Haley to Russian Federation on Syria's Chemical Weapons: 'We Know Who Did This'

Two days ago President Donald Trump warned that missiles "will be coming" in response to the gas attack on Douma, a town near Damascus which had been held by rebels until this month. "What we should discuss today is the use of deadly chemical weapons to murder innocent Syrian civilians".

It seeks answers from Syria on gaps in its chemical weapons declaration to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

None of the missiles fired by the United States and its allies were routed through the Russian air defense zone in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement Saturday, after multinational forces hammered select targets in Syria.

"The escalation of the situation around Syria has a devastating impact on the whole system of global relations", he added.

The US president said Washington is prepared to "sustain" pressure on al-Assad until he ends what Trump called a criminal pattern of killing his own people with internationally banned chemical weapons.

Britain has accused Russian Federation of poisoning them with a Soviet-designed agent, an accusation that Moscow denies. France, the United Kingdom and the United States will brief allies on actions taken in Syria, the official said. "No final decision has been made", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, adding that Trump would confer with French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

"We put facts contrary to your myths, " he said. But he also appeared anxious to avoid a wider conflict, saying France would "in no way allow an escalation."German Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert told a news conference on Friday that Damascus had a record of using chemical weapons and that there were "strong indications pointing towards the Syrian regime" in this case".

Meanwhile, the Defense Ministry in a statement said Russian military bases in Syria had not been affected by the joint strike.

France's UN Ambassador Francois Delattre said the result of the vote sends "a clear message" that Security Council members recognized the need for the airstrikes, and "their proportional and targeted nature".

"The military operation was necessary and appropriate to preserve the effectiveness of the global ban on the use of chemical weapons and to warn the Syrian regime of further violations", she said in a statement voicing support for the joint US, UK and French action.

"Once again, we demand an immediate stop to aggression and refrain from the illegal use of force in the future, " he said. What is less clear is whether sarin - the agent used in the chemical attack last April that prompted US missile strikes - or a similar agent was also used.

However, Iran - another key ally of the Assad government - condemned the strikes.

But the Violations Documentation Center (VDC), which records alleged violations of global law in Syria, said bodies were found with oral foaming, cyanosis, and corneal burns.
