Saturday's attacks, which came in response to a suspected chemical attack on the former rebel stronghold of Douma on April 7, targeted the sites near Damascus as well as in the province of Homs.

"Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the UN Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in global relations", the Kremlin said.

Describing the strike as a deterrent, Trump said the USA would maintain pressure on Syria until the Assad regime suspends use of chemical weapons.

Trump a year ago imposed a controversial travel ban permanently closing the United States border for citizens of Yemen, Syria, Libya, Iran, Somalia, North Korea and Chad.

Theresa May is preparing to face questions from MPs about her decision to launch air strikes against military targets in Syria alongside the USA and France.

The Syrian government, which denies the chemical attack, said the strikes were brutal, barbaric aggression by western powers and vowed to continue to restore security and stability in all corners of the country.

"There is no proposal on the table at the moment for further attacks because so far, thank heavens, the Assad regime have not been so foolish as to launch another chemical weapons attack", he told the Andrew Marr show.

"The evil and the despicable attack left mothers and fathers, infants and children, thrashing in pain and gasping for air". He said the strikes are a response to the "crimes of a monster".

The US president sought to bring back the vestiges of World War I, after which civilised nations joined together to ban chemical warfare.


He reiterated that Canada condemns the use of chemical weapons in Ghouta.

This action is absolutely in Britain's national interest.

"While this action is specifically about deterring the Syrian regime, it will also send a clear signal to anyone else who believes they can use chemical weapons with impunity", May said.

The expert also drew attention to the persisting risks of a military standoff between Russian Federation and the United States. This time, May's promise that it was a limited action that has ended, added to their dislike for Corbyn's position, could keep more of them in place. "No state can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states, brutal tyrants and murderous dictators".

The shadow of the 2003 invasion of Iraq still lingers in the corridors of Britain's parliament, when MPs backed then-prime minister Tony Blair in joining USA military action.

"They are in government".

Syria says it had given up its chemical weapons in 2013. "Hopefully, someday we'll get along with Russian Federation, and maybe even Iran - but maybe not", he said.

"This extraordinary u-turn is an admission that the Prime Minister made an error in failing to recall Parliament and is yet more evidence of how ill considered this military action is - and just how far Theresa May's actions have been dictated by presidential tweet".

"The American (military) knows well that going towards a wide confrontation and a big operation against the regime and the army and the allied forces in Syria could not end, and any such confrontation would inflame the entire region", Nasrallah said.
