Trump defends 'mission accomplished' after strike on Syria

Shvytkin also said that the military action by France, Britain and the United States in Syria does not benefit the effort to build constructive relations with Moscow.

The Russian government continues to reject claims by the West that the Syrian government conducted chemical weapons attacks in Douma and in Khan Sheikhoun a year ago.

Ms Haley also made it clear that the United States will not be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying USA involvement there "is not done". It might seem Washington struck just to save face.

Alexander Shumilin, director of the Center for the Analysis of Middle East Conflicts at the Institute for USA and Canadian Studies, also said that a military response was not on the cards.

But the United Kingdom envoy to the OPCW said in a tweet Monday that "Russia and Syria have not yet allowed access to Douma".

The Defense Officials explained that the offensive was aimed at three specific targets: a chemical weapons research facility, a storage facility, and a facility that housed both chemical weapon production equipment and a command element.

He also criticized the USA and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for inspectors from the International Chemical Weapons Watchdog to visit the area.

"The use of chemical weapons by anyone, anywhere, under any circumstances is illegal and utterly reprehensible", Mr Turnbull said.

And she said President Donald Trump told her Saturday morning that if the Syrian regime uses poisonous gas again "the United States is locked and loaded" to strike again.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has condemned the airstrikes as "an act of aggression", the country's representative informed the Council.

Ms Haley said the three USA goals for accomplishing its mission are making sure chemical weapons are not used in a way that could harm U.S. national interests; that the Islamic State group is defeated; and that there is a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing.

"A pre-designed scenario is being implemented", Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said on Twitter.

"Sentiment, still, will be tempered awaiting the Kremlin's response to the US-led strike in Syria, to USA sanctions of last week and potential new sanctions".

The U.S. -led operation won broad Western support.

Asked about Trump's "Mission Accomplished" assertion, White said it pointed to the successful targeting of three Syrian chemical weapons sites.

Common Joseph Dunford, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Employees, advised reporters at a Pentagon briefing: "Necessary infrastructure was destroyed which is able to lead to a setback for the Syrian regime". Speaking from rebel-held northern Syria, Abdulrazek told The Associated Press there were perhaps 50 warehouses in Syria that stored chemical weapons before the program was dismantled in 2013.

One of the sites struck on Saturday, the Barzeh research and development center, has always been known to American intelligence officials and to worldwide inspectors, according to a senior intelligence official.

Syrian air defense units downed 71 out of 103 missiles launched by the USA and its allies, it said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin stated on Saturday that the strikes had been carried out in violation of norms and principles of the global law.

Talking to reporters the morning after, the Prime Minister stated the army strikes on Syria have been "restricted and focused" and created to degrade the Syrian regime's capability to develop and use chemical weapons.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May shared a similar sentiment in her public address, saying the strikes have not escalated tensions in the region and that everything had been done "to prevent civilian casualties". "I think that's the right approach", Haley added.
