It prompted President Donald Trump to order a missile strike on an airfield held by the regime.
In a phone call with Syrian President Bashar Assad, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called the strike on Friday a "blatant violation" of Syrian sovereignty, Syrian state media reported. "And that's key." She then claimed on CNN's State of the Union that the problem wasn't so much Syrian children but the "Syrian adults" who take them to the U.S. President Trump had spoken out during his election campaign against USA military intervention, and had been keen to fix relations with Russian Federation, whose president Vladimir Putin backs the Assad regime.

In his first televised interview, H.R. McMaster pointed to dual USA goals of defeating the Islamic State group and removing Assad. The strike was the first time American forces targeted a Syrian government installation in the course of the war.

Most recently, Haley condemned the country's silence over Assad's chemical attack.
Putin said that the USA missile attacks were an "unacceptable move" which strengthens the terrorists.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Sunday played down concerns of a rift with Russian Federation over Ankara's support for the strike, saying Turkey was committed to the cease-fire mechanisms it has developed with Russian Federation for Syria. Turkey provides military support to some of Syria's opposition forces. In January 2016, the OPCW announced that all chemical weapons in Syria had been destroyed.
"We want to continue our efforts with Russian Federation in the Astana process in terms of measures to increase trust and establish a cease-fire", he told reporters in Antalya, according to the Anadolu state news agency.
