The administration of President Donald Trump is ready to take further military action in Syria, but hopes it will not be necessary, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said at a UN Security Council meeting on Friday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On Thursday night, the United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha’irat, located about 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the city of Homs. US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Syria’s Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on the Syrian government.

“The United States took a very measured step last night,” Haley stated, referring to missile strikes the United States undertook against an airbase in Syria on Thursday. “We are prepared to do more, but we hope that will not be necessary.”

Russia described the attack as an aggression against a sovereign state.

Following the US military action, Russia decided to suspend its memorandum of understanding on air safety over Syria with the United States, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry.
