Russian Federation says U.S. will want dialogue after Syria strikes: agencies

US readies response to Syria attacks after UN clash with Russia

The Russian embassy in USA wasted no time in reacting to the strikes late Friday in the US, with Ambassador Anatoly Antonov saying on Twitter, "The worst apprehensions have come true".

President Vladimir Putin said that the military action launched by the us, in cooperation with Britain and France, was "an act of aggression" against a sovereign state and strongly condemned the act.

Russian Federation has meanwhile taken to stronger and stronger warnings.

"You don't rush decisions like this", Haley told reporters, adding that if there is haste "you make a mistake".

The Pentagon said the strikes targeted a research centre in Damascus and a chemical weapons storage facility and command post west of Homs. The Kremlin's ambassador to Beirut vowed that Russian forces would try to shoot down any U.S. missiles.

Macron said Thursday on French national television France has proof that the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and has crossed a line that could prompt French airstrikes.

Russian Federation has labeled the coordinated strikes on Syria by the U.S., France, and Britain "unacceptable and lawless" - while warning of serious consequences. "A lack of accountability emboldens those who would use such weapons by providing them with the reassurance of impunity", the secretary-general said.

The United Nations says more than 133,000 people were estimated to have fled in four weeks from the Syrian enclave of eastern Ghouta. Erdogan did not elaborate.

Separately, Russia's Defence Ministry said the majority of missiles fired during the overnight attack on Syria by U.S., British and French forces were intercepted by Syrian government air defence systems, TASS news agency reported. "Our warnings have been left unheard", the statement said.

Albania's Foreign Ministry said Le Drian canceled a trip there planned Friday "due to global developments in the security field".

The allies of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were eager on Friday to lay blame for the crisis not with him but with Trump. Syria's government denies responsibility.

"The use of chemical weapons by anyone, anywhere, under any circumstances is illegal and utterly reprehensible", Mr Turnbull said.

Yildirim on Friday again condemned the "heinous" the attack in Douma and said the perpetrators should "pay a price".

Tensions before the strikes were high, as the potential of the USA or its allies hitting Russian forces could lead to an escalation of the conflict. Eight countries voted against the Russian draft - the US, UK, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Kuwait, Poland and Ivory Coast. Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security. Moscow alleged soon after the suspected April 7 attack that the images of the victims in Douma were fakes.
