Nigel Farage turns on Donald Trump after USA airstrikes on Syria

"The Syrians need new leadership for a new time without Assad, and Russian Federation finally needs to do what it says it will do, which is to put pressure on Assad", Rycroft told reporters.

Trump ordered the strike, which reportedly killed nine people, one day after admitting his view of Assad had changed upon hearing about the chemical attack's impact on civilians.

Syrian TV are claiming it shows the USA missile strike, but this has not been confirmed.

Citing United Nations' inspector reports, the Kremlin added Syrian President Bashar al-Assad does not have chemical weapons. A USA official told Fox News that the primary target was an airbase at Shayrat, outside Homs. The United States holds this month's presidency of the Security Council. The Chemical attack that was carried out on Tuesday led to the death of about 80 civilians, among which were 20 children. It is in this vital national security interest of the USA to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.

An editorial in the New York Times, habitually engaged in a war of words with the unpredictable commander-in-chief, said Mr Trump was "right to strike" and "should be commended".

Moscow announced earlier it was halting the deal reached in 2015 in response to the strike, despite Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirming the United States side had warned Russian Federation of the impending attack through the channels it had established.

The U.S. military fired 59 Raytheon Tomahawk cruise missiles off the USS Ross and USS Porter, hitting the Shayrat air base, where U.S. officials believe the Syrian government launched a chemical weapons attack earlier this week.

Tuesday's chemical attack on Idlib province in northern Syria drew the ire of several United Nations member states and received widespread condemnation across the globe.

"Indiscriminate chemical weapons attacks on civilians can never be tolerated and must have consequences". "Many innocent people became victims from the chemical attacks".

"Most of us have been feeling very hopeless". "We've caught them using chemical weapons and gases elsewhere, and this latest incident in which almost 100 people seem to have been killed is yet another example of, if action is not taken, innocent civilians are going to die at the hands of this appalling gas".
