Earlier this week, Trump called the chemical attack in Douma "atrocious" and vowed that those responsible would "pay a price".

Mr. Assad said the airstrikes would "only increase the determination of Syria and its people to continue fighting and crushing terrorism in every inch of the country", according to Syrian state TV.

Through the strikes, they said they "aimed to deliver clear and unambiguous message to Syrian regime, deter use of chemical weapons".

Reuters reported that the comments were made in a conversation with ally, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

In an address to the American people on Friday, Trump called out Russian Federation and Iran for supporting Assad's regime.

In the biggest foreign military action so far against Syria's regime, Western officials said a barrage of cruise and air-to-land missiles hit targets near Damascus and in Homs province including a scientific research centre, storage facilities and a command post.

Russian President Vladimir Putin condemned the airstrikes, describing them as "aggression against a sovereign state which is at the forefront of the fight against terrorism".

- In response, the Russian embassy in the United States said it had warned that such actions would "not be left without consequences", adding that insulting President Vladimir Putin was "unacceptable and inadmissible".

"America's war against Syria, and against the region's peoples and resistance movement, will not achieve its aims", the group said in a statement published on its War Media Channel.

The U.S. led airstrikes in a coordinated attack with United Kingdom and French allies against the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

The prospect of Western military action in Syria that could lead to confrontation with Russian Federation hung over the Middle East on Friday but there was no clear sign that a USA -led attack was imminent. Those aides have noted the President's daily calls with American allies and the meetings he's convened of national security officials to weigh his options.

However, the Syrian Information Ministry refuted what the Western media presented as U.S. striking 9 targets, and called on the Syrian people not to pay attention to those media reports aimed at magnifying attack. The gas attack, as claimed by him killed at least 40 people.

Russia's Foreign Ministry condemned the attack calling it a flagrant violation of global law.

The ministry said it was an "attempt to block the exposure of their lies and fabrications".
