Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Sunday that the USA would launch new missile strikes against his regime if he carries out another chemical weapons attack.

President Trump addressed the nation from the White House on Friday night, local time, saying he had given the order for the USA military - in conjunction with Britain and France - to launch airstrikes on Syria.

"Russia condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack against Syria, where Russian military personnel are assisting the legitimate government in its counterterrorism efforts", Putin said in the statement.

Haley's comments come days after the US, in partnership with France and the United Kingdom, launched over 100 missiles at three targets in Syria.

Father Sabbagh says despite Syrians being frustrated about the bombings, those that attacked Syria should not expect any retaliation from naturalized Syrians.

"And they were the result of the regime and Russia's failure to live up to their global commitments to remove all chemical weapons from Syria", said Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to United Nations.

Syria agreed in 2013 to give up its chemical weapons after a nerve gas attack killed hundreds of people in Douma.

- During telephone conversations on Saturday afternoon Theresa May, Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron agreed the military strikes in Syria "had been a success". America's defence secretary, Jim Mattis, who urged caution in the lead-up to the attack, said: "We were not out to expand this; we were very precise and proportionate".

Reports say US Tomahawk missiles used to target Syria, as United Kingdom and France deploy Tornado, Mirage and Rafale jets.

Haley also repeated her comment Saturday, at an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council, that the us remains "locked and loaded".

The rebels in the town surrendered the day after the alleged chemical attack, and Russian troops have since been overseeing an evacuation deal under which rebels and anti-government activists were bussed to rebel-held areas in northern Syria.

Johnson added there was no proposal in place for further attacks, but if Assad's regime were to repeat chemical attacks "clearly, with allies, we would study what the options were".

The move signalled the West's resolve to return to diplomacy after a one-night military operation that hit sites Western officials said were linked to Syria's chemical weapons program.

The attack was twice as big as one launched by America previous year, which failed to deter Mr Assad. "We can't allow even the smallest use of chemical weapons".

The Syrian Foreign Ministry has condemned the US -led attack, saying it violated the global law and the UN Charter, Syrian state news agency SANA reported on Saturday. The third target was the Barzah Research Center, a military facility located near Damascus that conducted research, development, production and testing of chemical and biological warfare technology.
