"I join President Trump in praying for the safety of our war fighters - the finest among us - and our allies as they avenge and deter the use of outlawed chemical weapons in Syria". Syria released video of the wreckage of a bombed-out research lab, but also of President Bashar al-Assad arriving at work as usual, with the caption "Morning of resilience".
Criticizing the United States and its allies for launching the missile strikes despite absence of any proven evidence regarding the use of chemical weapons by Syrian government, Iran's Foreign Ministry said America and its allies will assume responsibility for the regional and trans-regional consequences of this adventurism.
The Syrian civil war is not in its seventh year.
Bowen called Rojava, the Kurds' name for the part of Syria they control, "a peaceful and democratic community" where Muslim sects, Christians, and members of other Syrian groups have sought refuge from warfare between Assad's allies and Islamist rebels.
He did not say whether France is planning military action against Assad's government.
Thaaer Alibrahim said he thinks the US -led attack is just for show.
Reaction from the global community to the strikes has ranged widely on Saturday.
The administration maintains that it "exhausted every avenue in the worldwide community" for diplomacy and sanctions before launching the missile strike, and that the President and allies felt the appropriate response was military action.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has condemned the overnight US-led missile attack on Syria and called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council, the Kremlin has said.
"Assad has established himself as a user of chemical weapons" from past attacks, the official added.
It is our goal "to see American troops come home, but we are not going to leave until we know we have accomplished those things", Haley said. We hit the sites, the heart of the chem-weapons program. "We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will", US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said.
One big question has been raised relating to USA, United Kingdom and French missiles strikes in Syria: Were they legal?
He was supported by several opposition politicians, among them Nicola Sturgeon, Scottish First Minister, who said: "The question that the PM has not answered is how this action, taken without parliamentary approval, will halt their use or bring long-term peace".
"Russia severely condemns the attack on Syria where Russian military are helping the lawful government in the fight with terrorism", the Kremlin said in a statement.
Western powers say chemical substances, most likely chlorine and sarin, were used in the attack and killed at least 40 civilians. In a calculated show of defiance, the presidency posted a video showing Mr Assad apparently turning up for work following the attacks.
