More strikes by West on Syria would spark 'chaos,' Putin tells Rouhani

More strikes by West on Syria would spark 'chaos,' Putin tells Rouhani

She said that it is "entirely up to Assad" whether the missile attack on Syria was a one-time response to the suspected chemical attack by Syrian forces a week ago that killed more than 40 people or part of a continuing allied military effort.

U.S. President Donald Trump said in an address that the main aim of the attacks was "to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons". "There won't be anything, or anyone, even close!"

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.

The Syrians say some targeted sites didn't receive any damage.

Canada was told in advance that the U.S., Britain and France were planning to launch airstrikes against Syria, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Saturday - but was not asked to participate.

"We are confident that we have crippled Syria's chemical weapons program".

"As we bomb, these cities, I'm thinking today I haven't talked to the family that we are personally helping, but they are from Homs, Syria and the bombs last night dropped just outside of Homs".

The US will not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals are accomplished there, Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said.

"Russia strongly condemns the attack on Syria where Russian servicemen are helping the legitimate government in the war on terrorism", the Kremlin press office quoted Putin as saying, TASS reports.

At a Pentagon briefing on April 14, Lieutenant-General Kenneth McKenzie said three sites that are "fundamental components of the regime's chemical-weapons infrastructure" were struck.

Asked if this meant Mr Assad could carry on using barrel bombs and other means in the war provided he did not use chemical weapons, Mr Johnson said that was the "unhappy" effect.

In a news conference that took place on Saturday morning Pentagon Chief officials said they can't speculate on what will happen next.

Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) said the success of the missile attacks depended on whether Syria stopped using chemical weapons.

Hala spends time helping Syrian refugees who have found a new home in Tampa. A sarin attack in 2013 was also what almost brought then-President Barack Obama to strike Syria.

Haley added that the U.S. wants to ensure that chemical weapons are not used in a way that is of risk to USA interests, Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) is defeated, and Iran's actions are monitored."Be very clear, if we leave, when we leave, it will be because we know that everything is moving forward", Haley added.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry has condemned the USA -led attack, saying it violated the worldwide law and the UN Charter, Syrian state news agency SANA reported on Saturday.

Haley rejected the premise posed by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace that the US has condoned Assad's use of conventional weapons to kill rebels attacking his forces, just not chemical agents.
