Israel, Turkey, Canada: US-led strikes on Syria 'justified'

The Syrian government's staunch allies strongly condemned the overnight airstrikes on Assad regime targets, with Iran's supreme leader branding as "criminals" President Donald Trump, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron.
Early on Saturday, the USA, the United Kingdom and France fired more than 100 missiles from ships and manned aircraft at Syria in response to an alleged chemical attack in the city of Douma, which the countries blamed on Damascus.
A global chemical warfare watchdog group says its fact-finding mission to Syria will go ahead even after the USA -led airstrikes.
While NATO has issued a strong statement of support for its three allies which launched a military strike against Syria over the suspected chemical attack of last weekend, the United Nations called for restraint.
Several Iranian military advisers were killed in that attack, including a colonel who served as a senior officer in Iran's drone program, according to Iranian news reports, and Iran has threatened to retaliate.
"He adds ominously, "Hopefully someday we'll get along with Russian Federation, and maybe even Iran, but maybe not".
China said it was "opposed to the use of force" in worldwide relations.
Public anger and objections to Iran's presence in Syria, and people's frustration with a collapsing economy, turned into protests in January. Officials also said the strike was larger than a similar attack on the Assad regime launched past year. It fears Iran could use Syrian territory to stage attacks or form a land corridor from Iran to Lebanon that could allow it to transfer weapons more easily to Hezbollah - Lebanon's Iranian-backed political party and militant group sworn to Israel's destruction. The United States would not be going to war with Assad or his chief allies, Russian Federation and Iran.
The presence of Russian troops and air defenses in Syria were among numerous complications weighing on Trump, who must also consider the dangers to roughly 2,000 American troops in the country if Russia were to retaliate for US strikes.
