Trump referred in a Tweet to "Animal Assad" and criticised Russia and Iran for backing the Syrian leader, directly naming Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Iran said the number of its soldiers killed in an air strike in Syria this week had risen to seven and that it would not go unanswered.

Israel, which has struck Syrian army locations many times in the course of its neighbour's seven-year-old civil war, has not confirmed nor denied mounting the raid. He said the outgrowth of spy poisonings in the United Kingdom, the chemical attack in Syria and a potential trade war between the USA and China are all "connected and have led to a very "sensitive" situation in Syria".

"At least 14 fighters were killed in the strike on the T-4 airport, among them Iranian forces", said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor. Speaking to a Lebanese newspaper affiliated with the Hezbollah terror group, Khatani said that "any small error in their course of action will result in a painful response from Iran".

Israeli jets subsequently bombed several military targets in Syria, including some under Iranian control.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the strike on the base a "very risky development". Lavrov also said the strike on the T-4 base was a unsafe development.

Responding to the strike, Velayati told IRNA "Defenders of the holy shrines are still standing by the Syrian people and government and will continue their fight against the enemies of the Islamic Ummah, particularly the Zionist regime and its masters".

Israel's airstrike on Monday comes amid another high-casualty, Syrian regime chemical weapons attack targeting civilian neighbourhoods in Douma - a Damascus suburb. Israeli officials refused to comment on the strike.

The IDF has issued no official response to allegations that it was behind the Syria strike, which was apparently coordinated in advance with the United States, but not with Russian Federation despite the two countries having established a hotline to avoid clashes over Syria.
