'Consequences' for Syria strike: Russian Federation

Our action will degrade the Syrian regime's chemical weapons use: Statement by Ambassador Karen Pierce, UK

No additional strikes against the Assad regime were planned for the time being, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said, following Dunford's comments.

"But should the United States and our allies decide to act in Syria, it will be in defense of a principle on which we all agree", Haley told the U.N. Security Council.

Moscow promised a response to the attack, saying its "worst apprehensions" had come true. The diplomat once again squarely pinned the blame for the alleged chemical attack in the town of Douma on the Syrian government, citing "large amount of credible reporting" on the incident. "The capital of a sovereign government, trying for years to survive under terrorist aggression, has been attacked", foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Facebook. "We warned that such actions will not remain without consequences", the report said. The bombardment was joined by Britain and France, which launched fighter jets to strike suspected chemical facilities in Homs and Damascus.

Worldwide chemical weapons experts were travelling to Syria to investigate the gas attack by government forces. Trump asked, adding the two countries are "most responsible for supporting, equipping and financing the criminal Assad regime".
