The United States is preparing new sanctions against Russian Federation

If the United States sanctions are enacted, they will be the second such batch in just over a year against Syria's weapons of mass destruction program.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Sunday that the sanctions are being imposed "without any link to any realities". Shortly after US President Donald Trump announced the bombardment, reports began surfacing of explosions in Damascus.

Haley also criticized Russian Federation on Fox News Sunday, accusing it of enabling the Syrian government to use chemical weapons without worrying about blowback at the United Nations. While some investors are pointing to rising oil prices as a reason to buy assets of the world's biggest energy producer, others warn that Russia's deteriorating relations with the West create too much uncertainty about how far US penalties will go. Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 in front of a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that would tie down US forces for years. The Pentagon said it gave no explicit warning.

Hours later, the Russian embassy in Damascus said no Russians were known to have been hurt in the overnight airstrike. "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again".

Russian Federation and Iran called the use of force by the U.S. and its French and British allies a "military crime" and "act of aggression".

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Sunday that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs, as Washington prepared to increase pressure on Russia with new economic sanctions.

"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", Trump said from the White House Diplomatic Reception Room.

"The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war", he told reporters.

The other two were suspected chemical weapons facilities at Him Shinshar near Homs.

U.S. Sen. Angus King, an independent from ME who typically votes with Democrats, questioned Trump's optimism about the strike, noting that the U.S. also struck Syria with missiles past year after an apparent chemical attack.

Syria's air defences "were made in the USSR more than 30 years ago", the ministry said.

The United States communicated with Russia before launching strikes on Syria on Saturday to reduce the risk of killing Russian servicemen, US Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman said.

Assad's Barzah research and development center in Damascus was destroyed, McKenzie said. He said the strikes were unlikely to curb the government's ability to produce or launch new attacks.

The ministry was set to hold a press briefing at around 0630 GMT.

Reacting to the strikes, the Russian foreign ministry lamented the American failure to heed the Kremlin's warnings and accused the USA of acting without proof that the Syrians had used chemical weapons.

Western powers say chemical substances, most likely chlorine and sarin, were used in the attack and killed at least 40 civilians. He said the USA knew of no civilians killed by allied missiles.

In comparison, the Astute-class British submarines have limited firepower and can carrying around 20 Tomahawk cruise missiles.

"The global community will not allow chemical weapons to come back into our everyday life", she said in an interview aired Sunday.

"It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site".

The strikes, it said, were conducted by two USA ships traversing the Red Sea, adding that the coalition also deployed B-1 Lancer strategic bombers and arranged tactical air support in the airspace over the Mediterranean.
