Mrs. Sanders aid USA policy in Syria "hasn't changed". "Mission Accomplished!" he declared.

Following weekend missile strikes on Syria by the US, France and Britain, Russia traded accusations with Western nations on Monday, dismissing as "a blatant lie" accusations that Moscow was hindering the investigation in Douma. The U.N. Security Council was meeting at Moscow's request.

Later Saturday, President Bashar al-Assad's army announced it had retaken the whole of the region east of Damascus from rebels after an nearly two-month military assault. The Pentagon said there were three targets: a 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.

Syria and its main allies Iran and Russian Federation blamed Israel for that attack.

"All weapons hit their targets close to the designated time on target", Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, the Joint Staff director, told the press on Saturday.

The UN security council will meet on Monday to discuss the call for a wider push to eliminate the covert Syrian government stockpiles, placing pressure on Russian Federation to stop protecting the Assad regime from a UN inquiry into its use of chemical weapons.

"As of now, we're not aware of any civilian casualties", McKenzie said, noting all of the allied missiles had successfully reached their targets.

-French attack has not only "consolidated the peoples of Russian Federation and Syria, but all the nations, which are guided by the norms of worldwide law", Sablin said.

He told the BBC the strikes in Syria were meant to signal that "enough is enough" and their "primary goal is to say no to the use of barbaric chemical weapons". He said the inspectors can not access the site because it needs permission from United Nations security experts. I support President Trump's limited action to target chemical weapons facilities and hold this brutal regime accountable.

Syrian President Bashar Assad praised the quality of Soviet-made air defense systems that he argues resulted in the failiure of the USA, U.K., and French bombing attack inSyria Saturday, Russian lawmakers said after a meeting with the Syrian president in Damascus Sunday. "In addition, we expect our regional allies and partners to take greater responsibility both militarily and financially for securing the region".

Russian military police were ready to help protect the OPCW experts on their visit to Douma, said Major General Yuri Yevtushenko of the Russian military's Reconciliation Centre in Syria. He criticized the US and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for global inspectors to visit the area.

Prime Minister Theresa May said there was "no practicable alternative to the use of force" to deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime.

Russia's response thus far has been a mixture of indignation and threatening posturings.

The United States, France and Britain early Saturday targeted what they said were chemical weapon sites after an alleged toxic attack on Eastern Ghouta on April 7. The U.S. says it suspects that sarin gas also was used.

The airstrikes are but the latest in a long line of United States interventions in the Syrian civil war. It said there were no indications any of the chemical agents had been released into the air as a result of the strikes.

But Russia and Syria begged to differ, saying missile defenses took out 71 of the 105 missiles fired.

Trump discussed three military options for Syria last week with his revamped national security team, led by Bush-era hawk John Bolton, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday, citing sources familiar with White House decision-making. But the description from an ally put things differently.
