THE Syrian army said in a statement that six soldiers were killed by USA missile strike that targeted a Syrian air base in central Syria on Friday.
US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapons use in Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on Damascus.
"We hope for more strikes. that these are just the beginning", spokesman Ahmad Ramadan told AFP news agency. "There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the UN Security Council".
The Pentagon added the strike "was meant to deter the regime from using chemical weapons again". Peskov, speaking days after a suspected chemical weapons attack, says Russia's support for Syrian President Bashar Assad is not unconditional. This is how Britain's most high-profile politicians have reacted to the move. "It sends a strong message to the Assad regime, and. has been struck at the very airfield from which the chemical attack was delivered", Turnbull said.
"Vladimir Putin believes that complete disregard for factual information about the use by terrorists of chemical weapons drastically aggravates the situation", it said in a statement.
Defence Secretary Michael Fallon was keen to stress, though, that the attack was not the beginning of an worldwide campaign as seen in other troubled Middle Eastern countries like Iraq.
"This strike was very limited to one airfield, it was entirely appropriate, it's created to deter the regime from carrying out further chemical weapons attacks".
"We've not been asked to be involved in this, this was not a matter for the coalition that's in Syria and Iraq fighting Daesh", Fallon added.
"I would tell you that the response from our allies, as well as the region and the Middle East has been overwhelmingly supportive of the action we taken", Tillerson said.
