Russian Federation demands UN Security Council condemn Syria missile attack but fails

Some of the children allegedly killed by Assad’s toxic gas

The United States, Britain and France have argued that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces had used toxic gases multiple times in violation of global law.

A draft resolution circulated by the three countries and obtained late Saturday by The Associated Press would condemn all use of chemical weapons, especially the April 7 attack in Douma.

In that case, he said it would be up to the United Nations to intervene.

"We've successfully destroyed three buildings in metropolitan Damascus, one of the most heavily defended airspace areas in the world", he added. The Russian Foreign Ministry dismissed these reports as fake news. "Our warnings have been left unheard.We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences", Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said in a statement.

Despite the strikes, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said it was still pursuing its investigation into the Douma attack.

For the time being, relief prevailed as the West and most of its allies expressed support for action to curtail the threat of Syria's chemical warfare as backers of the Syrian government expressed outrage at what they considered an illegal aggression against Syria's sovereignty.

These missile strikes were coordinated by the U.S., France and the U.K.in response to an alleged chemical attack by the Syrian government in Douma last week.

Ms Haley said the U.S. and its allies had given diplomacy "chance after chance" but Russian Federation had continued to veto United Nations resolutions.

Haley made clear the United States wont be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying U.S. involvement there is not done.

Haley said the three USA goals for accomplishing its mission are making sure chemical weapons are not used in a way that could harm U.S. national interests, defeating the Islamic State group and having a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing.

"We need more serious steps, more pressure to go to the negotiating table to find a political solution", even if that includes military intervention, she said.

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down", Haley said. "Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace", Mr Corbyn said. No casualties have been reported. She says: "President Assad has an absolutely positive attitude, a good mood".

Haley said the United States successfully hit the heart of Syria's chemical weapons enterprise, and because of these actions, it is confident that it has crippled Syria's chemical weapons programme.

He also thanked France and Britain for their joining in the strike with the United States with "Fine Military", saying the strikes "could not have had a better result".

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

Russian Federation had also proposed a draft resolution condemning the US-initiated strikes of Syria which was only supported by China and Bolivia.

Haley said the joint military strike put a heavy blow into their chemical weapons program, setting them back years and reiterated that if Assad uses poison gas again, the United States is locked and loaded.

"While the available information is much greater on the chlorine use, we do have significant information that also points to sarin use", a senior administration official said on a call with reporters, citing reports from media, nongovernmental organizations and other open sources.
