U.S. strike on Syria violation of int'l rules: Iran defense minister

State media outlets in Russia, Iran and Syria have been carrying heavy condemnation of US-led air strikes on Syrian government positions.

They "are responsible for the regional consequences of this adventurist action", it said, condemning a "clear violation of worldwide rules and laws".

The U.S., Great Britain and France fired 105 missiles at three sites in Syria early Saturday morning local time, Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, director of the joint chiefs of staff, said Saturday at the Pentagon.

The group said the "vicious attack on Syria is a blatant violation of the Syrian sovereignty and its people's dignity".

In a televised speech, Khamenei accused U.S. President Donald Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron and UK Prime Minister Teresa May of being "criminals".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned on Saturday that a US -led missile attack on Syria would lead to destruction in the Middle East, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported. "Americans will be responsible for further incidents in the region", Tasnim News Agency quoted the deputy IRGC commander for political affairs, Gen. Yadolla Javani, as saying.

"The U.S. -led coalition's strike on Syria will make the regional situation more complicated".

The United States and European allies launched airstrikes on Saturday against Syrian research, storage and military targets under the pretext of a suspected chemical attack near Damascus last weekend that killed more than 40 people.

In a statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office on Saturday, Netanyahu said, "A year ago, I made clear that Israel fully supports the decision by [US] President [Donald] Trump to stand against the use and spread of chemical weapons", referring to American strikes against the Syrian regime in April 2017 after a sarin gas attack on a rebel-held town.

It was the second USA military strike against the Assad regime prompted by its alleged use of banned chemical weapons against rebels during a civil war that began in March 2011.

"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 Syrian government has denied using chemical weapons against enemy forces.
