The United States, France and Britain fired dozens of missiles early Saturday to strike at Syria's chemical weapons program - the biggest intervention yet by Western countries against Syria, which is backed by Russian Federation and Iran.

Western countries blamed Syria's government for a chemical attack on a rebel-held area earlier this month that killed more than 40 people.

The U.S., Canada and their allies have largely dismissed Damascus's denials and said the strikes were necessary, but have not said how they know that the Syrian government was responsible for the chemical-weapon attacks. He added, "So proud of our great Military which will soon be, after the spending of billions of fully approved dollars, the finest that our Country has ever had".

Both Russia and Syria continued to denounce the strikes as an illegal act of aggression.

The UK, France and the U.S. are pushing for an independent investigation into allegations that Syrian Government forces are using chemical weapons - a day after launching air strikes on the war-torn country.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told the BBC the primary objective of the attack was to "say no to the use of barbaric chemical weapons". Syria also said the strikes failed to impact the targets in Homs, but the images show extensive damage.

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, according to the text obtained by AFP.

Erdogan welcomes Syria strikes against Assad regime
President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. -led group had launched strikes on what were believed to be chemical weapons production facilities.

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said troops would not be removed until ISIS was defeated, chemical weapons no longer threatened USA interests and it could ensure the monitoring of Iranian activity. The missile strikes have drawn the ire of chief Syrian government allies, Russian Federation and Iran.

On Saturday, the United States, France and Britain launched 105 missiles targeting what the Pentagon said were three chemical weapons facilities in Syria in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack in Douma on April 7.

France, the United States and Britain circulated a draft resolution to UN Security Council late on Saturday that aims to establish a new independent inquiry into who is to responsible for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Nebenzya accused the United States, Britain, and France of "hooliganism" and of "demonstrating a blatant disregard for worldwide law".

"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line", Haley said at an emergency United Nations meeting called by Russian Federation.

"I see desperation. I see cynicism", he said. It was not clear when the visit would take place. She says the US was confident that they had "significantly degraded his ability to use chemical weapons ever again". They wish Trump had waited for inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Warfare to confirm chemical weapons were really used before he ordered the airstrikes on Syria.

The Pentagon said the strikes successfully hit the three chemical weapons facilities which were targeted.
