Haley added in televised remarks that imminent sanctions would target Russian firms taht supplied the Assad regime with chemical weapons.
On April 13, the US launched more than 100 missiles positions of the Assad regime and allied Iranian militias in response to the Assad chemical attack on Douma, the last rebel-held enclave in eastern Ghouta.
