US putting new sanctions on Russia over Syria support

Trump Declares 'Mission Accomplished' In Syria Strike What to Know About the US-Led Missile Strikes on Syria

During a previous UNSC meeting, the USA envoy to the United Nations also accused Russian Federation of "stopping at nothing to defend the Syrian regime's multiple uses of chemical weapons", also without providing any evidence.

"The sanctions [are] continuing to happen, which you will see again on Monday", Haley told Fox News Sunday.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Friday night that the USA was expecting a disinformation campaign by those aligned with the Assad regime.

Russian Federation called for an emergency session of United Nations Security Council on Saturday.

"The worldwide community will not allow chemical weapons to come back into our everyday life", she said.

In another interesting development it was revealed that, in contrast to the claim by the western powers of hitting Syria's chemical weapons program, the facility based in Barzeh district houses "the Institute for Development of Pharmaceutical and Chemical Industries" which is specialised in producing anti-cancer drugs which are direly in short supply amid western sanctions.

Syria has repeatedly denied using banned weapons.

"Since the Syria crisis broke out, the country has been short of all kinds of medicines due to the sanctions from Western countries". "That's probably the best answer I can give you".

As the sun rose, hundreds had gathered in Damascus' landmark Omayyad Square, celebrating what they said was the army's success in foiling the U.S-led military action.

Ayatollah Khamenei is considered to be most powerful leader in the region against US-Israel-Saudi Arabia and their allies' designs in the region.

That means an end to chemical weapons usage, the complete defeat of ISIS in Syria, and curbing Iranian influence in the area. 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? Tehran also claims of morally supporting Yemen's Houthi Ansarullah and the opposition groups in Bahrain.

Russian Federation said on Saturday it would consider supplying S-300 surface to-air missile systems to Syria following the Western strikes, but this was not discussed at the meeting with Assad, agencies reported. The U.S. ambassador in Moscow, John Huntsman, said in a video, "Before we took action, the United States communicated with" Russia to "reduce the danger of any Russian or civilian casualties". That's the last thing the President wanted was war.

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

She also said the US would "never" agree to direct talks with the Syrian regime, saying the government of President Bashar Assad is "not worthy" of one-on-one engagement. They also called the attack an impediment to peace.

Qatar was the first country among Arab neighbours to react.

Many of President Trump's biggest supporters in the media world are slamming his decision to bomb Syria on Friday, describing the move as a betrayal of his campaign promises to avoid entangling the U.S. in more foreign conflicts as president.

While some Syrians are in favour of air strikes, others say foreign aggression isn't the answer.

"If President Obama had crossed his stated Red Line In The Sand, the Syrian disaster would have ended long ago!" he tweeted last Sunday as his defense secretary was preparing a military response.

Hours later, the allies signaled their resolve to return to diplomacy, launching a new bid at the United Nations to investigate the chemical weapons attacks.They circulated a joint draft resolution at the Security Council that also calls for unimpeded deliveries of humanitarian aid and enforcement of a ceasefire and demands that Syria engage in UN-led peace talks, according to the text obtained by AFP. It received three votes in favour, eight votes against and four abstentions.

The Syrian government and its ally Russian Federation denied the allegations.

Kaine said the Syrian operations lack a clear strategy. The images reveal crushing damage to structures at the target site.

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.
