Haley Says US Troops Not Leaving Syria; Rules Out Talks With Assad

Smoke billows in the town of Douma in Syria's Eastern Ghouta

But the American ambassador to the OPCW claimed the Russians may have already visited the site.

The US military said the strikes "destroyed" Him Shinshar's chemical weapons storage facility, and damaged the chemical weapons bunker.

Pentagon officials and President Donald Trump on Saturday praised US airstrikes in Syria, but some locals are saying America hasn't gone far enough. The U.S. says it suspects that sarin gas also was used.

Another report, from the pro-Iranian Hezbollah militia, said that Syrian air defences had intercepted three missiles targeting Dumair military airport, north-east of the capital Damascus. "But when we have more evidence and details I will come back to you".

What is happening in Syria?

"As far as I understand what is hampering a speedy resolution of this problem is the consequences of the illegal, unlawful military action that Great Britain and other countries conducted on Saturday", said Ryabkov.

Inspectors from the global chemical weapons watchdog have been unable to access sites controlled by Russian Federation and the Syrian regime in the town of Douma to investigate an attack on 7 April that killed dozens and prompted US-led missile strikes on Friday night.

A joint United Nations-OPCW mission concluded the Syrian airforce was responsible for a sarin attack that killed almost 100 people a year ago in the town of Khan Sheikhoun. They are expected to investigate the site thoroughly, hopefully determine the culprit (s) and prevent further chemical attacks.

The Russian foreign minister says Russia did not tamper with the site of the chemical attack.

Haley says the USA military priority in Syria is to ensure Iran doesn't "take over" the country, suggesting U.S. troops would be a deterrent to that.

Speaking at a news conference in Moscow on Saturday, Rudskoy said at least 103 cruise missiles, including Tomahawks, had been fired into a number of targets in Syria.

This will give the young players confidence and good principles to stand on while preparing for game 3 on the road in Miami. ESPN reported that Embiid still must pass several more medical milestones in his recovery before he can return to action.

The attack "was a victory for Syria", former lawmaker Sharif Shehadeh said by phone from Damascus.

Syrian activists said more than 40 people were killed but Syria and Russian Federation deny the attack and Russian Federation even accused Britain of staging the attack.

The Syrian government has strongly denied the allegation, calling on OPCW to send a fact-finding mission for investigations.

Two bombs filled with chemicals were reportedly dropped several hours apart on the town.

Syria was subject to a tripartite attack by the USA, the United Kingdom and France on April 14, with the aggressors launching over 100 missiles at targets across the Arab state.

Asked whether it was a nerve agent or chlorine, he said, "We are very much aware of one of the agents".

How did the air strikes happen?

Inspectors from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog met Syrian officials in Damascus on Monday but have so far been denied access to the former rebel stronghold where the alleged use of toxic substances provoked a US -led strike. In a US military action a year ago in response to a sarin gas attack, missiles took out almost 20 percent of the Syrian air force, the Pentagon said.

The Pentagon says the strikes, made by the US, France, and the United Kingdom, took out the "heart" of Syria's chemical weapons program.

Gen. Ali Mayhoub said that the Scientific Research Center in Barzeh near Damascus was hit, while three people were injured in Homs when a missile was targeted.
