According to Syrian officials, the air strikes killed and injured a large number of people and among those killed were Iranians and members of Iranian groups.
In response, the Trump administration ordered the the launch of a barrage of Tomahawk cruise missiles against a Syrian airbase, marking the first time the USA had directly targeted the Syrian regime since the start of the country's civil war in 2011. Russia, President Bashar al-Assad's most powerful ally, called the reports fake.
American officials say Israel informed the United States of its plans to strike a Syrian airbase days after a chemical weapon attack left dozens of civilians dead in a rebel-held city east of Damascus.
The Russian military, whose support for Assad has turned the war in his favour, said two Israeli F-15 war planes carried out the strike.
His comments came exactly a year and a day after the United States fired cruise missiles at a Syrian air base in retaliation for a deadly sarin gas attack in 2017.
Syrian state media, citing a military source, carried a similar report.
Israel did not comment on Monday's missile strike. Defense analysts quoted by Reuters said there were deployments of Russian forces at the base. Israel hit the base, known as T4, in February, after it said an Iranian drone that violated Israeli airspace took off from it.
"We are aware of the reports, we have nothing to confirm", a Pentagon representative said commenting on the reports of the U.S. involvement in the attack. The Obama administration, having said that the use of the chemical weapons was a "red line" the regime could not cross, considered a military response at the time.
"In this context we are taking action with all means, over time".
