    Syrian State TV announces Syrian Air Defense Forces have launched counter strikes against “American, French and British aggression on Syria”

    local sources claim missile strikes have hit a major #Hezbollah base in Al-Qusayr, near the #Lebanon border.
    That’d be a very significant development - the first (I believe) U.S. strike *ever* on Hezbollah & a potent message to #Iran.

    Paul Antonopoulos
    MAJOR! Russian jets have become active in the skies. They have left the Hmeimim airbase in #Latakia province. Not sure what their role is. #Syria

    There are reports that Russian Airforce jets took off from #Latakia just now.

    That’s just fn awful. US backed “rebels” use chemweapons on Syrians, the US blames Syria for their own ally’s strike, and further launches airstrikes on civilian populations.

    My friend Mike just sent me a message:

    Prez to announce strike in Syria in the next hour. Not sure what that will mean ... tomorrow morning the world may be very different.
    Hang on to your hats, guys. I don't think anyone will lose their cools, but given the infantile stupidity that passes for statesmanship today, I can no longer rule anything out beyond the edges of my comfort.

    Stay tuned.

    So far everything suggests that the strike was very limited, fully avoided any area with Russian presence

    No Russian interference. Again, some people are posting disinformation.

    And just like that; it is quiet in Damascus now. Seems to be over.

    PENTAGON BRIEFING

    US Gen. Joseph Dunford: "There has been only surface-to-air retaliation to this point."

    US Gen. Joseph Dunford: "We did not pre-notify the Russians."

    US Gen. Joseph Dunford: "This wave of strikes is over. That's why we are out here talking to you now."

    Sec. Def. Mattis: "We have no additional attacks planned."

    Mattis: "Right now, this is a one time shot." Says he believes Assad will get the message and be deterred from doing this again.

    Dunford:"We did de-conflict the air space with the Russians using standard de-conflict methods, but did not communicate targets."

    Update 3: at 10PM ET the, Defense Secretary Mattis and Joseph Dunford, the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff provided the Pentagon's update, repeating that U.S., British and and French forces struck Syrias chemical weapons infrastructure tonight.

    Mattis said that "Clearly, the Assad regime did not get the message last year. This time, our allies and we have struck harder."

    — ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) April 14, 2018
    Mattis adds that "I want to emphasize these strikes are directed at the Syrian regime. In conducting these strikes, we have gone to great lengths to avoid civilian and foreign casualties."
    Then, Dunford said that the first target was a Syrian research facility, and adds that the US selected targets that would minimize risk to innocent civilians. He adds that attacks on multiple sites of Syria chemical weapons infrastructure "inflicted maximum damage."
    The third target, which was in the vicinity of the second target, contained both the chemical weapons equipment storage facility and an important command post."
    Meanwhile, the White House said that the US is confident the Syrian regime was behind the chemical weapons attack, based on:

    • media sources
    • victims’ symptoms
    • videos
    • “reliable information indicating coordination between Syrian military officials before the attack.”

    It was pretty clear up front that they avoided Russian positions pretty diligently. The reports that are disputed are of missiles and/or bombs striking residential areas.

    Mattis is saying that that they only targeted chem weapon sites, photos from Twitter etc in Damascus showing residential areas being hit. It remains possible that there were chem sites hidden in the residential area, but we don’t know that either.

    I expect some of the surface to air missiles will miss their targets and land in civilian neighborhoods.

    Of course the U.S. will be blamed for the damage to those neighborhoods.

    Update 4: Joint Chiefs chairman Dunford said that while the strikes sought to minimize risk of Russian casualties, the US did not pre-notify Russia of the Syria strikes.
    More from Dunford:


    • "We did have some surface-to-air missile activity from the Syrian regime."
    • "The US did not pre-notify Russian forces in Syria about tonight's kinetic activity."
    • "Russia was alerted of Syria strikes through "deconfliction" line in Qatar"
    • "U.S. forces in Syria did make adjustments to force protection levels ahead of the combined air operations against the Syrian regime."
    • "This wave of airstrikes is over. More information will follow in the morning."
    • "Manned aircraft involved in Syria operation"
    • "Pentagon will brief tomorrow will more strike details"


    Mattis chimed in:


    • "We used a little over double the number of weapons this year than we used last year...We were very precise and proportionate, but at the same time, it was a heavy strike."
    • "I am confident the Syrian regime conducted a chemical attack on innocent people."
    • "Right now we have no more attacks planned"
