Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said Sunday that the United States will place more sanctions on Russian Federation this week related to its support for Syria's chemical weapons program.

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".

President Donald Trump has warned Syria's government the United States is "locked and loaded" to strike again if it carries out new chemical attacks.

President Donald Trump has expressed his intention to pull all U.S. forces out of Syria in the near future.

"A large body of information indicates that the Syrian regime used chemical weapons", US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the UN Security Council on Saturday.

Russian Federation said that the Western powers "cynically" carried out military action hours before a team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was set to begin an investigation into the suspected chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta that sparked the intervention by the USA and its allies.

The Him Shinshar chemical weapons bunker facility, located more than 4 miles (7 km) from the storage facility, was struck by seven Scout missiles.

Celebrating his crushing victory over rebels in Douma, Eastern Ghouta, where the suspected chemical attack took place, Assad was said to be in a "good mood" today.


"None of our aircraft or missiles involved in this operation were successfully engaged by Syrian air defenses, and we have no indication that Russian air defense systems were deployed", McKenzie said.

Russia's demand for condemnation and an immediate halt to "aggression" and "any further use of force" by the U.S., Britain and France got support from only two other countries on the 15-member council China and Bolivia.

The U.S. and its allies on Friday ordered "precision strikes" on targets in Syria believed to be associated with the country's chemical weapons arsenal.

One site hit by the barrage of missiles was the Bazrah Research Center, a scientific research center on the outskirts of Damascus.

"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. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "will still continue to bomb his people, to gas his people".

With the new attack on Syria, things appear headed in the opposite direction. "We have to be conscious of the fact that we can't allow even the smallest use of chemical weapons".

He did not rule out sarin use.
