French President Emmanuel Macron said the action was narrowly focused on Syria's chemical weapons facilities while May insisted there was no intention to interfere in the broader civil war that has engulfed the country since 2011.

Friday's military campaign targeted research facilities that are thought to have been involved in the production of chemical weapons.

Russia condemned the United States, the United Kingdom and France for their joint retaliation strikes in Syria less than a week after Russian President Vladimir Putin had denied responsibility for a deadly chemical attack on a town east of Damascus.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called the strikes "crimes" in a speech cited by Iranian TV, according to Reuters.

Officials from the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Qatar expressed support for the strikes on Syrian government targets.

"Nations of the world can be judged by the friends they keep". Despite the strikes, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said it was still planning on carrying out its investigation into the Douma attack. "This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very awful regime", Trump alleged.

Jebelli further emphasized that regional countries, particularly Saudi Arabia, were not able to engage in a direct war against Syria, but gave money to the USA to wage wars.

White said the USA believes it has "significantly crippled" Syrian President Bashar Assad's ability to carry out a chemical weapons attack.

Both the regime of Syria's Bashar al-Assad and its ally Russian Federation have denied all responsibility for the Douma attack, and Moscow slammed the "aggressive actions" of the Western coalition, but it has not yet responded militarily.

McKenzie said 105 US and allied missiles were fired, of which 66 were Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from aboard three Navy ships and one Navy submarine.
