USA to impose new Russian Federation sanctions over Syria - Haley

Russia Says Has Proof Britain Was Behind Alleged Syria Chemical Attack

The Pentagon said it gave no explicit warning.

Russian ambassador to the United Nations Vassily Nebenzia said Saturday that his delegation is putting forward a "brief" draft resolution for the UN Security Council to vote on at the end of Saturday's emergency meeting on Syria.

French President Emmanuel Macron said Sunday that France wants to launch a diplomatic initiative over Syria that would include Western powers, Russian Federation and Turkey.

Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia told the Security Council gathering that the allies were interested only in ousting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government and containing Russian Federation.

Russian Federation and Iran called the use of force by the United States and its French and British allies a "military crime" and "act of aggression".

President Vladimir Putin said that the military action launched by the US, in cooperation with Britain and France, was "an act of aggression" against a sovereign state and strongly condemned the act.

The U.S., United Kingdom and France said they launched airstrikes against Syrian chemical sites after obtaining evidence that a chemical weapon was used by President Bashar Assad's government.

Liberal senator and former general Jim Molan expects Russian Federation to retaliate following the US-led allied missile attack on Syria's chemical weapons program.

The US-led action "makes the already catastrophic humanitarian situation in Syria even worse and brings suffering to civilians", Putin's statement says.

Hundreds of Syrians demonstrated in a landmark square of the Syrian Capital, waving victory signs and honking their auto horns in a show of defiance.

"Russia in the most serious way condemns the attack on Syria, where Russian military servicemen help the legitimate government to fight terrorism", Putin said. Fortunately, the US-led strikes were carefully tailored not to hit Russian or Iranian interests in Syria. Although Dunford stressed the regularity of communications via this line, the type of offensive US officials notified the Russian military of was undoubtedly out of the ordinary when compared to ongoing anti-ISIS operations.

In an interview with CBS' "Face the Nation", Haley said that the sanctions would be announced Monday by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Syria and its ally Russia have denied such an attack took place, and Moscow has accused Britain of helping to stage the Douma incident to stoke anti-Russian hysteria.

The military strike in Syria that drew a gleeful "Mission Accomplished" from President Trump on Twitter is not exacting the same elation from some Middle East experts who see a long, hard climb to peace in the war-weary Muslim nation. In fact, Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said no additional attacks were planned.

Chemical weapons analysis and storage vegetation have been flattened in Homs and Damascus.

"When it comes to information warfare, the Western media has proved pretty solidly anti-Putin, so disrupting television and radio signals, for example, would be an attractive target for Russian hackers". When pressed, however, he acknowledged that some unspecified portion of Assad's chemical arms infrastructure was not targeted. "I think they're feeling that".

Syrian television reported that a scientific research center had been hit and that Syrian air defenses had hit 13 incoming rockets south of Damascus. "It does not exist anymore".

Putin added that the strike had a "destructive influence on the entire system of global relations". He said the strikes were unlikely to curb the government's ability to produce or launch new attacks.

He spoke as the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) watchdog held an urgent meeting.

The defense ministry also said today that they were considering helping Damascus beef up its air defenses, including giving them Russia's much-vaunted - this S-300 surface-to-air missile systems. He said Syria's air defenses were ineffective and that numerous more than 40 surface-to-air missiles fired by the Syrians were launched after the allied attack was over.
