Over 100 missiles fired at Syria, 'significant number' intercepted: Moscow

Russia's armed forces are backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. "We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", the USA president said in a televised address. "Over the past seven years, we've witnessed all kinds of deaths".

Later Sunday, Haley told CBS' "Face the Nation " that the US will be imposing more economic sanctions on Russian Federation for its support of Assad and his apparent use of chemical weapons.

Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg tweeted a message of support and said those who use chemical weapons "must be held accountable".

As Mohammed Alsaleh helped guide former Syrian refugees through the blood donation process at a clinic in Vancouver Saturday morning, discussions in the room often circled back to news of US -led airstrikes in Syria the night before. But in the end, he said the only good thing was that there were no civilian casualties.

"We are going to be part of a number of protests coming up", said Aram Bowen, an organizer of the Philadelphia Rojava Solidarity Network, which sympathizes with the independent administration that governs much of northwest Syria, led by members of that country's Kurdish minority.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced the military action from the White House, saying the three allies had "marshalled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality". Thus, this attack looks much more like it was meant only to degrade Syrian chemical weapons themselves.

Nikki Haley said: "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line".

"A perfectly executed strike", Trump said on Twitter, even as top Pentagon officials said they still were assessing the damage. Syrian time, about 9 p.m.

People are pointing out parallels between Trump's statement and when former President George W. Bush stood in front of a banner that read, "Mission Accomplished", just six weeks after the USA invaded Iraq in 2003. In actuality, the war was far from over, and would stretch on for years. "These are the very people who need our support".

Guterres emphasised that there is no military solution to the Syrian crisis and the solution must be "political".

According to Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal, Islamabad "condemns the use of chemical weapons anywhere by anyone".

The French president said he was working closely with the US on a possible response. "Now, in Damascus, the regime is actually celebrating their victory".

One official cautioned, however, that United States intelligence assessments indicate Assad still has chemical weapons in Syria. "It was just a media stunt". I wanted for this country to have a democratic system, less corruption, for the next generation to live in dignity and not be fearful. "All that we want is for the killing to stop".
