Haley: US to impose new Russia sanctions over Syria

These new sanctions "will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] and chemical weapons use", she said.

She said: "We can not stand by and let Russian Federation trash every global norm and allow use of chemical weapons to go unanswered".

"So I think everyone is going to be feeling it at this point". "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message, and our hope is that they listen to it".

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says it is "clear to Canada" that the Assad regime is responsible for a suspected chemical-weapons attack in Syria that left more than 40 people dead and 500 injured.

"With the political and diplomatic actions that we're taking now, 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", she said. The U.S. and its allies accused Assad's forces of using chemical weapons, a claim Syria and Russian Federation have rejected.

Sen. Joe Donnelly, one of the most vulnerable Democrat running in 2018, said in a statement that he supports the "international military response, which demonstrates that there are consequences for using chemical weapons on innocent civilians". Chlorine, in contrast, has been used more widely in Syria's conflict without past U.S. reprisals and is far easier to find and weaponize, experts say.

Macron and other Western leaders have called for a diplomatic offensive after the strikes, aiming to end a conflict that has killed more than 350,000 people and displaced half of Syria´s population. "This was not muscle flexing".

Those strikes, coordinated with France and Britain, damaged three facilities controlled by the Syrian regime of dictator Bashar al-Assad.

More than 350,000 people have been killed in Syria's war since it started in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-government protests.

The president wrote "Mission Accomplished!" in regards to the strikes coordinated by the USA, the United Kingdom and France against Syrian targets.

Ms Deeb suggests: "They were faking the symptoms in the video, and the Syrian army found the jihadists' chemical weapons factories when they entered Ghouta". "Yes, it is all of our goal to see American troops come home".

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

Strip away the bravado and the claims that 70 per cent of incoming missiles were destroyed: Even after a week's notice, the USA still took out exactly what it said it wanted to, when it wanted to. But the president said he "felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back".

"We convinced him it was necessary to stay", the French leader added. "If you ever call me again I'm going to tell you I'm ashamed of you", Jones said.

Sen. Tim Kaine, also appearing on "Face the Nation", slammed the air strikes as illegal and reckless without approval from Congress. The military said there were three targets: the Barzah chemical weapons research and development site in the Damascus area, a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs and a chemical weapons "bunker" a few miles from the second target.
