President Trump: Media Seizing on His Use of 'Mission Accomplished'

"We have to be very conscious of the fact that we can't allow even the smallest use of chemical weapons", Ms. Haley said on "Fox News Sunday."That's why you saw the president strike this past weekend, that's why you saw him expel 60 Russian spies after the attack in Salisbury".

The most recent destruction in Syria is the aftermath of the USA who, along with its allies France and the United Kingdom, bombed three empty facilities all related to Syria's chemical weapons.

Putin called the military action a violation of the UN Charter and warned that if it continues, "it will inevitably entail chaos in worldwide relations", according to the statement.

Trump condemned Obama for declaring that Syria's use of chemical weapons would cross a "red line" for the United States and he said it made Obama look weak when he didn't follow through with a military strike after Assad used deadly gases against civilians.

The United States, the United Kingdom, and France conducted air strikes against Syria on April 14 in response to a suspected chemical attack by the Syrian government that killed dozens of people last week.

Rescuers and medics have said the alleged attack killed more than 40 people, but Damascus and Moscow have dismissed the reports as "fabrications".

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad described USA -led air strikes against the country as an act of aggression during a meeting with Russian lawmakers Sunday. The military said there were three targets: the Barzah chemical weapons research and development site in the Damascus area, a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs and a chemical weapons "bunker" a few miles from the second target.

Asked whether there will be further strikes, Ms. Haley said that's "totally up to" Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

But she will say the UK joined the United States and France in co-ordinated strikes following the chemical weapons attack in Douma to "alleviate further humanitarian suffering".

So far, officials say, two factors make them wonder whether the facilities were still central to Syria's program. We, likewise, commend the fearless stand of countries which are friendly to the Syria and its people.

European Union foreign ministers will discuss the air strikes in Luxembourg on Monday, amid concerns by some member states about the legality of the operation without United Nations approval, and about the categorical attribution of responsibility to Syria ahead of reports from the inspectors on the ground.

The chemical attack in Douma had been the final stroke in a prolonged bombardment aimed at crushing the rebellion in eastern Ghouta, the last stronghold near Damascus of rebels fighting Assad's regime.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said the US military had kept its strikes limited because it knew a wider attack would spark retaliation from Damascus and its allies and inflame the region. And so I think everyone is going to feel it at this point.

Russian agencies quoted the lawmakers as saying that Assad was in a "good mood", had praised the Soviet-era air defence systems Syria used to repel the Western attacks and had accepted an invitation to visit Russia at an unspecified time.

The OPCW had said it would continue to deploy to Damascus despite the strikes on the Syrian regime's installations in the early hours of Saturday morning.

"For we can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised - either within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom or elsewhere".
