State TV also stated that the most modern S-400 anti-missile air defense batteries "did not go into action, because none of the attacks fit the parameters of the S-400's capabilities".

McKenzie said that none "of our aircraft or missiles involved in this operation were successfully engaged by Syrian air defenses".

Raw video footage and images from Syria show missiles darting through the sky during the attack.

The strikes appeared to have taken place far from Russia's bases near the Syrian coast.

"Could not have had a better result", the President wrote at 8:21 a.m. in his first public statement since the strikes unfolded Friday night.

Syrian President Bashar Assad on Saturday responded to overnight Western airstrikes, vowing that they would only make him more determined to crush his enemies.

US President Donald Trump has praised the US-led coalition missile strikes on Syria claiming the air raids were "perfectly executed".

Syria has denied using chemical weapons.

He says that government air defenses shot down many rockets and that only one target was hit at the government "Scientific Research Center".

Syria's government on Saturday denounced Western strikes on its military installations as a "brutal, barbaric aggression" that violated global law.

The US was also anxious that the strikes would prompt a confrontation with Syria's biggest military ally: Russian Federation.

Top military officials urged caution, citing the potential for igniting a wider conflict in a combustible part of the world, people familiar with the discussions said.

The intervention is the biggest by Western powers against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country's seven-yearcivil war and pitted the USA and its allies against Russian Federation.

Otherwise the attack did not draw a military response from Russian or Iranian forces operating in Syria, the Pentagon said.

The United States "is locked and loaded" to strike Syria again in response to new chemical attacks, Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, told an emergency session of the UN Security Council on Saturday.
