Meanwhile, the U.S. said it had drafted a new UN Security Council resolution demanding a 30-day nationwide cessation of hostilities, accusing Russian Federation of failing to ensure a ceasefire resolution passed two weeks ago was implemented.
"This is no ceasefire".
"The Syrian and Russian regimes insist that they are targeting terrorists, but their bombs and artillery continue to fall on hospitals and schools, and on innocent civilians", Haley said.
Haley compared the current situation in Syria to a period a year ago when the Syrian government's chemical weapon attacks led the U.S.to launch a missile attack against the Syrian military.
Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, warned on Monday that if the Security Council fails to act on Syria, Washington "remains prepared to act if we must", just as it did previous year when it fired missiles at a Syrian government air base over a deadly chemical weapons attack.

At least 1,162 civilians have been killed, including 241 children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
More than 13 million people inside Syria now need humanitarian assistance, more than half of whom are children, the United Nations says.
In February, Macron had promised "retaliation and an immediate response from France" if the Syrian regime was found guilty of using chemical weapons against civilians, adding it would eventually "be answerable to worldwide justice" for its crimes.
Nebenzia defended the Syrian offensive in Eastern Ghouta as a legitimate counter-terror operation.
Russian UN envoy Vasily Nebenzya fired back at the statement by Haley, stressing that Damascus has "every right to try to remove the threat to the safety of its citizens", referring to the terrorists who have entrenched themselves in East Ghouta as a "hotbed of terrorism".
Medical and humanitarian aid to Syrians has been held up, and Haley noted that more than 500 civilians have died since the ceasefire was agreed to.
"We urge all parties in the southwest de-escalation zone not to take actions that would jeopardize the ceasefire and make future cooperation more hard".
Briefing the Security Council on Monday afternoon, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said fighting had continued across Syria despite the resolution, even intensifying in the Eastern Ghouta and claiming hundreds of civilian lives.
