The IDF tweeted that the drone "was armed with explosives & was tasked to attack Israel".

Public radio said that Israel had been informed ahead of time of the strikes that were carried out by the United States, France and Britain.

"They will not benefit (from the attack) as they went to Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan in the past years and committed such crimes and did not gain any benefits", Khamenei said.

No foreign power can make decisions about the future of Syria, he pointed out.

"The Syrian Arab Republic condemns in the strongest terms the brutal American-British-French aggression against Syria, which constitutes a flagrant violation of worldwide law", the foreign ministry said.

"Such attacks will have no result but more destruction. the Americans want to justify their presence in the region by such attacks", Rouhani was quoted as saying by Tasnim.

The assertion comes after also a solid ally of Syria, Iran, this week jeopardized to respond to an airstrike to an military base which Russian Federation, the Syrian authorities and also Iran blamed Israel.

He stressed Iran's support for the Syrian nation and expressed hope for return of peace to the country in the wake of the terrorists' recent defeats in East Ghouta.

Iran's leaders vowed retaliation for the attack, but did nothing; they understand very well that the situation in Syria could become even uglier, and they would pay a heavy price.

Putin said Russian investigators have found no evidence of a chemical attack in Douma.

"A pre-designed scenario is being implemented", Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said on Twitter.

A senior Iranian official has warned Israel not to provoke Iran a day after Israel's prime minister issued a similar warning to Tehran.

It held the USA and its allies responsible for the consequences of this adventure, indicating that Tehran rejects the use of chemical weapons as well as making it as a pretext to attack a sovereign state. Sky News Arabia said that the attack targeted a storage facility used by pro-Syrian government Iranian militias in the Mount Azzan area.

He said: "The attack carried out on Syria overnight at dawn is a crime".
