U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told a tense United Nations assembly on Friday that America would indeed take more action in Syria, if necessary.
“The United States took a very measured step last night,” she said, referring to President Donald Trump’s ordered missile strikes against a Syrian airbase. “We are prepared to do more, but we hope that will not be necessary.”
The U.S. attack came after a chemical weapons attack on Syrian citizens left more than 70 dead, including women and children. America and the United Nations said the chemical weapons were unleashed by Syria’s president, Bashar Assad. But Assad and Russia both denied that and said the chemicals were unleashed during an air strike against a rebel facility that was used to make the weapons.
Meanwhile, Russia has come out swinging against the U.S. strike.
From the Hill:
“The U.S. military response was hailed by many world leaders, while Russia, a staunch Assad ally, condemned the attack as an act of ‘aggression.’
“Russia called the emergency Security Council meeting on Friday, where the country’s U.N. representative, Vladimir Safronkov, blasted the U.S. attack and accused the U.S. of aiding terrorist groups in Syria.
“‘It’s not difficult to imagine the spirits of these terrorists have been raised after the support from Washington,’ Safronkov said.”
