In a televised address from the White House, Trump said he had ordered U.S. armed forces to launch "precision strikes" associated with Assad's chemical weapons capabilities.

Russian Federation said that the Western powers "cynically" carried out military action hours before a team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was set to begin an investigation into the suspected chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta that sparked the intervention by the U.S. and its allies.

The action followed a week of threats of retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma, outside Damascus, where Syrian forces have always been battling rebels. "But on this occasion there is none".

"A pre-designed scenario is being implemented", Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said on Twitter.

However, Russia's ambassador to the United States has warned that there would be grave consequences for the attacks.

"Again, we are being threatened".

The world leaders announced that the strikes targeted positions linked to the chemical weapons facilities of the Syrian government. "We warned that such actions will not remain without consequences", the report said.

"Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", he added.

Russia's demand for condemnation and an immediate halt to "aggression" and "any further use of force" by the US, Britain and France got support from only two other countries on the 15-member council - China and Bolivia.

"We had an early warning of the strike from the Russians and all military bases were evacuated a few days ago", the official said.
