U.S. military officials said the air strikes took out "the heart" of Syria's chemical weapons facilities, but it remained to be seen how Syria would respond. She said the administration has responded with a number of aggressive actions, such as "the sanctions continuing to happen, which you'll see again on Monday".

President Donald Trump was extremely online Sunday morning.

"We will work calmly, methodically and professionally, using all opportunities to remove the situation from its current extremely risky political peak". "We can't control what a country does to its people".

In Damascus, Syria's deputy foreign minister, Faisal Mekdad, met inspectors from the global chemical weapons watchdog OPCW for about three hours in the presence of Russian officers and a senior Syrian security official. The attack last week killed dozens of people including children.

In the emblematic square of Sadallah Jaberi, in the northern city of Aleppo, over 15,000 citizens assembled as an expression of condemnation of the attack perpetrated by the United States and other Western countries.

The investigators had arrived Saturday, shortly after the airstrikes had taken place.

Firefighters say a vehicle fully engulfed in flames Sunday afternoon sparked a brush fire nearby. The brush fire in the area of Iron Bridge and Rearicks Fording Road was reported around 5:10 p.m.

Russia denounced allegations of a gas attack in Douma and said it was staged by Britain to whip up anti-Russian hysteria. "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again".

Assad "now dictates his own life", Haley said.

Haley said that the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished.

Haley rejected the premise posed by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace that the USA has condoned Assad's use of conventional weapons to kill rebels attacking his forces, just not chemical agents.

In late March, Trump made a surprise announcement, saying the US would withdraw from Syria in the near future. But he appeared to contradict that message when he said on Saturday that Western allies were prepared to "sustain" the military response if Assad does not stop using prohibited chemical weapons. He added that he knew the media would "seize" on the phrase, but said it should be used often.

But British Prime Minister Theresa May said there was little doubt the Syrian government used a barrel bomb - large containers packed with fuel, explosives and scraps of metal - to deliver the chemicals at Douma. "And we were able to repel it with Soviet missiles from the 70s", Russian lawmaker Dmitry Sablin quoted Assad as saying, TASS reported.

Syria released video of the wreckage of a bombed-out research lab, but also of Assad arriving at work as usual, with the caption "morning of resilience" and there were no immediate reports of casualties.

President Donald Trump on Sunday defended his use of the phrase "Mission Accomplished" to describe a US -led allied missile attack on Syria's chemical weapons program, saying "it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back".

Russian and Iranian military help over the past three years has allowed Assad to crush the rebel threat to topple him.

"This is not going to solve the Syrian conflict".

The visiting Russians described Assad as being in a "good mood". Haley noted that Russian Federation has vetoed six resolutions in the U.N. Security Council regarding chemical weapons.

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

Eric Staal and his line of course must be better than they were in game one, but again, that is an easy finger point situation. He beat Jason Zucker down the boards and bested goalie Devan Dubnyk on the blocker side over this right shoulder.

"We need more serious steps, more pressure to go to the negotiating table to find a political solution", even if that includes military intervention, she said.
