Led strikes on IS Syria prison kill 57: monitor

Russian Federation said earlier this month that it had killed about 180 Daesh militants, including two field commanders, in June 6 and 8 air strikes on Deir Ezzor.

Islamic State is believed to have moved most of its leaders to al-Mayadeen in Syria's Euphrates Valley, south-east of the group's besieged capital Raqqa, two U.S. intelligence officials have said.

Reporters traveling in Germany with the USA defence secretary, James Mattis, were told that the Pentagon was prepared to take action after activity was seen at the Shayrat base similar to the pattern that preceded the April gas attack on Khan Sheikhoun, which killed at least 80 people.

He said the new tactic might be a result of repeated USA -led coalition airstrikes that have wiped out tens of IS fighters' gatherings.

'If, however, Mr. Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price, ' it said. "This mission was meticulously planned and executed to reduce the risk of collateral damage and potential harm to non-combatants".

Mattis said the USA has made it clear all along that, "we're going to equip them for the fight".

Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said 222 civilians, including 84 children, were killed in the largely Islamic State group-held province of Deir Ezzor.

Brexit talks begin in Brussels
We want to find the best solution for them and their families, "said Michel Barnier , the EU's chief negotiator for Brexit ". Indices wise, both the FTSE 100 and the DAX 30 paid little attention to the talks and maintained their bullish trend.

If the conditions that provided fertile ground for ISIS to usurp territory in Iraq and Syria in 2014 do not improve for the local population, ISIS' anti-Western/anti-Shi'ite narratives will likely retain their appeal among Iraqi and Syrian Sunnis who find themselves increasingly vulnerable to the forces fighting ISIS.

The coalition said it had carried out strikes on known IS targets in the town on Sunday and Monday - the day the Observatory said the prison was hit, killing 57 people.

"Our goal is always for zero civilian casualties", the statement said.

The White House on Monday accused Assad's regime of preparing a potential chemical attack and said it would pay a "heavy price", prompting criticism from regime allies Russian Federation and Iran.

Spicer added the activities were similar to preparations taken before an April 2017 attack that killed dozens of men, women and children. It will require rigorous communication through the several channels that the United States and Russian Federation have established to avoid getting tangled in Syria's civil war.

Mattis did not address the nature of the intelligence or White House warning as he flew to Europe for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting, but said the United States was not going to get pulled into the conflict between the regime and the armed opposition.
