Seven Iranian military personnel were killed in the air strike, Tasnim news agency said, nearly double the number originally reported.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russian specialists had found no trace of a chemical attack on the Syrian rebel-held town of Douma, after allegations from the worldwide community.

However, Israel has carried out numerous strikes in Syria, with some meant to stop Iran and allies including the Lebanese group Hezbollah from gaining strength near its borders.

Shi'ite-dominated Iran is Assad's main regional ally and has provided military and economic support for his conflict with a range of Sunni Muslim rebel and militant groups. The solution he offers is for "America and its allies - the EU, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Arab states - to drill home to Russian Federation that a permanent Iranian military presence in Syria is unacceptable". Earlier Iranian media reports said four personnel were killed. "His threats to repeat impulsive acts of aggression is symptomatic of USA policy helping extremists", the tweet reads.

"Syria's enemies are angry because of its military advances against terrorist groups", Velayati said.

Russian Federation has warned that U.S. strikes in Syria would have "grave consequences", according to a Foreign Ministry statement. He added that it also hit posts outside the base used by the Iranians and Iran-backed fighters.


"President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad".

"Russia wants the United States out of Syria as soon as possible, so if we have a clash and Trump retreats, Putin scores twice", he added.

Syria's state news agency says missiles have struck an air base in central Syria in the early hours of the day.

"The timing of the strike isn't coincidental", he said. They have been denied proper education, food, healthcare, and have been forced to live in basements for months to shelter from attacks. Despite all the attention this war gets from worldwide, political and humanitarian organizations, it is now more than seven years since it began - and Syria is suffering from three open wounds.

The raid came as worldwide outrage mounted over a reported chemical weapons attack on a rebel-controlled town outside the Syrian capital. It has investigated more than 70 cases of alleged toxic gas attacks in Syria since 2014.
