All three participants insisted the strikes were not aimed at toppling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad or intervening in the conflict. "They will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use", Haley said.

"I think everyone is going to feel it at this point", she said on CBS.

They quoted the legislators as saying Assad was in a "good mood" and accepted an invitation to visit the Siberian region of Khanty-Mansi.

And on the same day that the team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons began work to determine whether chemical weapons were used in Douma on April 7, more than 100 missiles were fired by the US, Britain and France into Syria.

MONTREAL-Syrian Canadians expressed a range of reactions to the recent USA -led airstrikes against Syria's government, with some denouncing foreign aggression and others calling for even stronger action to end the conflict that has devastated the country.

"Trudeau is not acting because the Canadian public doesn't know what is happening in Syria", she said.

The latests strikes suggest that Trump may have reset America's red line for military intervention in Syria over the use of chemical weapons.

"This was very strong attack on the chemical weapons program".

"In the USA administration there are specific people who it is possible to talk with", said Ermakov, head of the ministry's department for non-proliferation and arms control. "This was not muscle flexing". "We have to be conscious of the fact that we can't allow even the smallest use of chemical weapons". "Our job was never to start a war".

It comes as President Trump has defended his use of the term "mission accomplished" following the weekend's airstrikes.

"Furthermore, there were clearly attempts to block any proper investigation, as we saw with the Russian veto at the United Nations earlier in the week". A senior Russian military official said on Saturday that Syria's air defences, which mostly consist of systems made in the former Soviet Union, had intercepted 71 of the 105 American, British and French missiles.

In northern Syria, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said an explosion rocked an area where pro-government Iranian fighters and allied Shi'ite militias were based. "I assure you, we have convinced him that it is necessary to stay for the long-term".

Sen. Tim Kaine, also appearing on "Face the Nation", slammed the air strikes as illegal and reckless without approval from Congress. "He's a President. He's supposed to come to Congress to seek permission to initiate a war".

Kaine said the Syrian operations lack a clear strategy. He added that the Congress must have a full role in reviewing and approving the strategy. But we heard different things from the administration. Are we staying there now to topple Assad, to counter Iran, to check Russian Federation, to help the Kurds, to buttress Israel, to rebuild our relationships with Turkey? They haven't laid out a strategy and military action shouldn't be taken as a one off.

He has made clear he wants to withdraw the roughly 2,000 USA troops in Syria involved in the anti-Islamic State campaign.

The bombings, hailed by U.S. President Donald Trump as a success but denounced by Damascus and its allies as an act of aggression, marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Assad and his ally Russian Federation, whose foreign minister Sergei Lavrov called them "unacceptable and lawless".

Russian Federation and Iran have called the strikes a "military crime" and "act of aggression".

The two leaders agreed that the Western strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution in Syria, the news agencies reported.

"Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions in violation of the U.N. Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in global relations", RIA news agency quoted the Kremlin as saying in a statement.

Iran and Russian Federation should not allow the "fire of a new tension" to flare up in the region, Rouhani said, adding that the airstrikes were an "invasion" aimed at "emboldening defeated terrorists", IRNA reported.
