USA missile attack on Syria captured in stunning Pentagon video

Trump allies praise Syria strikes as Moscow seethes

Assad denounced a "campaign of deceit and lies at the (United Nations) Security Council" after a push by Moscow on Saturday to condemn the strikes fell far short.

"Yesterday we were faced with an American aggression. This time our allies and we have struck harder", Mattis said.

As vehicle horns blared, the crowd moved toward nearby Damascus University where pro-government fighters danced and waved their automatic rifles over their heads.

President Donald Trump on Monday spoke out about the USA -led attack on chemical facilities in Syria, praising the military and it's allies for the "mission accomplished".

The attack killed at least 40 people and wounded or sickened hundreds of others. Its recapture marks the biggest victory for Assad's forces since the capture of the eastern half of the city of Aleppo in 2016.

Government forces and Russian troops have been deployed in Douma, which is now controlled by the Syrian government.

Haley said the joint military strike "put a heavy blow into their chemical weapons program, setting them back years" and reiterated that if Assad uses poison gas again, "the United States is locked and loaded". No word yet on whether Trump will take him up on his offer, but they may be talking over another form of refreshment since the president does not drink alcohol.

Shortly after the one-hour attack ended, vehicles with loudspeakers blared nationalist songs.

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

Eid now lives in the US and is working on a memoir.

The widely broadcast celebrations and the hastily organized police deployment in Douma appeared to be the government's response to the airstrikes.

Iran, which has also backed Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad since the conflict began in 2011, also warned of "regional consequences".

"A perfectly executed strike last night", he tweeted.

The sanctions are the latest effort by the United States to punish the Assad regime and its allies for a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians two weeks ago.

Syria has repeatedly denied using banned weapons.

French President Emmanuel Macron, however, on Sunday told a French television network that he had "convinced him that it's necessary to be there...we also convinced him that the strikes had to be limited to chemical weapons capabilities". Without nuclear weapons, North Korean officials worry the USA could use the same humanitarian justification to intervene in North Korea.

Photos of the missile strike launched by the USA, the United Kingdom, and France on targets in Syria on Friday night appear to show the Syrian defenses firing blindly in a wild and most likely failed attempt to intercept the missiles.

But Russia and Syria begged to differ, saying missile defenses took out 71 of the 105 missiles fired.

The US, UK, and France hit three targets in the Damascus suburbs around 9pm EDT on Friday using aircraft and cruise missiles launched from ships. He said the USA knew of no civilians killed by allied missiles.

"According to preliminary information, there were no victims among peaceful civilians and the Syrian military", senior military officer Sergei Rudskoi said at a briefing in Moscow.

Trump had said Friday that the USA is "prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents". An official there said the facility was used by the chemical and pharmaceutical industries and helped develop cancer drugs.

A senior Russian diplomat has said inspectors from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog can not access the site of an alleged chemical attack near the Syrian capital without an appropriate United Nations permit.

By August 2014, the chemical weapons previously turned over by Syria had been destroyed.

Russian Federation and Iran called the use of force a "military crime" and "act of aggression".

The three allies circulated a joint draft resolution at the Security Council that also calls for unimpeded deliveries of humanitarian aid, enforcing a ceasefire and demands that Syria engage in UN-led peace talks.

Associated Press writers Sarah El Deeb and Zeina Karam in Beirut, and Amir Vahdat in Tehran, contributed.
