U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday defended President Trump's declaration of "mission accomplished" in the Syria missile strikes, saying the president was talking in military terms about a singular task, not about foreign policy, while reinforcing that the "United States' work in Syria is not done".

A former officer in Syria's chemical program, Adulsalam Abdulrazek, said Saturday the joint U.S., British, and French strikes hit "parts of but not the heart" of the program.

"They will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to (Syrian President Bashar al) Assad and chemical weapons use".

The nighttime Syria assault was carefully limited to minimize civilian casualties and avoid direct conflict with Syria's key ally, Russia, but confusion arose over the extent to which Washington warned Moscow in advance. "And we were able to repel it with Soviet missiles from the 70s", lawmaker Dmitry Sablin quoted Assad as saying, according to Russia's TASS news agency. Hill says in 2013, the Russians promised to oversee the withdrawal of chemical weapons from Syria.

The visiting Russians described Assad as being in a "good mood".

"There is no proposal on the table for further attacks because so far, thank heavens, the Assad regime has not been so foolish as to launch another chemical weapons attack", he told BBC1's Andrew Marr Show. Russian Federation has long backed the Assad regime and has repeatedly vetoed UN Security Council resolutions concerning chemical weapons.

Later Sunday, Haley told CBS' "Face the Nation " that the USA will be imposing more economic sanctions on Russian Federation for its support of Assad and his apparent use of chemical weapons. The operation targeted three Syrian chemical weapons facilities - one in the capital of Damascus and two others near Homs, near the border with northern Lebanon.

He said they were unlikely to curb the government's ability to produce such weapons or launch new attacks. Syria has always denied any chemical use and accused rebels of fabricating the attack. "We were not looking to kill people", she said.

Inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are now in Damascus and are expected to visit Douma this weekend.

Russia denounced allegations of a gas attack in Douma and said it was staged by Britain to whip up anti-Russian hysteria. He criticized the USA and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for global inspectors to complete their visit to the area. "No other group" could have carried out that attack, May said, adding that the allies' use of force was "right and legal".
