WASHINGTON- US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is "guardedly optimistic" that his chamber next week will approve limited military strikes against Syria, a Democratic aide said on Thursday.

The aide said the first Senate vote on a proposed use-of-force resolution requested by President Barack Obama will likely be held on Wednesday to overcome an anticipated Republican procedural roadblock.
