McKenzie emphasized that this strike was "double the size of the last strike in April 2017", which failed to successfully deter Assad's use of chemical weapons.

"I support this targeted response to Assad's horrific use of chemical weapons against his own people, and we are right to act with our allies Great Britain and France against this violation of worldwide law".

According to Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal, Islamabad "condemns the use of chemical weapons anywhere by anyone".

Syria claims to have given up its chemical weapons in 2013. "I urge the Security Council to assume its responsibilities and fill this gap. They were the result of the Syrian regime's barbaric inhumanity".

As Trump was making his White House address, large explosions were heard in the capital Damascus, with footages showing missiles streaking over the night sky in Syria.

"We thank the Croatian government for supporting the actions of the U.S, U.K and France against the use of chemical weapons", U.S. Ambassador W. Robert Kohorst said in a statement. "No local resident confirmed the chemical attack".

"We are very confident we have significantly crippled Assad's ability to produce these weapons", Chief Pentagon spokeswoman Dana W. White told reporters Saturday.

Although Syria's military had moved aircraft and other military assets in the days preceding Friday's strike, Dunford said he did not believe it had moved chemical weapons materials.

It is a sign of Moscow's attempt to try to cover up how successful the coordinated attack was and support the Assad regime.

But soon after, Secretary of Defense James Mattis gave a different assessment.

A second U.S. official said targets were being carefully selected with the aim of damaging Assad's ability to conduct further gas attacks, while avoiding the risk of spreading poisonous fallout in civilian areas.

"Establishing this deterrent is a vital national security interest of the United States".

Trump, meanwhile, also addressed the governments of Iran and Russian Federation, both of which support Assad.

"I also have a message tonight for the two governments most responsible for supporting, equipping and financing the criminal Assad regime", Trump said.

Delattre also added that France, the United Kingdom and the USA would submit a new resolution on Syria.

Saturday morning the President tweeted that the strikes were successful, saying the joint actions between the U.S., U.K., and France "could not have had a better result".

Syrians crowded onto the streets in noisy demonstrations of defiance afterward and their ally Russian Federation denounced the attack.

In response to a Russian military claim that Syria's Soviet-made air defence systems downed 71 of 103 cruise missiles launched by the USA and its allies, a Pentagon official stated retorted that none of the missiles involved in the operation were brought down by Syrian forces.

The Russian ambassador to the U.N., Vasily Nebenzia called the attacks "hooliganism in global relations" and is accusing the USA and its allies of acting before worldwide inspectors have concluded their investigation.
