Western powers blamed President Bashar al-Assad, but Syria and its ally Russian Federation categorically denied the claims and accused the West of "fabricating" the incident to justify military action.

"Russia severely condemns the attack on Syria where Russian military are helping the lawful government in the fight with terrorism", the Kremlin said in a statement, its first reaction to the strikes.

"Today, the nations of Britain, France, and the United States of America have marshalled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality", Trump said. "It was something far bigger", said British-born Syrian journalist Danny Makki from his home in the capital.

The former missile base was assessed to have been used by the Syrian regime to "keep chemical weapon precursors stockpiled in breach of Syria's obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention", the MoD said in a statement.

But Vassily Nebenzia, Russia's ambassador to the United Nations, accused Western powers on Friday of using the alleged attack as a pretense to oust Assad and to check Russia's power, telling the United Nations security council that Russia would consider such a strike a "breach of worldwide law". A USA official told Reuters that Tomahawk cruise missiles also were involved.

US, British and French air forces launched missiles early Saturday morning to several military and civilian facilities around Damascus and in the provinces of Homs and Aleppo. The missiles had been shot down in the Kiswah area south of the capital Damascus, it said.

May said while the strike was targeted at Syria, it sent a message to anyone who used chemical weapons.

There were no details on non-civilian casualties. They said a chemical weapons research facility, a sarin gas warehouse and another chemical weapons storage facility were the targets for the airstrikes. At the time, the Pentagon claimed that a fifth of Syria's operational aircraft were either damaged or destroyed.

Russian Federation on Saturday called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council as Moscow said it would consider supplying S-300 missile systems to Syria following US-led strikes.
