The Pentagon said Saturday that the USA -led allied missile strikes in Syria successfully hit all three targets and have "significantly crippled" Syrian President Bashar Assad's ability to make more chemical weapons.

"We will not stand by passively while Assad, backed by Russian Federation and Iran, ignores global law", White said.

Trump had tweeted a similar statement last Sunday, saying that Russian Federation and Iran are responsible for backing Assad's regime.

On Friday, in the heat of an ongoing debate over the scale of USA strikes, Trump phoned Cohen to check in, a person familiar with the call said.

In the aftermath of air strikes launched on Syrian soil by United States President Donald Trump, French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has claimed that a "large part" of the Damascus government's arsenal "has been destroyed".

Pentagon officials said the attacks targeted the heart of Assad's programs to develop and produce chemical weapons.

"We are confident that all of our missiles reached their targets", McKenzie added.

Trump's deliberations this week over how to respond to the deadly chemical attack occurred at a tenuous moment for his presidency, with the special counsel's investigation winding its way further into the President's inner circle and many of Trump's trusted aides rushing for the exits.

Syria said the strikes failed to achieve their goal and breached global law.
