She said: "This persistent pattern of behaviour must be stopped - not just to protect innocent people in Syria from the horrific deaths and casualties caused by chemical weapons but also because we can not allow the erosion of the worldwide norm that prevents the use of these weapons".
Syrian state TV said three civilians were wounded in Homs after "several" missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defense systems.
At least six loud explosions were heard in Damascus in the early hours of Saturday and smoke was seen rising over the Syrian capital, a Reuters witness said.
McKenzie, a Marine Corps general, said he has no reports of civilian casualties following the U.S. -led strikes and that the attacks overnight Friday were launched from U.S., France and United Kingdom aircraft and ships, including those in the Red Sea and eastern Mediterranean Sea.
On April 7th, the regime made a decision to again defy the norms of civilized people, showing callous disregard for global law by using chemical weapons to murder women, children and other innocents.

As Saturday morning broke, hundreds of Syrian people came out to the streets in Damascus to defy, condemn a joint US, British and French attack earlier at dawn.
However, nearly a week on, the United States and some European countries have failed to provide any evidence, he said. The attacks were centered on three targets: a research facility and a warehouse near Damascus, and a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs. The United States has an important national interest in averting a worsening catastrophe in Syria, and specifically deterring the use and proliferation of chemical weapons. "Every American, and particularly our men and women in uniform and their families, deserve far better than action without debate, accountability, and a Constitutionally-required authorization for the use of military force", he said.
The US was also anxious that the strikes would prompt a confrontation with Syria's biggest military ally: Russian Federation.
At an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting Saturday, the USA envoy said the U.S.is "locked and loaded" if the Syrian regime is "foolish enough to test our will".
They "are responsible for the regional consequences of this adventurist action", it said, condemning a "clear violation of worldwide rules and laws".
The attack also drew criticism from many of Trump's most ardent supporters in the US. She said she had authorized British action after intelligence showed Assad's government was to blame for gassing the Damascus suburb of Douma a week ago.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
