US preparing new sanctions on Russia over Syria, says Nikki Haley

US preparing new sanctions on Russia over Syria, says Nikki Haley

Barnes, who joined the protest, said he didn't believe that military attacks will solve the problem in Syria and viewed the USA military action as a disingenuous one.

The British, US and French bombings on Saturday followed an alleged chemical weapons attack on the rebel-held town of Douma on April 7. Russian military assistance since 2015 has allowed Assad to break a stalemate with the rebels, some of whom are backed by the United States.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the three countries fired over 100 cruise and air-to-surface missiles, most of which were shot down by Syrian air defense.

"The aggression is a flagrant violation of global law, a breach of the worldwide community's will, and it is doomed to fail", said state news agency SANA.

Jasmine el-Gamal, the Pentagon's Syria country director during the Obama administration, told NPR's Weekend Edition on Sunday that the strikes were successful because they showed that President Trump was following through on his commitment.

Russian Federation denounced the strikes as "aggressive actions" and called an emergency session of the UN Security Council.

Mohammad Alloush, a key member of Jaish al-Islam, said Saturday the Western strikes had not gone far enough.

Mr Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organised an insurgency that would tie down USA forces for years.

"From the point of view of the president, this was aggression and we share this position", Russia's TASS news agency quoted lawmaker Sergei Zheleznyak as saying after the meeting with Assad.

In the wake of last weekend's attack, some USA officials advocated a larger strike than the limited action Trump ordered in April 2017, also in response to suspected chemical weapons use.

Speaking to the BBC, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that Western powers had no plans for further missile strikes, though they would assess their options if Damascus used chemical weapons again.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that the strikes would have "a destructive effect on the entire system of global relations".

Putin told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, also an Assad ally, that any new Western strikes in Syria would provoke "chaos in global relations".

Guterres said the Security Council has primary responsibility for the maintenance of global peace and security and called on the members of the Security Council to unite and exercise that responsibility.

The strikes, launched from US bomber jets, warships, and an attack submarine along with French and British fighter jets, ratcheted up tensions in the multi-sided conflict.

McKenzie said the strike would "set the Syrian chemical weapons program back for years", adding cautiously: "I'm not going to say that they're going to be unable to conduct a chemical attack in the future".

The Pentagon also said that it was not aware of any civilian causalities at the time.

"I suspect, however, they'll think long and hard about it", he said.

In response, the United States launched missiles toward targets of the Syrian Air Force. The US intervention past year had effectively no impact on the war.
