I'v Proof Syria Attacked Citizens With Chemical Weapons - Macron

PARIS-French President Emmanuel Macron sharpened his stance Thursday on possible intervention in Syria, claiming that France has "proof" of a chemical attack last week and insisting that regimes must be held accountable for their abuses.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday called a top defense meeting to discuss the situation in Syria following the US -led airstrike on Syria.

"The president of the Republic said he wanted the dialogue between France and Russian Federation to continue and intensify in order to bring peace and stability to Syria", Macron's office said after the call, which came as the West ponders possible strikes on Syria in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack.

Macron said France wanted to remove the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capabilities.

On Thursday, after the United States and France made statements, Moscow urged the West to "seriously consider" the consequences of threatening Syria with retaliation for the alleged chemical attack, AFP reported.

French Mirage and Rafale fighter jets were involved in air strikes on Syria together with four frigate warships, a presidency source said on Saturday.

It appears only one cuff is on Garcia's hand and he continues to struggle with the police, as one officer warns "don't fight me". Subsequent uses of the Taser allowed the officers to place handcuffs on Garcia as they prepared to remove him from the aircraft.

France says it can prove the Syrian government used chemical weapons against civilians last weekend.

Mr Macron said he would respond "at a time of our choosing, when we judge it to be the most useful and the most effective".

Mr Macron, who tweeted a picture of himself in a meeting room with military and diplomatic advisers, said a debate about France's military involvement would take place in Parliament.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday that her country would not join a military operation in Syria. The Syrian government has denied the allegations and called the reports fake news that the West uses to justify attacking the country.

"Our teams are working closely together", he said.

"We call upon.members of the worldwide community to seriously consider the possible consequences of such accusations, threats and especially action [against Syria]", said Maria Zakharova, spokesperson for Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
