USA forces launched targeted missile strikes on Friday at key military outposts in Syria, where the government is thought to have stored chemical weapons used in a strike that killed over 40 civilians last weekend.
Criticizing the United States and its allies for launching the missile strikes despite absence of any proven evidence regarding the use of chemical weapons by Syrian government, Iran's Foreign Ministry said America and its allies will assume responsibility for the regional and trans-regional consequences of this adventurism.
Mattis said Thursday evening that the US had not yet confirmed that the Douma attack - the most recent suspected Syrian chemical weapons attack, on April 7 - included the use of sarin gas.
Military from the three nations launched a missile strike on three facilities in Damascus following last week's chemical weapon attack in the suburb of Duoma, which killed 40 civilians.
On Saturday morning, Trump tweeted that a "perfectly executed" strike was carried out Friday night. "Initial indications are that we accomplished the military objectives without interference from Syria", he said.

Warships, fighters jets and cruise missiles were used in the coordinated operation that struck military infrastructure and sites allegedly used to develop and manufacture chemical weapons. After that attack, President Donald Trump promised to exact a "big price" on the Assad regime.
The targets included chlorine and sarin gas research facilities and the allies met no significant resistance from Syrian air defenses, the Pentagon said, contradicting Russian claims that the majority of the missiles had been intercepted.
Haley blasted Russia for protecting Syria and said Moscow has emboldened the Syrian regime to continue its attacks, while the Russian ambassador to the United Nations said Washington had embarked on an "illegal military adventure".
Noting that Washington "had done everything in its power to settle the dispute diplomatically", Haley pointed out that Russian Federation repeatedly vetoed attempts to condemn the Syrian regime at the UNSC over the past week, providing Assad diplomatic cover to continue carrying out its vicious military campaign against his own people.
One major concern the U.S. had was that the Syria strikes would prompt a direct confrontation between Washington and Moscow, whose relations have been spiraling downward. "We thank them both". Many pundits and analysts believe the chemical attack was carried out by rival rebel groups as opposed to Assad. Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the US did not coordinate targets with or notify the Russian government of the strikes, beyond normal airspace "de-confliction" communications.

While the Pentagon said the strikes wouldn't continue beyond Friday night, Trump warned that they could be repeated if Assad persisted with chemical attacks. "We have sent a clear message to Assad and his murderous lieutenants".
At the time, the Pentagon said that a fifth of Syria's operational aircraft were either damaged or destroyed. French Defense Minister Florence Parly said that "with our allies, we ensured that the Russians were warned ahead of time".
The U.S. has about 2,000 troops in northeastern Syria, where they have partnered with Kurdish fighters to dismantle the Islamic State.
White also said Russian Federation has begun a disinformation campaign on the situation. Assad and Russian Federation have denied roles in the attack.
The US was also anxious that the strikes would prompt a confrontation with Syria's biggest military ally: Russian Federation. Last year's strike involved 59 missiles.
