USA troops not leaving Syria until goals accomplished: Haley

New U.S. sanctions against Russian Federation are coming as soon as Monday to punish the country for its support of the Syrian regime, Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Sunday.

USA ambassador to the United Nations discusses US -led strikes on the Assad regime in retaliation for suspected chemical weapons attack, future of US policy toward Syria, Russia and Iran.

The United States has warned Syria's government that it is "locked and loaded" to strike again if Damascus carries out chemical attacks.

United Nations chemical weapons inspectors who arrived in Syria at the weekend have promised to investigate what happened in Douma despite the air strikes against chemical weapons installations. "We have to be conscious of the fact that we can't allow even the smallest use of chemical weapons".

Celebrating his crushing victory over rebels in Douma, Eastern Ghouta, where the suspected chemical attack took place, Assad was said to be in a "good mood" today.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime was suspected of orchestrating a chlorine attack, which occurred on April 7.

"They will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use".

In northern Syria, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said an explosion rocked an area where pro-government Iranian fighters and allied Shi'ite militias were based.

British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said that the legal basis used to support the British role was debatable, adding that he would only support action backed by the UN Security Council. Corbyn said in an interview with the BBC.

Here are statements from some Congressional Leaders regarding the United State's joining France and Great Britain in conducting these attacks. But they have refrained from targeting Assad's government, apart from a volley of USA missiles a year ago.

She listed three main aims for the USA: ensuring that chemical weapons are not used in any way that pose a risk to USA interests, that Daesh is defeated and that there is a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing, speaking on Fox News.

Sarin had previously appeared to be the threshold for intervention. "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message, and our hope is that they listen to it", she told CBS News on Sunday.

The Pentagon has said the strikes successfully hit the three chemical weapons facilities which were targeted.
