Russia, Iran and Syria were quick to accuse Israel of the attack as well.

He added: "Israeli aggression against the Syrians and the region's Muslims remains ongoing". The official referenced the Iranian drone that infiltrated into Israeli airspace in February, which was shot down by Israel and led to an Israeli retaliatory raid.

"Given that the Western strikes in Syria were about chemical weapons and nothing more, it is no surprise that Syria's President Assad was reported to be in a good mood", Middle East analyst Robert Danin wrote for the Council on Foreign Relations.
