Syrian rebels welcomed a US missile attack on a Syrian army airbase on Friday but said Washington's "responsibility" did not end there and military action should continue to prevent the Syrian government using airbases and banned weapons.

According to local media reports, five of the civilians, among them three children were killed just outside the base.

"An American missile also hit the village of Al-Hamrat, which killed four civilians including a child", it added.

According to a report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research, the conflict has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people, injured 1.9 million others, and displaced almost half of the country's pre-war population of about 23 million within or beyond its borders.

"I believe-God willing-that the human casualties are not big, but there is material damage", Barazi said in separate comments to Reuters.

Meanwhile, Russian president Vladimir Putin denounced the USA strike as an "act of aggression".

The strike launched off US Navy ships was in retaliation to the Syrian governments chemical weapon attack.

Qassemi said, "The Islamic Republic, as the biggest victim of chemical weapons in modern history, condemns any application of such weapons, regardless of the perpetrators and victims".

"Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched".
