Kuwait calls for maintaining stability after United States strike on Syria

Nikki Haley on Larry Kudlow's Remark: 'I Don't Get Confused'

The "precise, overwhelming and effective" military strike in Syria was aimed to "cripple" the chemical weapons infrastructure of the Syrian regime and it succeeded in destroying three chemical weapons facilities in the war-torn country, the Pentagon on Saturday said.

Slamming the allegations of use of chemical weapons by the Damascus government as a stupid show for justifying the aggression, the Palestinian official said the Syrian Army was closing in on Douma after liberating Eastern Ghouta and may have not used poison gas which firstly kills its own troops.

The U.S., Canada and their allies have largely dismissed Damascus's denials and said the strikes were necessary, but have not said how they know that the Syrian government was responsible for the chemical-weapon attacks.

Donald Trump has been condemned by Russian Federation and Syria for the strikes, which have been dubbed by both county's leaders as "an act of aggression".

She accused Russian Federation of defending Syrian President Bashar Assad and failing to ensure that Syria's chemical weapons were destroyed as the Assad regime had pledged in 2013.

Assad also declined to comment on calls by the U.S. state department to declare alleged Syrian stockpiles of chemical weapons, Zheleznyak said.

The developments undermined the global community's efforts to reach a political solution to the seven-year bloody political conflict in Syria, which killed hundreds of thousands of people and left millions of others homeless, the source added.

Russia's Nebenzia called it "a very sad day for the world, for the United Nations, for its Charter which was blatantly, blatantly violated, and for the Security Council which has shirked its responsibilities".

Haley warned that the United States was "locked and loaded", ready to strike again if any new chemical attack was carried out in Syria.

"I'm a Syrian refugee who survived chemical weapons attacks", he said.

Erdogan told May that the only way to long-lasting peace in Syria was a "political solution", the source added. Turkey is a vocal critic of Assad's regime in Damascus and backed rebels fighting for his ouster.

Although the White House and the Defense Department made it clear that they meant to pursue only the one strike unless Syria used chemical weapons again, the US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, underscored that the United States is "locked and loaded" in her statement on Saturday.

"I urge all member states to show restraint in these risky circumstances and to avoid any acts that could escalate matters and worsen the suffering of the Syrian people", the UN Secretary General said.

"I would like to believe that we will not see a day that is worse than today", he said.

"When our President draws a red line, our President enforces the red line", she said.

In Damascus, Assad told a group of visiting Russian lawmakers that Western missile strikes on his country were an act of aggression.

The Pentagon said the strikes successfully hit the three chemical weapons facilities which were targeted.

They quoted the legislators as saying Assad was in a "good mood" and accepted an invitation to visit the Siberian region of Khanty-Mansi.

Saeed Saeed, head of the Institution for the Development of Pharmaceutical and Chemical Industries, said the center was previously used by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) but now works on pharmaceutical products.

McKenzie said the operation was "precise, overwhelming, and effective", adding it will set Syria's chemical-weapons program back "for years".
