Fox News reported that USA military strikes would "go forward in Syria" and said the decision was made by Trump on the evening of April 13.

In a statement released early Saturday morning, Putin denounced the strikes as an "act of aggression" that would have a "destructive influence on the entire system of worldwide relations".

The Security Council will hold an emergency meeting at 4 p.m. Saturday.

Naval and air forces from the three countries struck three primary targets, including a chemical weapons research facility outside Damascus and a weapons storage facility near Homs, General Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters.

The move comes after days of warnings by the USA president to the Assad regime and its supporter, the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?" Russian Federation must decide if they will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace. "But it is equally important for us to be aware of the distraction tactics that some of the actors in the world are using today and to not allow those tactics to work".

He criticized Russia's support of the Syrian regime saying "Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path".

"Strikes by US, France and United Kingdom make it clear that Syrian regime together with Russia & Iran can not continue this human tragedy, at least not without cost", he tweeted. It is said that only a tiny percent of those have been killed from chemical strike as the vast majority has been killed by regime bombs, bullets and barrel bombs.

"We are not looking for confrontation and refuse any logic of escalation, that is the reason why we, with our allies, ensured the Russians were warned beforehand", Parly said. "The US - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries".

"Never said when an attack on Syria would take place".

"First the "Arab spring" tested the Syrian people, then Islamic State, now smart American rockets".

A pro-Syrian official said the Government in Damascus was still assessing the damage, but that advance warning from Russian Federation allowed the timely evacuation of the targeted sites. "You need to be really exceptional to shell Syria's capital at the moment when it had gained a chance of a peaceful future".

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader, branded Donald Trump, Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron "criminals" following the joint military operation.

And he says the U.S.is "prepared to sustain this effort if necessary".

Syrian television reported that Syria's air defenses, which are substantial, responded to the attack. Pentagon officials said Friday night that Syrian forces returned fire with surface-to-air missiles, but initial assessments were that allied forces suffered no losses. Trump called the mission "accomplished".

Iran warned of "regional consequences" on Saturday following a wave of punitive strikes in Syria by the United States, Britain and France. We can not purge the world of evil or act everywhere there is tyranny. "Everybody's going to pay a price".

Trump told the nation in his address the USA "cannot purge the world of evil or act everywhere there is tyranny".

A total of 100 cruise and air-to-surface missiles were launched at targets in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry stated, noting that two United States warships carried out the attack from the Red Sea, as well as tactical aviation over the Mediterranean Sea and B-1B bombers from al-Tanf area. Arab governments which oppose President Bashar al Assad, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, expressed approval, while popular reaction in some Arab capitals appeared to be mixed.

"The aggression is a flagrant violation of global law, a breach of the worldwide community's will, and it is doomed to fail", said state news agency SANA.
