Assad appears confident on Syria state TV

The U.S., U.K., and France launched airstrikes on the Assad regime's alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria earlier on Saturday. "We can't control what a country does to its people".

Syria condemned the attack as a "flagrant violation of the global law", according to Syria's official SANA news agency.

Action to tackle the seven-year war and the use of chemical weapons has been stymied at the United Nations because of the veto-power wielded by Syria ally, Russia.

Pentagon officials and President Donald Trump on Saturday praised USA airstrikes in Syria, but some locals are saying America hasn't gone far enough.

In a show of support for Prime Minister Theresa May's decision to join the United States and France in attacking chemical weapons facilities in Syria on Saturday, her one-time political rival Johnson said it was the right thing to do.

McKenzie said the Him Shinshar chemical-weapons storage facility near Homs was hit by 22 missiles.

Responding to Haley's remarks about the plans for new sanctions, Evgeny Serebrennikov, deputy head of the defence committee of Russia's upper house of parliament, said Moscow was ready for the penalties, according to RIA news agency. Eight countries voted against and three abstained.

The inspectors were due to attempt to visit the Douma site.

In a news conference that took place on Saturday morning Pentagon Chief officials said they can't speculate on what will happen next.

A bullish Bashar Al Assad was in a good mood when he met a group of visiting Russian lawmakers after the attacks were more limited than predicted following Mr Trump's initially aggressive response to the Douma attack.

Russian Federation also decried the US -led operation as a failure, saying the majority of the rockets fired at Syria were intercepted by the Syrian government's air defense systems.

Protesters gathered in Chicago Saturday to condemn the United States' strike against Syria.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in an interview published Sunday in the Journal du Dimanche newspaper that "we should join our efforts to promote a political process in Syria that would allow a way out of the crisis".

Russia, which is helping the Syrian President fight rebel forces opposed to his rule, immediately condemned the strikes and called for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.

It's a big institution, but Sayed said it isn't possible that things were going on that he didn't know about.

Since the airstrikes, Syrians in government-controlled Damascus have been defiant.

Mr Johnson's comments echoed those of U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who told an emergency Security Council meeting that Mr Trump told her that if Syria uses poisonous gas again, "the United States is locked and loaded".
