Turkey says US strikes 'cosmetic' if Assad stays in power

  • President Donald Trump speaks at Mar-a Lago in Palm Beach after the US fired a barrage of cruise missiles into Syria

Residents of the Syrian town devastated by a chemical-weapons attack last week said that warplanes had returned to bomb them Saturday as Turkey described a retaliatory USA assault as "cosmetic" unless it removed President Bashar Assad from power.

British foreign secretary Boris Johnson cancelled a planned trip to Russian Federation on Monday because the situation in Syria has changed "fundamentally" following the chemical attack and the U.S. response.

The US has fired dozens of cruise missiles at Syria in revenge for a chemical weapons attack - despite a warning from Russian Federation not to get involved.

Haley's remarks come just a day after she warned that the United States was prepared to take further actions in Syria during a special session at the UN following a U.S. military strike against a Syrian air base.

President Donald Trump's top national security adviser said Sunday that Russian Federation should be pressed on whether it knew the Syrian regime would carry out a deadly chemical attack against civilians in a rebel-held area last week.

"We don't see a peaceful Syria with Assad in there", she said.

The United States is prepared to "do more" if necessary in Syria, US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Sunday.

Elsewhere in Syria, activists opposed to ISIL said a US-led coalition airstrike hit a boat carrying civilians fleeing across the Euphrates.

"Rest assured that we will liberate Syria from all kinds of occupying forces, it does not matter from where they came to the occupied part of Syria", the statement warned.

Earlier this year, Assad said that the country's government had never used weapons of mass destruction, including chemical weapons, against the Syrian people.

Members of Trump's administration have hinted that the U.S.is not done intervening in Syria.

Syria officially relinquished its chemical arsenal and signed the Chemical Weapons Convention in 2013 to avert military action after it was accused of an attack outside Damascus that killed hundreds.

"The first priority for them was to cover for Assad", she added.

"We conducted strikes against an air field which was the means by which the chemicals were launched into the air".

"It's time for (Russian President) Vladimir Putin to face the truth about the tyrant he is propping up", Johnson said, according to a foreign ministry spokeswoman.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said the strikes had left the U.S. "on the verge of military clashes with Russia".
