The army claimed the U.S. airstrikes killed nine people and caused "huge material damage" at the Shayrat air base, south-east of Homs. He said he did not expect further such USA attacks, however.

The Syrian opposition welcomed US strikes against a Syrian government airbase on Friday and called for more after two American warships fired dozens of missiles at the airfield in a sharp escalation of the USA military role in Syria.

He did not specify where the planes had been moved to or who had warned the Syrian government.

Global reaction to the USA cruise missile attack on a Syrian airbase has exposed the stark lines by which the worldwide community is divided over the six-year civil war.

"We feel that the strike itself was proportional, because it was targeted at the facility that delivered this most recent chemical weapons attack", Secretary of State Tillerson told reporters.

In a statement carried by IRNA on Friday, Bahram Qasemi, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman, said Tehran sees using such excuses for taking unilateral actions as risky, destructive and against the established principles of global law.

Qasemi said, "Iran, as the biggest victim of chemical weapons in contemporary history, condemns any use of these weapons regardless of its perpetrators and victims", referencing it to the use of chemical weapons by former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, during the 1980-88 Iraq-imposed war.

"It said the United States has ignored past incidents of the use of chemical weapons by Syrian militants, adding that the Syrian government has destroyed its chemical weapons stockpiles under worldwide monitoring".

Meanwhile, regional disarmament talks that provided the North with much-needed aid have been stalled for years. The missile launch may be a precursor, with more to come as the summit starts later this week, Cossa said .

President Trump's plan following the attack remains to be seen, however some Republicans say he should use the opportunity to strike at President Assad's remaining defences.

USA "ready to do more" as Moscow accuses it of violating law.

" Iran and Russian Federation are supporters of the Syrian government, while Turkey is a major supplier of arms to militants".

"We hope for the continuation of the strikes in order to prevent the regime from using its planes to launch any new air raids or going back to using internationally banned weapons", said Ahmad Ramadan, head of the media office of the Syrian National Coalition political opposition group.
