Nikki Haley: More US Sanctions Against Russia Coming Monday

But US Ambassador to the United Nationals Nikki Haley has said her country is "locked and loaded" to strike Syria again if more such attacks continue. There will be more.

The French launched 12 cruise missiles using Mirage and Rafale fighter jets while the U.S. deployed B-1B Lancer bombers.

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down", she said. He also called for a "war powers act" that would force the British government to seek parliamentary approval for future military action. "Hopefully he's gotten the message".

"My heart goes out to the innocent Syrians who will suffer from this", said a resident of NY city.

Haley, in her Fox News interview, also defended its use as a military term, rather than as a broader political statement.

In his televised address from the White House on Friday evening, Trump said the US was prepared to keep up the economic, diplomatic and military pressure on Assad until he ends what Trump called a criminal pattern of killing his own people with internationally banned chemical weapons.

Russian president Vladimir Putin has denounced the missile strikes by the US, France and the United Kingdom as an "act of aggression" that would exacerbate the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria.

In the days leading up to the US -led airstrike, both Syria and Russian Federation said that reports of the chemical attack were fabricated.

"I want to start rebuilding our nation", Trump said.

"We're trying to stop the murder of innocent people", Defense Secretary James Mattis told the House Armed Services Committee this week.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said sidelining parliament was "a serious mistake", while leader of the Green Party Caroline Lucas accused May of timing the strikes to "avoid a debate in parliament", which she described as "outrageous".

Johnson said Britain would take every possible precaution to defend against any Russian cyber attacks but that London would keep talking to Moscow as it did not "relish" their hard relationship. "We wanted their friends Iran and Russian Federation to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well".

USA military officials said an initial assessment showed every one of the missiles struck its target on Saturday, reducing the facilities to rubble while avoiding any civilian casualties.

Military strikes hit three targets: a warfare technology center and two chemical weapons facilities.

They have said the attack in Douma, in the Eastern Ghouta area near the capital, Damascus, was staged.

The US, UK and France then circulated a new draft resolution to Security Council members, calling for an independent investigation into Syria's alleged use of chemical weapons.

A second USA official said Britain, France and the US are confident that the inspectors' eventual report will confirm their findings that chlorine was used, likely in conjunction with sarin. But late Saturday, senior administration officials called the evidence "incontrovertible".

Asked about Trump's "Mission Accomplished" assertion, White said it pointed to the successful targeting of three Syrian chemical weapons sites.

According to Lt Gen Kenneth McKenzie, who directs the USA military's joint staff, 76 missiles were fired at the research centre in the Syrian capital, comprising 57 Tomahawk cruise missiles and 19 air-to-surface missiles.

Syrian state media quoted Assad as telling the visiting Russian politicians that allied forced behind the strikes had waged a campaign of "lies and misinformation" against Russia and Syria.
