"The use of chemical weapons by anyone, anywhere, under any circumstances is illegal and utterly reprehensible", Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Saturday.

The strikes risked raising tension in an already combustible region, but appeared designed not to trigger a military response from Russian Federation and Iran. "We thank them both".

The U.S.is conducting the strikes in coordination with Britain and France, the president said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May won backing from her senior ministers on Thursday to take unspecified action with the United States and France to deter further use of chemical weapons by Syria.

Trump's announcement immediately preceded reports of loud explosions lighting up the sky in Damascus.

The attack brought to mind the 2017 Shayrat missile strike that took place in April 2017, and involved the launch of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles by the United States from the Mediterranean Sea into Syria, aimed at the Shayrat Airbase controlled by the Syrian government. They destroyed or damaged a number of Syrian military aircraft and infrastructure at the base.

Mr May and Mr Trump are believed to be in agreement that the Syrian regime, lead by President Bashar al-Assad, must not go unchallenged.

But Defense Secretary Jim Mattis labeled the strikes "right now" as being "a one-time shot", adding that no additional attacks are currently planned.

The strikes are in response to a suspected gas attack on the rebel-held city of Douma last weekend. The US leader criticized Moscow for standing by Syrian President Bashar Assad. Syrian activists, rescuers and medics said families suffocated in their homes. "These are not the actions of a man", Trump said, referring to Assad.

President Trump announces Friday that a USA -led coalition has launched a military response to the Syrian government's alleged chemical weapon attack earlier this month.

Images showed victims of the attack foaming at the mouth.

Speaking Thursday, Assad issued a strong warning about strikes against Syria.

"We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom or anywhere else in our world", Ms May said, referencing the recent nerve gas attack on a Russian double agent in England.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Theresa May held a special cabinet meeting to consider whether Britain should join the USA and France in possible military action. The US, UK and France had announced they had reached their own conclusion that it the Syrian regime was responsible, an accusation denied by Damascus and Russian Federation, which claimed on Friday the attack had been staged by British intelligence. Military, economic and diplomatic.

"It has reduced the regime's ability to use chemical weapons in the future and sends a clear and strong message that the use of chemical weapons will not be tolerated by the worldwide community", Ms Payne told reporters in Sydney. He asked that "responsible nations" join in condemning the Assad regime.

Although Russia warned of a conflict with the US, it has also called on all parties involved in Syria to refrain from actions that could destabilize the region.

Speaking from the White House, Trump says, "To Iran and to Russian Federation, I ask: What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?" The nations of the world can be judged by the friends they keep. Russian Federation must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace.

"A pre-designed scenario is being implemented".

Macron said: "We can not tolerate the employment of chemical weapons". On Monday, he said, "We are meeting with our military and everybody else, and we'll be making some major decisions over the next 24 to 48 hours".

President Donald Trump speaks during an event on tax policy in the Rose Garden of the White House, April 12, 2018, in Washington.
