Top Russian, Iranian Generals Condemn US Missile Strike

Russian Federation and Syria have denied carrying out a chemical attack, instead blaming the incident on chemicals being released after an airstrike hit a "terrorist" arsenal.

But instead of regime change, what we should focus on is humanitarian relief ...

"I don't think anything is off the table", Haley said.

Russian Federation is responsible "by proxy" for the deaths of more than 80 civilians gassed in Syria last week, the Defence Secretary claimed today in bold attack on President Putin.

Members of Trump's administration have hinted that the U.S.is not done intervening in Syria.

Russian and Iranian presidents in a phone conversation stressed the inadmissibility of "aggressive" US actions against Syria in violation of worldwide law, the Kremlin said in a statement issued on Sunday. She added that while seeking a political solution in Syria remained one of the top priorities for the Trump administration, there could no political solution in Syria with Assad in power.

"There is no political solution that any of us can see with Assad at the lead", Haley said. "Those who think that by supporting terrorists, they can change Syria's future in their interest, are absolutely wrong", Rouhani said.

A senior USA official said Monday that the United States has determined Russian Federation knew in advance about the Syrian chemical attack that took place last week and that someone bombed the hospital where victims were being treated to cover up the attack, according to The Associated Press.

"Getting Assad out is not the only priority", she continued.

Thousands of US troops are already in Syria and Iraq to help regional forces in the fight to defeat ISIS.

"We're asking and calling on Bashar al-Assad to cease the use of these weapons".

Mr. Rouhani and Putin talked in a phone call Sunday the Syrian situation after the USA missile attack which hit al-Shayrat Airbase earlier last week.

The Associated Press reported that Washington was investigating whether Russian Federation had any involvement in the suspected chemical attack on civilians in the Idlib Province.

The regional alliance said the USA cruise missile strikes on a Syrian base would not deter the forces from liberating all of Syrian territory.

Why was Syria's Shayrat airbase bombed?

Haley said the airstrikes destroyed an airfield from which the United States believes the chemical attacks on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhun were launched.

The Syrian forces resumed flight operations at the airbase that was hit by the USA on Friday, an opposition group said.

It's not clear what the next move will be for the U.S.

United Nations war crimes investigators have opened a probe into the chemical attack, with UN Syrian envoy Staffan de Mistura saying all indications were that "it was a chemical attack and it came from the air".
