Vladimir Putin predicts 'global chaos' if West strikes Syria again

British foreign minister Boris Johnson on Sunday said the Syrian war will inevitably continue after unprecedented Western strikes, which were limited to targeting the country's alleged chemical weapons facilities. "We need to have these discussions because we don't see that Bashar al-Assad will all of a sudden become a real nice guy".

U.S. Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, director of the Joint Staff at the Pentagon, said the allied airstrikes "took out the heart" of Assad's chemical weapons arsenal.

USA officials said they hope the strike will serve to deter Syria's government from using chemical weapons in the future.

Later, a video showing Assad walking into his office carrying a briefcase was posted on the same account.

"Everyone is celebrating and declaring victory which is freaky since so many Syrians have suffered over the years, and the bombings have just taken place", he said.

In a us military action a year ago in response to a sarin gas attack, the Pentagon said missiles took out almost 20 percent of the Syrian air force. Russia's military said Syrian air defense units downed 71 of the missiles. But a glaring fact in the recent history of the Syrian war is that one year ago the Trump administration fired a salvo of cruise missiles for the same ostensible goal, and that attack evidently failed to have much, if any, deterrent effect on Assad. Those norms have been relevant to far more death and destruction than anything involving chemical weapons.

Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia accused the West of "hooliganism" and demanded that it "immediately end its actions against Syria and refrain from them in the future". Russian Federation and Iran have contributed to the discord and chaos in Syria, providing a shelter for Assad to continue his bad chemical weapons attacks, it said.

As the sun rose, hundreds had gathered in Damascus' landmark Omayyad Square, celebrating what they said was the army's success in foiling the U.S-led military action.

The government certainly had enough advance notice.

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.

"By working together, in a coordinated fashion, we can definitively prevent the Syrian regime from carrying out chemical attacks against its own people", Mr Macron said on Twitter.

Trump and Putin have been engaged in something of a rhetorical arms race over weapons systems and their capabilities, with Putin boasting of new hypersonic nuclear missiles and high-speed submarines before the recent Russian elections.

Speaking to The Associated Press from rebel-held northern Syria, he said they were unlikely to curb the government's ability to produce such weapons or launch new attacks.

"Right now this is a one-time shot, and I believe it has sent a very strong message to dissuade him, to deter him from doing it again", Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said of Assad, although Trump suggested there might be more to come.

IHS Jane's expert Karl Dewey, said the scientific research facility on the northeastern edge of Damascus is thought to have integrated chemical payloads onto artillery.

In Washington, a senior administration official said that "while the available information is much greater on the chlorine use, we do have significant information that also points to sarin use" in the attack.

"We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", Trump said in a televised address to the nation from the White House on Friday night.
