White House Says It is 'Evaluating' New Sanctions Against Russia

"No Syrian weapons had any affect on anything we did", the Pentagon said Saturday morning.

President Trump hailed the success of the USA -led missiles strikes on Syria Monday, boasting that the Russian military was unable to shoot down even one of the allies' missiles last weekend.

"Ten days ago, President Trump was saying that the United States would disengage from Syria", Macron said Sunday night. "We convinced him to remain".

About 45 human rights and aid groups urged U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres on Friday to appoint a team of independent investigators to determine blame for toxic gas attacks in Syria.

The joint US-French-British strike on three alleged chemical weapons facilities in the vicinity of Damascus and Homs were carried out, according to US Secretary of Defense James Mattis, in order to defend "vital American interests". US Vice President Mike Pence warned Assad on Saturday against using chemical weapons again.

"The Assad regime's attack on innocent Syrians in Douma, Syria on April 7 is horrifying and tragic, and it demanded an immediate response", Chief Pentagon Spokeswoman Dana White said. The US ambassador in Moscow, John Huntsman, said in a video, "Before we took action, the United States communicated with" Russia to "reduce the danger of any Russian or civilian casualties". "They will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use".

"Everyone is going to feel it at this point", Haley said, warning of consequences for Assad's foreign allies. "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message, and our hope is that they listen to it".

Soon after that, Syrian anti-government activists, including the White Helmets, claimed Assad launched a chemical attack that killed and injured dozens of civilians in Douma, a suburb of Damascus that he was close to decisively re-taking from militants. "In the USA administration there are specific people who it is possible to talk with".

Russian MPs met with Assad on Sunday after the United States, France and Britain launched missile strikes on Syria in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack a week ago.

The Trump administration reportedly wants to build an Arab army to replace U.S. troops in Syria.

A spokesperson for the Élysée Palace did not immediately return several requests for further comment.

"The strikes went to the very heart of the enterprise, to research, development [and] storage", White said.

Soussan reiterated a pledge by the Syrian government that the chemical experts would be allow to investigate unimpeded.

"They heard it", said Mercho, "they were scared".

"We clearly need a war powers act in this country to transform a now broken convention into a legal obligation", the Labour leader said. Macron said in an interview broadcast by BFM TV, RMC radio and Mediapart online news that he had convinced Trump to focus on the chemical weapons sites.
