Israel has mounted air strikes in Syria on a regular basis, targeting suspected weapons shipments to Hezbollah.

Confirming the airstrikes on Syria, Trump said the attacks are a "direct result" of Russia's failure to keep Syria's Assad from using chemical weapons, news agency ANI reported.

"The attack this morning against Syria is a crime", he said.

The Kremlin on Saturday condemned Western air strikes on Syria where its armed forces are backing President Bashar al-Assad.

"We were expecting at least more airfields, ground force and naval bases to come under attack", said Arash Aramesh, a national security and foreign policy analyst.

Ankara said the attacks, with weapons of mass destruction, including chemical weapons, that indiscriminately target civilians, "constitute crimes against humanity" and they should not go unpunished.

"Russia condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack against Syria, where Russian military personnel are assisting the legitimate government in its counterterrorism efforts", Putin said in a statement.

Iran is the key backer alongside Russian Federation of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, providing military advisors and "volunteer" ground forces.

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

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.

US President Donald Trump said he was prepared to sustain the response until Assad's government stopped its use of chemical weapons.

The presence of Russian troops and air defenses in Syria were among numerous complications weighing on Trump, who must also consider the dangers to roughly 2,000 American troops in the country if Russia were to retaliate for US strikes. Dunford said "normal deconfliction channel was used to deconflict airspace" with Moscow, but that the United States did not share with Russian Federation what sites would be targeted.

"The conditions do not point to a total war... unless [US President Donald] Trump and [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu completely lose their minds", he added.
