  • Assad calls Syria air strikes act of 'American aggression'

Also Sunday, Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on the phone, and they agreed that the airstrike on Syria seriously damages the prospects for a political settlement in the country.

Putin said such actions will inevitably lead to "chaos" in worldwide relations, according to a readout released by the Kremlin.

"Putin stressed that if such actions, committed in violation of the UN Charter, continue, it will inevitably lead to chaos in global relations", RIA added.

Trump resurrected the phrase in a tweet Saturday after the strikes launched by US, British and French forces in response to an alleged chemical attack by the Syrian regime.

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley has said sanctions will be announced on Monday aimed at companies "that were dealing with equipment" related to Bashar al-Assad's alleged chemical weapons use.

The U.S., France and Britain launched dozens of airstrikes early Saturday at sites they said were linked to a chemical weapons program.

The strikes came after the Assad regime was accused of carrying out a chemical attack in Syria's Douma, which killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.

Right now there are 2,000 American troops in Syria.

French President Emmanuel Macron insisted that "we have not not declared war on the regime of Bashar al-Assad".

The Ambassador said a "pre-designed scenario" was being implemented in response to the strikes which the U.S. was a "one-time shot" targeting Syria's chemical weapons program. "We have not denied the team any request for it to go to Douma", U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said. "We successfully hit every target", White said. He noted that Moscow so far has heeded Western requests not to provide the missiles to Damascus, but said it may now reconsider.

The strike on President Bashar Assad's chemical weapons facilities was the price Syria paid for using chemical weapons on its citizens.

Glass notes that Syria was Russia's only Arab ally when the bloody Syrian civil war began seven years ago.

Syrian media, Russian and Syrian officials have sought to play down the impact of the airstrikes, saying the Syrian air defenses intercepted most of the missiles.

Responding to criticism that Trump last month somehow encouraged Assad to use chlorine bombs against his how people by indicating that he wanted 2,000 USA troops in Syria to withdraw, Haley said the president has made it clear soldiers will remain until the job is finished.

Speaking to the BBC, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that Western powers had no plans for further missile strikes, though they would assess their options if Damascus used chemical weapons again.

"I suspect he continues to brutally defeat the rebels and the people living in rebel areas and reasserts control over Syria", Piazza said.

It said no deaths from mechanical injuries were visible and all symptoms were characteristic of a chemical weapons attack, particularly choking agents and organophosphorus agents or hydrocyanic acid.

"The fact [Mr Assad] was making this more normal and that Russian Federation was covering this up, all that has got to stop".

Britain and its allies have since the strikes renewed diplomatic efforts at the United Nations, circulating a joint draft resolution at the Security Council calling for an investigation into chemical weapons attacks in Syria.
