In a threat to America, Russia and Iran warned Donald Trump that their governments will retaliate with military action if more airstrikes are launched on Syria.
According to the two countries, Donald Trump crossed a ‘red line’ with his recent attack on Syria.
Making a joint statement, the military chiefs of the two countries alongside a militant group, Hezbollah said: “From now on we will respond with force to any breach of red lines and America knows our ability to respond well.”
Earlier in the day, the Russian Embassy in London hinted that there could be ‘real war’ if Moscow is presented with an ultimatum over Syria.
NAIJ.com however learnt that Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary will on Monday lead a push for Russia to face tough new sanctions unless it withdraws its support for Assad’s regime in Syria.
NAIJ.com also recalls that in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack that killed scores of civilians, the United States attacked Syria with dozens of cruise missile strikes at a government-controlled airbase.
The strikes, launched from two warships in the Mediterranean Sea, targeted the base’s airstrips, hangars, control tower and ammunition areas.
It was the first direct military action the US has taken against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces in the six-year war.
