The joint attack by the United States, Britain, and France, which began at 3:55 a.m. local time (0055 GMT), launched some 110 missiles targeting Syrian military sites in the Syrian capital Damascus and elsewhere, Syria's state news agency SANA said, citing the military.
British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Saturday she had authorised British forces to conduct precision strikes against Syria to degrade its chemical weapons capability.
The Kremlin on Friday claimed that British intelligence forces helped stage the attack on the Syrian town of Douma last weekend.
In a statement Mrs May said that the Syrian regime had demonstrated a "persistent pattern of behaviour" when it came to the use of chemical weapons, that "must be stopped".
Konashenkov said that Russian Federation knew "for sure" that between April 3-6, the White Helmets - a group which helps civilians in opposition-held territory in Syria - were "under severe pressure specifically from London to produce as quickly as possible this pre-planned provocation".
In a briefing at Downing Street on Saturday morning, May said she would have preferred an alternative path, instead of punitive strikes but that there was none available.
May said the missile strike was created to minimize any civilian casualties and was not an attempt to change the Syrian government.
Sturgeon said the suspected use of chemical weapons was "sickening", but warned that the latest action risked "dangerous escalation".
No decision on Syria yet, Trump weighing all options: WH Trump tweets: "It was my great honour to fire him". "Stormy" is the sole word above Trump's head beneath the Time magazine title. But outside that rationale - and the White House has not made that case - the president's legal authority becomes murkier.
The Prime Minister explained: "I have taken this decision because I believe it is the right thing to do".
"I have done so because I judge this action to be in Britain's national interest", she added.
Russia, which intervened in the war in 2015 to back Assad, has denied there was a chemical attack and has accused Britain of helping to stage the Douma incident to stoke anti-Russian hysteria.
Trump said strikes on Syria are under way.
Polls in recent days have shown public wariness of military intervention in Syria, with Britain still haunted by its participation in the US-led invasion of Iraq.
"We have. evidence that proves Britain was directly involved in organising this provocation", defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said. We have sought to use every possible diplomatic channel to achieve this.
The targets included a Syrian center in the greater Damascus area for the research, development, production, and testing of chemical and biological weaponry as well as a chemical weapons storage facility near the city of Homs.
It is fair to surmise that Trump had no idea what was in the TPP and could not identify anything specifically wrong with it. Trump also indicated that talks are progressing toward successful renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
