Syrian state TV described the strikes as a "flagrant violation" of worldwide law.

"We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences", he said.

- General Dunford described the operation as a "one-time shot", and said no additional attacks were planned, but added that the powers that had signed the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had every reason to challenge Syrian President Bashar Assad if he chose to violate it.

Russian Federation and Iran, supporters of the Assad regime, condemned the strikes.

The strikes early on Saturday came in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack in the former rebel stronghold of Douma last weekend. "They are crimes of a monster instead", Trump said.

Syrian news outlet Al-Masdar News reported cruise missiles struck rural Damascus and caused explosions at Dumayr Airbase. A second witness said the Barzah district of Damascus had been hit in the strikes. The attack destroyed a building that includes a learning centre and laboratories, Syrian TV said.

US, British and French air forces launched missiles early Saturday morning to several military and civilian facilities around Damascus and in the provinces of Homs and Aleppo. Russian air defences based in Syria were not used, the ministry said.

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.

British Team Sky rider Geraint Thomas was also forced to abandon the race after crashing on the first section of cobbles. They revealed he died late on Sunday in a hospital in the northern French city of Lille, surrounded by his family.

But the US, United Kingdom and France all expressed confidence that chlorine gas and a nerve agent were used in the April 7 attack, and that Assad's forces were behind it.

Syria and Russian Federation have both denied using chemical weapons and said the claims were fabrications used to justify Western military action.

Trump warned Assad that the US was prepared to "sustain" its strikes on the Syrian government, but also said that "America does not seek an indefinite presence in Syria".

If the red line banning the use of chemical weapons was crossed again, there would be another intervention, he said, while adding: "I think the lesson will have been learnt".

Russia's ambassador to the United States warned that there would be consequences for the US-led military strikes, adding that it was not acceptable to insult Russia's president.

In a combined operation, the US, Britain and France today launched military strikes against Bashar al-Assad's Syrian regime, President Donald Trump announced, as he alleged the war-torn nation of using chemical weapons against its own people. Trump's entire address on Syria airstrikesDuring his address, he also called into question the responsibilities Russian Federation and Iran have to protect innocent people.

Other strikes targeted an army depot near Homs.

A USA -led attack on Syria will be seen as limited if it is now over and there is no second round of strikes, said a senior official in the regional alliance that has supported President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian war.
