"I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator of Bashar al-Assad".

"No Syrian weapon had any effect on what we did", said McKenzie.

Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said there were now no plans for further attacks in Syria after Britain and its allies France and the United States launched air strikes on the regime's chemical weapons facilities.

In announcemnt made in the past few minutes the US President Donald Trump has confirmed that a number of missiles have been launched on chemical weapons factories in the Syrian capital.

Haley said the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished.

"We are determined to completely crush ISIS and create the conditions that will prevent its return." she said, referring to the Islamic State extremist group. "We can't control what a country does to its people".

Mr Putin's comments were published shortly after Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov struck a more conciliatory note by saying Moscow would make every effort to improve political relations with the West.

Much like US statements, Britain's foreign secretary Boris Johnson said there are no plans to launch additional military strikes against Syria, but that his country and its allies will consider further action if Assad uses chemical weapons against his people in the future.

The Syrian Armed Forces later said the USA and its Western allies fired a total of one-hundred-and-ten missiles from manned aircraft and ships.

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

"One again, just like a year ago when the USA attacked Shayrat Airbase in Syria, a staged chemical attack against civilians was used as a pretext, this time in Douma, a Damascus suburb".

Johnson added there was no proposal in place for further attacks, but if Assad's regime were to repeat chemical attacks "clearly, with allies, we would study what the options were". But late Saturday, senior administration officials called the evidence "incontrovertible".

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad described US -led air strikes against the country as an act of aggression during a meeting with Russian lawmakers Sunday.

After the air strikes U.S. Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, director of the joint chiefs of staff, said he hadn't seen any indication that Russian air defense systems were used, calling Syria's response "indiscriminate" and mostly futile.
