New satellite imagery shows extensive damage to targets hit by Saturday's US-led airstrikes in Syria، where three sites were reduced to rubble as Donald Trump، Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron responded to a chemical attack by the Assad regime which killed 75 people، Dailymail reported.

The images taken on Saturday show extensive missile damage to the facilities believed to be involved with Syria's chemical weapons program، with two facilities decimated in Homs and the Bazrah Research Center، a scientific research center on the outskirts of Damascus، also hit by a barrage of missiles.

It comes as Vladimir Putin warned of 'consequences' after the US، UK and France co-ordinated the military action، condemning Saturday's strikes as an 'act of aggression' that will worsen the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria and have a 'destructive influence on the entire system of international relations.

But Trump has vowed to carry out further airstrikes on Syria if the regime dares to use chemical weapons again، while UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson defended Britain's decision to stand up to 'barbarism' amid criticism of Mrs May for acting without a vote in the House of Commons.

Putin criticized Washington and its allies for attacking without waiting for inspectors from the international chemical weapons watchdog group to visit Douma، just outside Damascus، saying Russian military experts had found no trace of the attack.

A Russian motion in the UN Security Council to condemn the airstrikes was rejected with only China and Bolivia joining Russia to vote in favour، as U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley promised the country was ready for another strike if Assad crossed the chemical weapons 'red line' in the future.
