Mr. Muallem said the Syrian army bombed a warehouse belonging to the rebels that contained chemical weapons.

The United States launched dozens of cruise missiles Thursday night at a Syrian airfield in response to what it believes was Syria's use of banned chemical weapons. The US military called the attacks “an act of aggression”.

Pentagon spokesman Jeff Davis said before the attack, the US army discussed the situation with Russia to avoid any misunderstanding.
