Iran warned of "regional consequences" on Saturday following a wave of punitive strikes in Syria by the United States, Britain and France.

It noted that the alert was also in place due to the increasing possibility of a U.S. missile attack on military positions in Syria following allegations of a chemical attack carried out by the Syrian regime in the city of Douma in Eastern Ghouta. They are crimes of a monster instead. A statement published by the official news agency expressed support for strikes to stop attacks by the Syrian regime against civilians. Second, the timing of Israel's strike this week came on the heels of the Assad regime's chemical weapons attack in Eastern Ghouta and rampant anticipation that an American response was imminently forthcoming.

The United States and European allies launched airstrikes on Saturday against Syrian research, storage and military targets under the pretext of a suspected chemical attack near Damascus last weekend that killed more than 40 people.

Perhaps Israel took advantage of the chaos created by the chemical gas attack in Douma to strike the air base used by the Revolutionary Guards near Damascus. This complicated situation will be against US interests.

"Syria also serves as a base to carry out such action, namely on behalf of Iran, endangering its territory, its forces and its leadership", the official added.

US, France, Britain launch strikes on Syria, says Trump
The taunts were a clear retort to Trump calling Assad an "animal" in tweets following the suspected chemical weapons attack. Meanwhile French President Emmanuel Macron , said in a statement, The red lines set by France in May 2017 has been crossed.

In a statement, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said the US and its allies "will assume the responsibility for the regional and trans-regional consequences of this adventurism". Trump asked in his address before ordering the airstrike on Syriam chemical weapons sites.

By launching strikes without prior approval from parliament, May dispensed with a non-binding constitutional convention dating back to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

The Syrian defense minister, for his part, said that such criminal attacks will not weaken the Syrian nation's will to eliminate terrorists in the country.

US President Donald Trump, along with British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron authorised precision air-launched cruise missile strikes against Syria on Saturday to degrade its chemical weapons capability, saying there was no alternative to military action. Russia's initial fear may have been that Israel was acting on behalf of the punish Assad for his chlorine and sarin gas attack, and outing Israel and warning the US was about Russian Federation establishing its own red line with regard to the American, rather than Israeli, actions in Syria.
