Syrian air defenses hit several incoming missiles, state-run media said.

Responding to Friday's attack on its soil, Syria has condemned "with the strongest terms" the aggression by US, Britain and France and called on the worldwide community and the UN Security Council to strongly condemn the act which can only lead to further ignite tensions and pose threat to the global peace and security. State company Rosoboronexport, which controls most of Russia's arms exports, was also subjected to sanctions.

"More bombings and the continued presence of 2,000 US troops in northeast Syria. would undoubtedly prolong the war and the suffering of Syria's people", Glass told USA TODAY. That did not mean military strikes would continue.

Russian Federation denounced the attacks as aggression against its ally, but there was no sign of an immediate military response. The U.S., he said, didn't want to oust Assad because he was a dictator - most U.S. allies in the region are led by dictators. Syrians living in Vermont are also following the situation closely.

The U.S. has vowed to also squeeze Syria's allies Russian Federation and Iran.

The big questions in Comey's badly reviewed book aren't answered like, how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (why didn't they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe's $700,000 & more? "But we did a strike a year ago for that same goal, and it was deemed a success, but the chemical weapons have continued to be used".

Directly taunting US President Donald Trump, Assad said the effectiveness of Russia's weapons in repelling the strike proved whose military was really "lagging behind".

Piazza foresees limited sanctions on Russian Federation, and he said Assad is unlikely to change his behavior with pressure from President Vladimir Putin. "Secretary Mnuchin will be announcing those on Monday, if he hasn't already".

Haley said Assad was making the use of chemical weapons "more normal and that Russian Federation was covering this up, all that has got to stop".

Dunford said the US did not coordinate targets with or notify the Russian government of the strikes, beyond normal airspace "de-confliction" communications. Those words later took on an irony as the war dragged on, and at the end if his presidency, Bush called the use of the phrase "a mistake".

Haley avoided addressing the president's claim when asked by Brennan whether it was right to call the raid an attack on the country.

"We would have preferred an alternative path, but in this case there was none", May said.

Haley said Trump told her the U.S.is "locked and loaded" should the Syrian government continue to launch chemical weapons attacks against civilians.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, the regime´s top ally, warned that fresh strikes would spark "chaos", but Washington vowed economic sanctions against Moscow rather than further military action.

In the moments after President Donald Trump ordered coordinated attacks on chemical weapons facilities in Syria, the White House sent a briefing document to members of Congress prepared by the National Security Council outlining the thinking behind its air strikes.

"Good souls will not be humiliated", Syria's presidential account tweeted after the airstrikes began.

Trump announced the airstrikes Friday night to attack Syria's chemical weapons program. In an apparent slight at Trump, who claimed this week that the new missiles would be "nice, new and smart", Moscow said some of the equipment was designed as long ago as the 1950s.

Iran also supports Hamas and Hizbollah, the two most important resistance groups against Israel.

The president responded to the outrage early on Sunday morning.

Putin told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, also an Assad ally, that any new Western strikes in Syria would provoke "chaos in worldwide relations". Russian Federation has vetoed at least six resolutions in the U.N. Security Council regarding chemical weapons. She added that the conflict must ultimately be resolved through a UN-led political process.
