A day before, defending the USA strikes on a Syrian air base suspected of using chemical weapons, Haley warned the Assad regime of more strikes if it did not stop using chemical weapons against innocent civilians.

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

He added, "Neutral countries should investigate the issue and make it clear where the chemical weapons had come from and by whom and also whether there were chemical weapons".

Near the central city of Homs, a bomb exploded aboard a bus carrying workers, killing a woman and wounding more than 20, according to state TV and the Observatory.

Two U.S. Navy destroyers launched 59 tomahawk missiles into Syria late last Thursday to destroy an airbase controlled by the Bashar al-Assad regime. The Syrian government has denied it was behind the attack.

Hundreds of Palestinians jailed in Israel go on hunger strike
A Palestinian Authority official said that the "strike was called for by Fatah leader and prominent prisoner Marwan Barghouti". On Monday, the Israeli Foreign Ministry complained that jailed Palestinians should not be described as "political prisoners".

Donald Trump spoke by telephone with Saudi Arabia's King Salman about the strikes, the Saudi Press Agency said on Saturday.

Haley on Friday told a special session of the UN Security Council that the U.S. was "prepared to do more" in Syria and that it was Washington's "vital national interest" to stop the use and spread of chemical weapons.

"We've seen what that looks like, when you undertake a violent regime change in Libya, and the situation in Libya continues to be very chaotic", he said. For that to happen, he said, "this oppressive Assad needs to go".

Haley again took a swipe at Russian Federation for failing to rein in its ally and said Moscow must reconsider its support for Assad.

"Terrorists must not be allowed to use such weapons to accuse others and pave the way for actions that are contrary to global law", said Rouhani. After all, Russian Federation - a parter and supporter of Assad - made claims that regime bombs hit chemical weapon depots operated by Syrian rebels and even that the entire attack was staged.

The South Carolina Republican also wants additional penalties imposed on Russia for what he calls Moscow's "aiding and abetting" of Syrian President Bashar Assad (bah-SHAR' AH'-sahd) in the use of chemical weapons - and for Russian meddling in the 2016 American election.

Johnson had been due to hold talks with Sergey Lavrov, his counterpart as Russian foreign minister, after flying out on Sunday.

In Damascus, dozens of Syrian students gathered outside the offices of the United Nations to protest against the U.S. missile attack.

"The entire administration was in agreement that this was something that had to be done", Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said on NBC's "Meet the Press".
