeli Air Force that struck the T-4 air base in Homs, Syria, last week, The New York Times reported on Monday. They concluded that the attack was consistent with previous attacks carried out by the regime and said no other groups had the means and capabilities to use sarin gas. At an 11 a.m. Security Council meeting Saturday, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged nations "to show restraint in these risky circumstances and to avoid any acts that could escalate matters and worsen the suffering of the Syrian people".

Putin said Russian investigators have found no evidence of a chemical attack in Douma. She said with the deadline approaching on May 12, to fix or nix the nuclear deal with Iran, "we have an opportunity right here to cut one of the Assad regime's essential life lines". He criticized the U.S, Britain and France for declining to wait until after the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons completes its own investigation there.

"Without the sanction of the UN Security Council, in breach of the UN charter and the norms and principles of global law, an act of aggression was committed against a sovereign state", the Kremlin said.

In Damascus, Syria's deputy foreign minister, Faisal Mekdad, met inspectors from the global chemical weapons watchdog OPCW for about three hours in the presence of Russian officers and a senior Syrian security official.
