  • Syria’s capital has been rocked by loud explosions that lit up the sky with heavy smoke as U.S. President Donald Trump announce

Algeria has criticised air strikes carried out by the United States, France and Britain against Syria, Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia said on Saturday. The Western states have accused forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad of an attack with the use of chemical weapons in Duma. President Donald Trump "enforces" the red line and the USA will sustain the pressure on the war-torn nation, she said. He added, "So proud of our great Military which will soon be, after the spending of billions of fully approved dollars, the finest that our Country has ever had".

Last night the UN Security Council has rejected a resolution tabled by Russian Federation calling for condemnation of the "aggression" by the United States and its allies against Syria.

He also did not rule out further attacks against Syria if the Assad regime continued the alleged use of chemical weapons.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told the BBC the primary objective of the attack was to "say no to the use of barbaric chemical weapons".

The US is set to impose more economic sanctions on Russian Federation for its support of Syrian President Bashar Assad, as the political fallout over the Syrian missile strike continues.

The US, Britain and France say they launched airstrikes against Syrian chemical sites after obtaining "proof" that poisonous gas was used last weekend in Douma, killing 41 civilians.

The US has warned it "is locked and loaded" to strike Syria if any more chemical attacks occur.

For adoption, a resolution requires at least nine votes in favor on the condition that none of the permanent members - Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States - votes against.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Army announced on April 14 that eastern Ghouta, the region near Damascus where Douma is situated, had been cleared of the last rebel fighters and was fully retaken.

"I suspect, however, they'll think long and hard about it", he said.

Mr Assad said that he believed that the airstrikes would unify the country, according to Dmitry Sablin who was one of his visitors.

The narrowly targeted pre-dawn military operation on Saturday took aim at three alleged chemical weapons facilities.

The West has accused Syria of failing to live up to its commitment to scrap its chemical weapons programme under a deal reached between the United States and Russian Federation. Macron said in an interview broadcast by BFM TV, RMC radio and Mediapart online news that he had convinced Trump to focus on the chemical weapons sites.

A bullish Bashar Al Assad was in a good mood when he met a group of visiting Russian lawmakers after the attacks were more limited than predicted following Mr Trump's initially aggressive response to the Douma attack.
