Thousands of Syrian Demonstrators Condemn US Aggression

"We wanted their friends Iran and Russian Federation to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well", Haley said. And, Hill believes this missile attack adds to the mess which includes strained relations with Russian Federation as it backs al-Assad.

Russian leader Vladimir Putin reaffirmed the Kremlin's skepticism about the allies' Douma claim, saying Russian military experts had found no trace of the attack.

Some in the Syrian community believe it was a small positive step in the right direction while others believe it will only cause more problems for the US and American troops in Syria.

US President Donald Trump on Sunday defended his having hailed a US and allied strike in Syria as "Mission Accomplished".

USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announced on Sunday that the U.S. will imminently impose a new rounds of sanctions on Russian Federation.

The nighttime Syria assault was carefully limited to minimize civilian casualties and avoid direct conflict with Syria's key ally, Russia, but confusion arose over the extent to which Washington warned Moscow in advance.

"Assad knew that Russian Federation had its back, Assad knew that Russian Federation would cover for them at the United Nations, and Assad got reckless, and he used it in a way that was far more aggressive", Haley said on "Fox News Sunday".

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime was suspected of orchestrating a chlorine attack, which occurred on April 7.

Assad didn't comment on calls by the US State Department to declare alleged Syrian stockpiles of chemical weapons during the meeting.

Speaking to the BBC, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that Western powers had no plans for further missile strikes, though they would assess their options if Damascus used chemical weapons again.

In late March, Trump made a surprise announcement, saying the USA would withdraw from Syria in the near future.

"It's illegal because he didn't come and ask permission", he said. Russian Federation has vetoed at least six resolutions in the United Nations Security Council regarding chemical weapons. "If they knew they would care".

Muzna Dureid, a Syrian who came to Montreal a year and a half ago, agrees that Friday's strikes don't go far enough in putting pressure on the Assad government.

"This was very strong attack on the chemical weapons program". He said Syria's air defenses were ineffective and that numerous more than 40 surface-to-air missiles fired by the Syrians were launched after the allied attack was over.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in an interview in Sunday's Journal Du Dimanche newspaper that "we should join our efforts to promote a political process in Syria that would allow a way out of the crisis".

Washington described the strike targets as a centre near Damascus for the research, development, production and testing of chemical and biological weapons; a chemical weapons storage site near the city of Homs; and another site near Homs that stored chemical weapons equipment and housed a command post.
