Haley said the U.S.is "locked and loaded" for another missile strike if there is another chemical attack in Syria. "And we were able to repel it with Soviet missiles from the 70s", lawmaker Dmitry Sablin quoted Assad as saying, according to Russia's TASS news agency. All three participants insisted the strikes were not aimed at toppling President Bashar al-Assad or intervening in the conflict. Western powers say chemical substances, most likely chlorine and sarin, were used in the attack and killed at least 40 civilians. "We are prepared to sustain this pressure if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will".

Russian President Vladimir Putin has told Iranian Presiden Hassan Rouhani that further attacks by Western allies in Syria would inevitably lead to chaos in worldwide relations.

"Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions, carried out in violation of the UN Charter, continue, it will inevitably lead to chaos in worldwide relations", the press service of the Kremlin said.

"I'm a Syrian refugee who survived chemical weapons attacks", he said.

The Pentagon is backing President Donald Trump's assertion that the missile strikes on Syria were "Mission Accomplished!". But the military seemed less than troubled as it claimed that Syrian aerial defenses managed to shoot down most of the missiles and divert others. "Use often!" Trump wrote.

"We don't need more military action, we need all global parties to push for a political solution", said Boulad.

A coalition of ships and bombers hammered three Syrian chemical weapons sites with 105 weapons on Friday night in an escalated response created to smash the Assad regime's capacity to use chemical weapons like chlorine and sarin gas.

The measure would instruct the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to report within 30 days on whether Syria has fully disclosed its chemical weapons stockpile.

"We'll see how smart he is", Haley said. "They will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use".

"Well, they clearly failed and I think that ought to be pointed out", Hill said. He told reporters then that "sometimes it's time to come back home and we're thinking about that very seriously".

British foreign minister Boris Johnson on Sunday said the Syrian war must be allowed to "proceed as it will", after unprecedented Western strikes against the country's alleged chemical weapons facilities. Her office said she planned to tell them the strikes were "in Britain's national interest" and were carried out to stop further suffering from chemical weapons attacks.
