The latests strikes suggest that Trump may have reset America's red line for military intervention in Syria over the use of chemical weapons. The Western states have accused forces of President Bashar Assad of an attack with the use of chemicals in Duma.

- French president Emmanuel Macron said "a red line" had been crossed after the chemical weapons attack in Douma.

In May past year, the BBC reported that the Barzah site was being used by the Syrian regime to install chemical weapons on long-range missiles, violating the 2013 agreement to eliminate chemical weapons from the country.

More than 100 missiles were launched early Saturday morning by the US and its allies France and the United Kingdom, targeting three chemical weapons sites in Syria.

The Violations Documentation Centre, which records alleged violations of global law in Syria, said there were attacks at 4.30pm and 7.30pm. In 2017, the USA launched missiles against Syria following reports of a sarin gas attack.

Mattis said Friday that the United States had not yet confirmed that the suspected Syrian chemical weapons attack included the use of sarin gas.

Saturday's airstrikes drew support from the European Union, Germany, Israel and other allies.

Iran, which has also backed Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad since the conflict began in 2011, also warned of "regional consequences".

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in an interview published Sunday in the Journal du Dimanche newspaper that "we should join our efforts to promote a political process in Syria that would allow a way out of the crisis".

The decision to strike, after days of deliberations, marked Trump's second order to attack Syria.
