The Syrian government responded with defiance Saturday following President Trump's decision to take military action against chemical weapons production facilities in Syria, describing the attack as an "aggression" that would fail.
Opposition parties have attacked Mrs May's refusal to recall Parliament last week, accusing her of bypassing Westminster to fit in with Donald Trump's timetable and risking a further escalation of tensions with Russian Federation.
Following coordinated air strikes by the U.S., Britain and France against Assad's chemical weapons infrastructure Friday night, Haley relayed to the U.N. Security Council on Saturday that the U.S. was "locked and loaded" should Assad use poison gas on his own people again.
He also said that despite Syria's commitment in 2013 to destroying its chemical arsenal - and Russia's promise to supervise to it - "the Assad Regime and Russian Federation has made a complete mockery of that pledge".
Putin told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, also an Assad ally, that any new Western strikes in Syria would provoke "chaos in global relations". The Observatory said the cause of the explosion was unknown, as well as its target.
Among the contentious proposals, it would establish an independent investigation into allegations of toxic gas attacks in Syria with the aim of identifying the perpetrators.On the humanitarian side, the measure demands medical evacuations and safe passage for aid convoys to be allowed to all areas.Diplomats said it remained unclear when the council would vote on the proposal, and they were ready to allow time for negotiations to bring Russian Federation aboard.Just before dawn on Saturday, the sounds of massive explosions and the roar of warplanes rang out across Damascus for about 45 minutes.
Iran also issued strong statements early Saturday condemning the strikes. Iran's Supreme Leader called the attack a crime and the country's Revolutionary Guard Corps said it gave "the resistance a more open hand", although it did not threaten to retaliate.

"I see desperation. I see cynicism", he said. "Use often!" he tweeted.
"If the previous attack was a slap on the wrist, this is perhaps a slap on the face but nothing that destabilizes the Assad regime in any fundamental way", said Ayham Kamel, head of Middle East and North Africa research at Eurasia Group.
Haley said Assad was making the use of chemical weapons "more normal and that Russian Federation was covering this up, all that has got to stop". "Assad might have used chemical weapons this time, but he's been indiscriminately targeting civilians for years".
"They 100 percent met their objective".
"When it comes to this use of chemical weapons, it is clear to Canada that chemical weapons were used and that they were used by the Assad regime", Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Friday. "We hope that will be the case".
· Russian Federation reported that the Syrian air defense systems intercepted around 70 of the missiles that had been fired towards the targets in Syria but the United States chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford said he was aware of no initial losses.
May will address Parliament - where she doesn't have a majority - next week. But the U.S. Department of Defense said on Saturday that none of the missiles were downed.
