As well as a reinvigoration of the stalled United Nations peace talks, the draft also calls for a broad investigation into Syria's chemical weapons stockpiles, a ceasefire to be enforced, unimpeded deliveries of humanitarian aid and medical evacuations. Dick Durbin and Sen.

The European Union supports efforts to prevent chemical attacks in Syria, but the only possible solution to the Syrian crisis is political, not military, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Sunday following the Arab League summit in Saudi Arabia. The suspected poison gas attack creates a conundrum for Western powers, who are determined to punish Assad for using chemical weapons but have no strategy for the sort of sustained intervention that might damage him.

Syrian and Russian officials had warned of "pending security issues to be worked out before any deployment could take place", Uzumcu said.

France concluded after technical analysis of open sources and "reliable intelligence" that a chemical attack on Douma on April 7 was carried out by Syrian government forces, a declassified intelligence report said on Saturday.

"Trump failed in his aggression", said 51-year-old civil servant Mohammed Hammad. The president of the New America Foundation, Anne Marie Slaughter, tweeted that she believes that the United States, the United Kingdom, and France did "the right thing" by striking Syria. The Russian government accused the United Kingdom of staging the attack, which the British government says is "ludicrous".

"We still have troops on the ground, but the president wants to bring those people home and that hasn't shifted", said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, adding "we don't have a time frame on it".

The White House said Monday that Mr. Trump still wants to pull US troops out of Syria, despite a boast by France's president that he persuaded Mr. Trump to commit American forces to the war-torn nation for the long term.

The Pentagon said no further action was planned but Washington's envoy to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, warned that the U.S. was "locked and loaded" should another gas attack occur.


Putin denounced on Saturday "with the utmost firmness" the strikes which he described as "an act of aggression against a sovereign state which is at the forefront of the fight against terrorism".

Nasr al-Hariri, a senior opposition leader, said the worldwide community must take responsibility for any retaliation by the Syrian government against civilians in opposition areas. He insisted, "Every single one hit their target". The military said there were three targets: the Barzah chemical weapons research and development site in the Damascus area, a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs and a chemical weapons "bunker" a few miles from the second target.

The narrowly targeted pre-dawn military operation on Saturday took aim at three alleged chemical weapons facilities.

"Seventy-five people, including young children, were killed in a horrific chemical attack", said May, calling the attack "a stain on our humanity".

"What happens next decides on what the Assad regime decides to do", White said.

"For all the sound and fury of these strikes, their net effect is a slap on the wrist of Bashar al-Assad", said Nick Heras, an analyst at the Center for a New American Security.

Haley appeared on Fox News Sunday and CBS' Face the Nation.
