Iranian drone shot down in February was weaponized

"Undoubtedly, the U.S. and its allies, which took military action against Syria despite the absence of any proven evidence and before any final statement by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW)..., will be held accountable for the regional and trans-regional consequences of this adventurism", it noted.

Defense Secretary James Mattis says the USA has no reports of suffering any losses during the initial airstrikes on Syria Friday.

Syria, Iran and Russian Federation say Israel was behind an air strike on a Syrian air base on Monday that killed seven Iranian military personnel, something Israel has neither confirmed nor denied.

The demonstrations broke out early Saturday following a wave of US, British and French military strikes to punish President Bashar Assad for suspected chemical attack against civilians.

"I urge all member states to show restraint in these risky circumstances and to avoid any acts that could escalate the situation and worsen the suffering of the Syrian people", said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in a statement.

The U.S. -led coalition strikes in Syria were created to deter President Bashar Assad's regime from launching further chemical attacks without collapsing his shaky government and drawing the United States further into a lengthy civil war.

The drone had apparently entered from Syrian territory into Israeli airspace for 90 seconds before Israel shot it down.

The group says the mission "will continue its deployment to the Syrian Arab Republic to establish facts around the allegations of chemical weapons use in Douma".

Any strike risks a confrontation with Russian Federation, which has been instrumental in President Bashar al-Assad's gains in the war.

Russia, another major supporter of the Assad regime, has also denounced the USA -led airstrikes.

"Tonight, led by the Americans, the U.S., France and Britain acted appropriately", an Israeli official said on condition of anonymity in a statement issued in Jerusalem. "So we are very confident that we have significantly crippled Assad's ability to produce these weapons".

The Jewish state has not commented on the attack, but the United States said that Israel had warned it about the attack beforehand.

"We were expecting at least more airfields, ground force and naval bases to come under attack", said Arash Aramesh, a national security and foreign policy analyst.

The Saudi-backed government said in a statement on Saturday that the drones are "made in Iran".
