Putin, Rouhani discuss US-led airstrikes on Syria

There will be more.

The vote reflected the deep divisions in the UN's most powerful body, which has been paralysed in dealing with the seven-year Syrian conflict and chemical weapons use in the country.

The combined US-French-British operation used ships, a submarine and warplanes to launch a barrage of 105 guided missiles towards three chemical weapons facilities in Syria in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack a week ago on the rebel-held town of Douma that left more than 40 people dead.

"There's various intel, and I won't speak to that", she said.

Or perhaps there would need to be a series of violations, as was the case before 7 April, prior to any U.S. action.

"Hopefully he's gotten the message, it was a pretty strong message", she said.

ImageSat International released early Sunday morning satellite images that reveal the damage caused by the missiles launched in the Western attack on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons program.

The US will not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals are accomplished there, Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said.

Despite claims by President Trump that the operation was an "enormous success", it is being interpreted in Syria as a win for Assad because the limited scope of the strikes suggested that Western powers do not intend to challenge his rule.

This time, Trump declared "Mission Accomplished!" in a tweet, recalling the phrase made infamous by President George W. Bush after a premature celebration of the 2003 USA -led invasion of Iraq. A United States spokeswoman said Friday the allies had "proof".

A draft resolution circulated by the three countries would condemn all use of chemical weapons, especially the April 7 attack in Douma. "I don't say we've ever said it's OK", she said.

Syria called the devastating strike a "violation of worldwide law" while Mr Putin denounced the act "with the utmost firmness".

"From the point of view of the President, this was aggression and we share this position", Russia's TASS news agency quoted politician Sergei Zheleznyak as saying after the meeting with Mr Assad.

President Trump addressed the nation from the White House on Friday night, local time, saying he had given the order for the US military - in conjunction with Britain and France - to launch airstrikes on Syria.

USA military officials said an initial assessment showed every one of the missiles struck its target on Saturday, reducing the facilities to rubble while avoiding any civilian casualties.

One site hit by the barrage of missiles was the Bazrah Research Center, a scientific research center on the outskirts of Damascus. "Because it's like, 'Oh no, you can't use chemical weapons but you can use violence, you can starve them, you can use missiles and air strikes against them, ' but chemical weapons are a no?" But late Saturday, senior administration officials called the evidence "incontrovertible".

- Syrian state TV called the attacks a "blatant violation of worldwide law and shows contempt for global legitimacy".

"No Syrian weapon had any effect on what we did", said McKenzie.
