Russian Federation slams joint airstrikes in Syria

Russia has questioned the rationale for US air strikes on Syria which have lit up the Damascus sky

"Senate Armed Service Committee Chairman John McCain is applauding the airstrikes but says "they alone will not achieve United States objectives in the Middle East".

Following the USA -led strikes, however, "we consider it possible to return to examination of this issue not only in regard to Syria but to other countries as well", Rudskoi said.

Overnight, US, British and French forces launched more than 100 missiles from ships and manned aircraft, targeting three of Syria's main chemical weapons facilities.

The US, France, and Britain announced a joint operation against Syria's government, a week after a suspected chemical attack outside the capital Damascus left more than 40 people dead.

Russia's ambassador to the United States says there will be consequences for the military strikes, adding that it was not acceptable to insult Russia's president.

Ambassador Antonov said: "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible".
