New Western air strikes in Syria would provoke "chaos" in global relations, Russian President Vladimir Putin told his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, on Sunday.

The Pentagon also says none of the missiles filed by the US and its allies was deflected by Syrian air defenses, rebutting claims by the Russian and Syrian governments.

The Government said the United Kingdom is allowed under worldwide law "on an exceptional basis" to take measures to end "overwhelming humanitarian suffering" if certain conditions have been met.

The alleged attack, which Damascus and its Russian ally have denied ever happened, prompted an unprecedented wave of missile strikes by the United States, France and Britain on Saturday.

And if there is, "I would condemn it like I would condemn any human being and there is nothing to justify taking a person's soul or killing anybody", said Father Sabbagh.

"The legal basis. would have to be self defence or the authority of the UN Security Council. The humanitarian intervention is a legally debatable concept at the present time", he said in an interview with the BBC on Sunday.

Western powers have no plans for further missile strikes on Syria but will assess their options if Damascus uses chemical weapons again, Britain's Foreign Minister says, as debate rages over the legality and effectiveness of the strikes.

What's unclear is where that red line now stands.

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.

Haley also repeated her comment Saturday, at an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council, that the USA remains "locked and loaded".

The Russian military had vowed to respond to any attack, and President Vladimir Putin's administration had repeatedly warned Trump was taking America down a unsafe path.

- American Forces deployed B-1B Lancer bombers for last night's strike and used double the number of weapons than in a 2017 missile strike responding to the Khan Shaykhun chemical attack. But neither Russian Federation nor Iran appears to have lost men or military kit in the strike.

"Every city in the Middle East that has a water purification system probably has some chlorine. We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents". "We'll watch his actions".

The Syrian regime had a pattern of using chemical weapons against the chemical weapons convention, alleged the Pentagon Chief Spokesperson Dana White. "That's why you saw the president strike this past weekend, that's why you saw him expel 60 Russian spies after the attack in Salisbury", she said, referring to the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter with a nerve agent on British soil last month.

He did not rule out sarin use.
