Russian Federation to face new sanctions over Syria: Nikki Hayley

It is one of at least three sites that have been consistently referenced in association with Syria's chemical weapons program, including Masyaf and Dummar, also known as Jamraya, both reported to have been hit by Israeli strikes past year.

Haley also said the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria before three goals have been accomplished: defeating Islamic State militants, ensuring chemical weapons will not be used and maintaining the ability to watch Iran.

The official added that "while the available information is much greater on the chlorine use, we do have significant information that also points to sarin use" in the attack.

"We say enough with death, enough with killing civilians", said Hani Atassi, president of the Syrian American Council chapter in Chicago.

The United States has warned Syria's government that it is "locked and loaded" to strike again if Damascus carries out chemical attacks. "The United States of America will not allow the Assad regime to continue using chemical weapons". Russian Federation has vetoed at least six resolutions in the United Nations Security Council regarding chemical weapons.

"In the USA administration there are specific people who it is possible to talk with", said Ermakov, head of the ministry's Department for Non-proliferation and Arms Control.

United Nations chemical weapons inspectors who arrived in Syria at the weekend have promised to investigate what happened in Douma despite the air strikes against chemical weapons installations.

British Foreign Secretary (Minister) Boris Johnson defended Prime Minister Theresa May's decision to take part in the attack, saying it was to deter further use of chemical weapons.

Syria's air defense units shot down most of the air-to-surface missiles fired by the US-led military operation, Russia's Defence Ministry said.

The Kremlin said in a statement that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani spoke by phone and agreed that the Western airstrikes were an "illegal action. adversely impacting prospects for political settlement in Syria".

Meanwhile, the Syrian Army announced on April 14 that eastern Ghouta, the region near Damascus where Douma is situated, had been cleared of the last rebel fighters and was fully retaken.

McCain said the message to Assad must be that the cost of using chemical weapons is worse than any perceived benefit.

"We all know our work in Syria is not done", she told Fox News' "Fox News Sunday".

Earlier, US President Donald Trump stated that he wants to get US troops out of Syria relatively soon, but that they would have to stay a little longer to helpfully defeat the Daesh terrorist group there.

Washington described the strike targets as a centre near Damascus for the research, development, production and testing of chemical and biological weapons; a chemical weapons storage site near the city of Homs; and another site near Homs that stored chemical weapons equipment and housed a command post.
