Center Hit in US Attack Produced Cancer Drugs: Medical Head

"I spoke to the president this morning, and he said if the Syrian regime uses poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded", Haley said.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Saturday urged countries to uphold worldwide law as the Security Council met to discuss military strikes carried out by the United States, France and Britain on Syria.

Vice President Mike Pence also said Trump carried out the strikes armed with USA intelligence that at "a minimum it was the chemical weapon of chlorine", noting investigators still might prove sarin was used.

She spoke after the USA led an air-and-sea missile attack overnight Friday on the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, in response to his purported March 7 chemical attack on civilians, in the country's years-long civil war.

President Donald Trump has expressed his intention to pull all United States forces out of Syria in the near future.

"We are prepared to sustain this pressure if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will", CNN reported she told the U.N. Security Council.

Since the US and its allies attacked Syria Friday in response to alleged chemical weapons attacks on its own people, there has been a significant surge in Russian trolls promoting fake news, the Pentagon announced Saturday. Its Defense Ministry said that a dozen cruise missiles had targeted Dumayr air base. In response, the United States launched missiles toward targets of the Syrian Air Force.

Only three countries - Russia, China, and Bolivia - voted in favor of the resolution at the end of an emergency meeting of the 15-member council called by Russia on Saturday.

The operation was "precise, overwhelming and effective", McKenzie said, adding it will set their chemical weapons programme back "for years".

According to USA officials, the operation comprised three United States destroyers, a French frigate and a U.S. submarine.

Western powers blamed President Bashar al-Assad, but Syria and its ally Russian Federation categorically denied the claims and accused the West of "fabricating" the incident to justify military action.

"Assad's commitment of atrocities using chemical weapons against innocent civilians can not be tolerated by civilized nations", said Rep. Newhouse.

French President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement that a target of the strike was the Syrian government's "clandestine chemical arsenal". "But our efforts have been repeatedly thwarted" by Syria and Russian Federation, she said.

He did not rule out sarin use.
