Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said there were no reports of USA losses in what he described as a heavy but carefully limited assault.

During a U.N. Security Council meeting Friday, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley condemned Russian Federation for saying the attack was staged.

Western officials believe chlorine was used in Saturday's attack on Douma, the main city in the longtime rebel bastion of Eastern Ghouta, where the British government now estimates 75 people were killed.

London put "powerful pressure" on the civil defence organisation, Konashenkov said.

Apart from Macron's phone conversation with Putin, NATO members Germany and the Netherlands have said they will not take part in any military action.

Over the weekend, the Pentagon said Russian "trolling" activity increased 2,000 percent in the wake of the Syria strike - but neither country identified any of the specific targets of the attacks.

USA intelligence agencies a year ago accused Russian Federation of interfering in the 2016 election with a hacking and propaganda campaign supporting Donald Trump's campaign for president.

United Kingdom government sources have confirmed a Pentagon analysis that showed a 20-fold increase in Russian-sourced "disinformation" being spread online since the cruise missile attacks on Syria in the early hours of Saturday, which has raised concerns that a campaign of cyber attacks by the Russia could follow, according to The Telegraph.

Multiple sources including private and public-sector cyber security research organisations and allies have reported this activity to the United States and UK governments, and the NCSC confirmed that the campaign of activity has directly affected the UK. He said, "Right now, this is a one-time shot created to set back the Syrian war machine's ability to produce chemical weapons".

Putin said that Russian military experts who inspected Douma found no trace of the attack.

Trump has slammed Russian Federation for its partnership with "Gas Killing Animal" Assad, spurring concerns that a United States strike could lead to a conflict with Russian Federation, which has major military facilities at Tartus and Khmeimim and works cheek-by-jowl with Syria forces that could be targeted.

UN Syria peace envoy Staffan de Mistura cited the air base strike along with other recent events in Syria in a briefing to the Security Council, cautioning against a "situation of uncontrollable escalation".
