US To Hit Russia With Sanctions Over Support For Assad

However, Trump "seemed to believe that other individual countries would largely equal the United States, was furious that his administration was being portrayed in the media as taking by far the toughest stance on Russian Federation", while he had said that Washington would not take the lead and would only match the number of expulsions.

Assad denies he has used chemical weapons, and the US has yet to present evidence of what it says led to the allied action: a chlorine gas attack on civilians in Douma on April 7 that killed more than 40 people.

"We are likely to get a sell-off this week as the extent of the Syrian strikes have been muted and, in general, calmer nerves prevail in Washington", she said. "Secretary Mnuchin will be announcing those on Monday, if he hasn't already".

Gold and oil will extend their gains on Monday, albeit modestly, when the markets open for the first time since Western powers launched a missile attack on Syria but equities and bonds are unlikely to suffer big losses unless the West strikes again or Russian Federation retaliates.

On Friday night, the United States, France, and the United Kingdom launched strikes on a number of targets in Syria in response to the alleged chemical incident in the Damascus' suburb of Duma.

"I spoke to the president this morning and he said, "if the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded", she said.

A French defense minister seemed to contradict Dunford's assertion early Saturday morning, saying Russian Federation was warned ahead of time, the Associated Press reported.

In a televised interview Sunday night, French President Emmanuel Macron said the U.S., France and Britain had "full worldwide legitimacy to intervene" because they had gotten evidence the Syrian government used chemical weapons against its own people and the airstrikes were enforcing global humanitarian law.

U.S. Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, director of the Joint Staff at the Pentagon, said the allied airstrikes "took out the heart" of Assad's chemical weapons arsenal.

"With the political and diplomatic actions that we're taking now, we wanted [Syria's] 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.

However, the White House said Mr Trump still wants United States forces to withdraw from the region as soon as possible.

President Macron said France wanted to involve Western powers, Russian Federation and Turkey in a new diplomatic initiative to find a sustainable political solution in Syria.

Post-strike statements from Western capitals suggest they want to lower the tension. Russian Federation claims that 71 of 103 missiles fired were shot down, although the Pentagon says that is not true. What happens next, she said, is up to Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies. Moscow has also tempered its tone, saying only that "there will be consequences".

A team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is in Syria to investigate the Douma incident and was expected to visit the town.
