A photo released early on April 14, 2018, on the website of the official Syrian Arab News Agency shows smoke billowing in the background on the outskirts of Damascus after Western strikes reportedly hit Syrian military bases and chemical research centres in and around the capital. 

Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov on Friday warned that the US strikes on Syria "will not be left without consequences."

"All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris," he said in a statement, adding "the worst apprehensions have come true."

"Our warnings have been left unheard," he said. "A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened."

Earlier on Friday, US President Donald Trump said he ordered the US armed forces to launch an attack together with Britain and France on targets related to Syria's chemical weapons capabilities.
