He said all 29 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members backed the airstrikes as a outcome of the country conducting a suspected chemical attack against its civilians last weekend.

Defense officials briefed reporters Saturday on the airstrikes carried out by the United States, Great Britain and France against Syria Friday night. The allies put the blame of the attack on Damascus, while the Syrian leadership denied any involvement in the use of chemical weapons.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the attack was a "crime" and declared Theresa May, Donald trump and Emmanuel Macron "criminals".

The United Nations Security Council also will meet at 11 a.m. (1500 GMT) on April 14 at Russia's request after U.S., British and French forces conducted air strikes on Syria involving more than 100 missiles.

'Before the strikes took place last night, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies exhausted all other possible ways to address this issue through the UN Security Council by diplomatic and political means, ' he said.

Severe weather possible Saturday
All types of severe weather will be possible this afternoon, with good indications of tornadoes being possible around the region. A high pressure system will grace the Cape Fear Region with mild to warm and mainly dry weather for most of the upcoming weekend.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation will convene an emergency meeting on Syria to discuss the USA -led airstrikes against the Assad regime in Syria, an official from the alliance told Anadolu Agency on Saturday.

It demanded that military action stop "immediately and without delay".

He said: 'Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace.

At the same time, Stoltenberg expressed his conviction that those responsible for chemical attacks must be held to account.
