Russia's ambassador, Vasily A. Nebenzia, said the three Western powers had carried out "aggression against a sovereign state, which is on the front lines of the fight against terrorism", without proof that chemical weapons had been used, much less by forces overseen by President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, Russia's ally.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, said Sunday that the United States will place more sanctions on Russian Federation this week related to its support for Syria's chemical weapons program.

U.S. President Donald Trump praised the military strike on Syria as a "perfectly executed" operation and said it was aimed at ending the use of such weapons of mass destruction.

London and Washington have played down the prospect of further military action against Syria but Nikki Haley, the United States ambassador to the United Nations, said there would be fresh sanctions against Russian companies which have helped the Assad regime's chemical weapons programme.

She added: "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line".

"Last night, US and allied forces launched precision air strikes against the Syrian regime in response to its use of chemical weapons against innocent civilians".

She further said that chemical weapons are so heinous that the entire community has agreed to ban it.

An anonymous source told Channel Two, "the attack will allow the Americans to say, "We did what was necessary" and leave Syria".

The Pentagon says Syria launched 40 surface-to-air missiles in response to the coalition attack.

- US President Donald Trump condemned Syria's two main allies, Russian Federation and Iran, for supporting "murderous dictators".

"The coalition strike in Syria is a measured response to Assad's barbaric use of chemical weapons".

According to USA officials, the operation comprised three United States destroyers, a French frigate and a U.S. submarine.

Russia, Assad's strongest ally, has used its veto power as many as 12 times to block United Nations action against Syria.

Dunford said the first targeted was a scientific research center in the Damascus area. He said the targets selected by U.S., British and French officials were meant to minimize civilian casualties. "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message, and our hope is that they listen to it", she told CBS News on Sunday. "The American films have shown since the 1990s that Russian-made weapons are 'backward.' However, today we can see who is really lagging behind", Russian lawmaker Dmitry Sablin quoted Assad as saying.

French President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement that a target of the strike was the Syrian government's "clandestine chemical arsenal".

He did not rule out sarin use.
