"If the Syrian regime uses this poison gas again, the United States is locked and loaded". Russian Federation and its ally Syria called the attack fabricated and said no evidence of chemical weapons use exists in Douma.

The Pentagon is backing President Donald Trump's assertion that the missile strikes on Syria were "Mission Accomplished!".

Russian Federation filed a draft resolution condemning the missile attack as a violation of worldwide law and the UN Charter, and demanding the United States and its allies cease aggression against Syria.

"We will continue to work with our global partners to further investigate the use of chemical weapons in Syria". He accused the United States, France and Britain of "demonstrating a blatant disregard for global law".

Mrs Merkel, who called the strikes "necessary and appropriate", said: "We support the fact that our American, British and French allies have taken responsibility in this way". "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line", Haley said on Saturday.

"This aggression will only make Syria and its people more determined to keep fighting and crushing terrorism in every inch of the country", Assad, in his first reaction to the strikes, told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani. The government's capture of Douma, the last town held by the rebels in eastern Ghouta, marks a major victory for Assad.

Trump blamed Assad for that attack, though some global observers have said it is hard to prove who was behind it.

The monitoring group said the source of the blast on April 14 was not immediately clear and could have been caused by an air strike or an incident.

"My view is that it's time the President seek an authorization from Congress, and it's up to congress to debate that and give some definition to what it is we're doing", said Welch.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged restraint and asked states to avoid any escalation.

Johnson also insisted that the action would not "turn the tide" of the conflict and was not about regime change.

CGTN's Alaa Ebrahim reports on the strike aftermath from Damascus.

The three allies used ships, a submarine and warplanes to launch a barrage of 105 guided missiles towards three chemical weapons facilities in Syria, officials said, including a research center on the outskirts of Damascus.

The US Department of Defense says that a chemical weapons storage facility was targeted, in addition to a chemical weapons equipment storage facility and command post. Look at all of the instances of their use of chemical weapons over the last few years, and look at the very limited target set of the USA -led attack.

Dunford clarified the difference between the strikes a year ago and yesterday is the focus on production of the weapons instead of aircraft used as a delivery method of the chemical and biological weapons.
