"France is ready to conduct further airstrikes in Syria in response to Damascus' use of chemical weapons, French President Emmanuel Macron said Monday during his speech to French ambassadors.
"We will continue acting this way if we see new confirmed cases of the chemical weapons use," Macron said.
Confirmed? How? By who? White Helmets? Using social media as a proof?
From July... Recalling the Israeli airstrike in Northern Syria- Perhaps a trial run?
"Quite the northern locale strike into Syrian territory for Israel- But what else can be expected of Israel? Other then brazen war making activity?
And surely the US was completely aware and on board with this attack, right before the Helsinki summit. I've no doubt of that!"
Times of Israel- Syrian Air Defences Placed on High Alert
Syrian air defenses were placed on high alert Monday, according to a report in the pro-regime news site Al Masdar.
The Syrian air defenses have been placed on highest alert across the country, pro-government reporters claimed this afternoon.
These reports seem to have some truth behind them because a source at the Mezzeh Airbase said that they have been ordered to make preparations for a possible attack on Damascus.
The reason for placing the air defenses on the highest alert was not revealed; however, it is believed to be due to the potential threat of a U.S. strike on the capital or its surrounding area.
A source told the newspaper that the Mazzeh airbase was preparing to defend against a possible US missile attack on Damascus.
Earlier in the day a top Russian official said the US was bolstering its military forces in the Middle East in preparation for a strike against Syrian government forces, according to the Russian news agency TASS.
