That did not mean military strikes would continue.

At the meeting, the fifth in a week on chemical weapons in Syria, Russia and its supporters again clashed with the USA and its allies over a suspected poison gas attack on April 7 in the Damascus suburb of Douma.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has spoken highly of the Soviet-made weapons involved in thwarting the missile strike on Syria carried out by the U.S., the United Kingdom and France, member of Russia's State Duma (lower house of parliament) Sergei Zheleznyak said on Sunday following meeting between Russian lawmakers and the Syrian president. And while the perspectives on striking Syria may eventually take on a partisan tone, Republicans and Democrats alike should unite in not ceding their constitutional prerogative, and responsibility, to authorize the use of force.

The goal must be to force the regime, Iran and Russian Federation to engage in the political process, it said.

In a statement on Saturday, the IRGC said the trilateral military strike on Syrian government targets will strengthen the willpower of the anti-terror resistance elements and deepen the Syrian nation's hatred of the Western-Arab criminals.

"This is not the first time the regime has used chemical weapons".

In that case, he said it would be up to the United Nations to intervene.

"The Syrian regime has to do a couple of things - to declare its entire stockpile in all of its programs..."

Speaking to Rouhani by telephone the day after US-led strikes on suspected chemical weapons facilities, Putin said "if such actions, carried out in violation of the United Nations Charter, are repeated, that would inevitably provoke chaos in global relations", according to a statement from the Kremlin.

"The president does need to come to Congress", she said on NBC's Meet the Press.

Afterwards, he served at Marine Corps Air Station Futenma in Okinawa, Japan before getting shipped off to Vietnam in 1968. The role was a ideal fit for Ermey , because he was a Marine drill instructor during the Vietnam War.

US Defence Secretary James Mattis and Marine General Joseph Dunford said three main chemical weapons facilities were targeted at 9 pm EST (2 am CEST) by missiles from both the sea and aircraft. According to Russian Federation, 103 missiles were fired and 71 shot down, Dewey said.

White says the target choices were "very methodical", calling it a "deliberate decision" to go after chemical weapons facilities.

"We specifically identified these targets to mitigate the risk of Russian forces being involved", Dunford told reporters.

Trump tweeted Sunday that the strike was perfectly carried out and that the only way the Fake News Media could demean was by my use of the term Mission Accomplished.

Among the contentious proposals, it would establish an independent investigation into allegations of toxic gas attacks in Syria with the aim of identifying the perpetrators.

Damascus: Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Western strikes on government military installations today only made him more keen to fight back against his opponents, in comments published by his office. "The balance of power in Syria remains intact in favor of the Syrian regime, Iran, its proxies, Hezbollah and the Shiite militias".

But the military seemed less than troubled as it claimed that Syrian aerial defenses managed to shoot down most of the missiles and divert others.

The statement said "a significant number" of missiles were shot down by Syrian air defences.

"(But) what is clear is that neither Iran nor Russian Federation has the ability to counter these strikes.
