U.S. troops not leaving Syria until goals accomplished: Haley

"If the Syrian regime uses this poison gas again, the United States is locked and loaded", Haley said.

The United States, the UK and France said the strikes were a response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria's Douma.

The ministry reported that a total of 100 cruise and air-to-surface missiles had been fired (while 59 missiles were fired at the Shayrat Airbase last year), a lot of them were shot down by Syria's air defense units upon approaching their targets.

The UN Security Council on April 14 rejected an effort by Russian Federation, a key ally of Syria, to denounce it as an unjustified "aggression" against a sovereign state. The Syrian leadership, in its turn, denied any involvement in the attack and invited the experts from the OPCW to investigate the reports.

Mr Nebenzia accused the US, UK and France of "hooliganism" and of "demonstrating a blatant disregard for worldwide law".

Speaking on CBS News' "Face the Nation" program, Haley said the sanctions are imminent, targeting Russian companies that have helped the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad make and deploy chemical weapons like those that spurred the United States and its allies to launch more than 100 missiles at Syria over the weekend. "We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will", she said.

She added: "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line". She said the administration has responded with a number of aggressive actions, such as "the sanctions continuing to happen, which you'll see again on Monday".

The monitoring group said the source of the blast on April 14 was not immediately clear and could have been caused by an air strike or an incident.

"While the U.S. and our allies must not turn a blind eye to Assad's vile and inhumane attacks against his own citizens, military action in Syria must be measured, as part of a coherent strategy to prevent Assad from using chemical weapons without further destabilising an already-volatile region or inadvertently expanding the conflict", said Senator Mark Warner. French President Emmanuel Macron spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, hours before the Western missile strikes.

The administration is justified to take limited action in coordination with its allies to hold Assad accountable for the use of chemical weapons, said Congressman Ed Royce, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Commitee."The horrifying chemical weapon attacks on innocent civilians is a war crime and Bashar al-Assad and his regime must be held accountable". "We have to be conscious of the fact that we can't allow even the smallest use of chemical weapons".

The two leaders agreed that the Western strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution in Syria, the news agencies reported.

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