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 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.

"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.
