A survivor of a Syrian gas attack in 2013 now living in the U.S.as a refugee thanked President Donald Trump on Saturday for "showing true leadership and bravery" in Friday's strike on Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons operations.

"The time for talking ended last night", Haley said, noting that the strike, which was a joint effort of the U.S., France, and the United Kingdom, was strictly done "to deter the future use of chemical weapons by holding the Syrian regime responsible for its atrocities against humanity".

The US Ambassador to United Nations also used the occasion to defend the usage of the words "mission accomplished", by the US President Donald Trump after he ordered the military on Friday to launch airstrikes on three sites in Syria.

She spoke after the US led an air-and-sea missile attack overnight Friday on the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, in response to his purported March 7 chemical attack on civilians, in the country's years-long civil war.

U.S. envoy Haley also said that if Trump draws the red line, he enforces it and the USA will continue to sustain pressure on Syria.

The Him Shinshar chemical weapons bunker facility, located more than 4 miles (7 km) from the storage facility, was struck by seven Scout missiles.

An anonymous source told Channel Two, "the attack will allow the Americans to say, "We did what was necessary" and leave Syria". In 2017, the US launched missiles against Syria following reports of a sarin gas attack.

The U.N. Security Council overwhelmingly rejected a Russian resolution calling for condemnation of "aggression" by the United States, Britain and France against Syria on Saturday, a vote reflecting support for the allied airstrikes on Syrian chemical sites.
