"The objective of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons", Trump said.

Nasrallah said that the Iranians killed in the attack on Syria's T-4 air base were members of Iran's elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

The war monitor's head, Rami Abdel Rahman, said the area was known to host Iranian forces deployed in Syria to support President Bashar al-Assad's regime as well as allied Afghan fighters from the Fatemiyoun Brigade.

In response, the IAF fighter jets targeted Iranian sites in Syria.

US, allies attacking Syria to stop chemical weapons
Syrian state TV said air defenses were confronting the attack and had shot down 13 missiles in the Kiswah area south of Damascus. They blame Damascus for the alleged chemical attack on the town of Douma in the devastated Eastern Ghouta suburb of the capital.

In a televised speech, Khamenei accused U.S. President Donald Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron and UK Prime Minister Teresa May of being "criminals".

"The aggression is in blatant violation of the global rules and regulations and ignores Syria's rights to national sovereignty and territorial integrity", the ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

The EU will also reiterate it would not pay for rebuilding Syria without political dialogue between Damascus and the opposition, criticise Russia, Iran and Turkey for their military interventions in Syria, and call for accountability for crimes committed in the war, including the use of chemical weapons.

Johnson said: "The world is united in its disgust for any use of chemical weapons, but especially against civilians". U.S. President Donald Trump said he was prepared to sustain the response until Assad's government stopped its use of chemical weapons.

"The United States and its allies have no proof and, without even waiting for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to take a position, have carried out this military attack", said the foreign ministry in a statement.

Speaking via satellite link to his supporters in Beirut Friday, Nasrallah called the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma "theater". This complicated situation will be against USA interests.

He says the overnight operation carried out by the United States, France and Britain followed that example.

An official says in a statement Saturday that President Donald Trump made clear past year that the use of chemical weapons was a red line not to be crossed.

The move is part of an effort to reorganize the company to do business more efficiently, the company said. Mr Diess joined VW from German rival BMW in mid-2015, shortly before the scandal erupted publicly.

Berman, they added, "can prevent further disparity in Mr. Atilla's treatment" by taking into account the leniency afforded those banks and their employees, both United States and non-US citizens, who violated sanctions.
