Damascus skies erupt with service to air missile fire as the USA launches an attack on Syria early Saturday, April 14, 2018.

"Russia severely condemns the attack on Syria where Russian military are helping the lawful government in the fight with terrorism", the Kremlin said in a statement, its first reaction to the strikes.

Russia's Colonel General Sergei Rudskoi said at a press conference on Saturday: 'This fact of American aggression shows that U.S. is not interested in conducting an objective investigation, wishes to disrupt the process of peaceful resolution in Syria and destabilise the situation in the region and has nothing to do with the previously proclaimed goals of fighting worldwide terrorism'.

"You have to be quite abnormal to attack Syria's capital just at the moment when it had a chance for a peaceful future".

"The worst fears were justified: our warnings were ignored, a script prepared in advance is being put into practice, and again we are threatened".

Earlier on Saturday, British Prime Minister Theresa May said she was left with "no alternative path" but to order the air strikes.

Ambassador Antonov said: "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible".
