Putin Warns of Global 'Chaos' if Syria Is Hit Again

The president wrote "Mission Accomplished!" in regards to the strikes coordinated by the US, the United Kingdom and France against Syrian targets.

She spoke after the USA led an air-and-sea missile attack overnight Friday on the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, in response to his purported March 7 chemical attack on civilians, in the country's years-long civil war.

He says people want to see justice after seeing the chemical attacks in Syria.

The US has reportedly around 2,000 troops stationed in Syria working as "advisers" to US-backed militant groups fighting the Syrian government. State company Rosoboronexport, which controls most of Russia's arms exports, was also subjected to sanctions.

Some in the Syrian community believe it was a small positive step in the right direction while others believe it will only cause more problems for the US and American troops in Syria. That did not mean military strikes would continue.

Meanwhile, Russia's defense ministry said Saturday the Western strikes claimed no victims among Syrian civilians or military. "Therefore, we will keep you all abreast of the facts moving forward".

"I urge all Member States to show restraint in these risky circumstances and to avoid any acts that could escalate the situation and worsen the suffering of the Syrian people", he said. They haven't laid out a strategy and military action shouldn't be taken as a one off.

In Washington, a senior administration official said that "while the available information is much greater on the chlorine use, we do have significant information that also points to sarin use" in the attack.

US President Donald Trump and his British and French allies on Saturday hailed their joint strikes in Syria in response to its alleged use of chemical weapons, warning Damascus that any repetition would be met with renewed firepower.

"President Assad was in absolutely positive spirits. Mnuchin will be announcing those on Monday, if he hasn´t already", Haley said in an interview with CBS's "Face the Nation".

Despite numerous accusations that she threw at Moscow, Haley told Fox News that the United States "hopes" it can "get a better relationship with Russian Federation".

"With the political and diplomatic actions that we're taking now, we wanted their friends Iran and Russian Federation to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well", she said.

"These are big things the president's been focused on", Sanders said. The legislation also called Putin out on human rights abuses.

"We say enough with death, enough with killing civilians", said Hani Atassi, president of the Syrian American Council chapter in Chicago.

She said that the United States, Britain and France had acted "to deter the future use of chemical weapons by holding the Syrian regime responsible for its atrocities against humanity".

The Pentagon said three primary targets, including a research center and weapons storage site, were hit.

In the last century, we looked straight into the darkest places of the human soul.

Most Gulf stock markets rose on Sunday, supported by firm oil prices and relief that the weekend's military attack on Syria was relatively limited in scope and there was no immediate retaliation.

Trump announced the airstrikes Friday night to attack Syria's chemical weapons program. Analysts and diplomats said the strike was unlikely to shake Assad's hold on power or change the trajectory of the conflict.

The president responded to the outrage early on Sunday morning. Putin said such actions will inevitably lead to "chaos" in global relations, according to a readout released by the Kremlin.

Assad didn't comment on calls by the US State Department to declare alleged Syrian stockpiles of chemical weapons during the meeting.

Russian Federation consistently vetoed any attempts to sanction Syria at the UN Security Council - the same Security Council it roused on Saturday for an emergency meeting on the US -led strikes.

The two leaders "found that this illegal action seriously damaged the prospects of a political settlement in Syria", a Kremlin statement said.
