The United States and our partners remain committed to eliminating the small ISIS presence in Syria that our forces have not already eradicated.
Israel is yet to comment on the missile strike which hit Syria's Tayfour airbase also known as T4.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based monitor, said at least 14 people were killed including some fighters of various nationalities, a reference to Iranian-backed Shi'ite militia members, mostly from Iraq, Lebanon and Iran fighting alongside the Syrian army.
"An aggression was perpetrated on T-4 air base in several strikes that is most likely to be an American attack", state television said in a news flash.
The ministry says Syria shot down five out of the eight missiles that targeted the base.
Syrian activists have said that a poison gas attack on Douma, a town held by rebels, have killed over 40 people while the rest are seriously injured. "And I think President Trump made that very clear early in his administration".
"There was no chemical-weapons attack", Nebenzya said, adding that Syria and Russian Federation had invited the global chemical-weapons watchdog to inspect the site. He tweeted on Sunday there would be a "big price to pay" and said Russian Federation, its president, Vladimir Putin, and Iran were responsible for enabling "Animal Assad". Big price to pay.
"The Syrian Air Defense Force has destroyed a few missiles, which attacked the T-4 air base".

"It is necessary to warn again that military intervention under invented and fabricated pretexts in Syria, where at the request of the lawful government there are Russian military personnel, is absolutely unacceptable and can lead to the most serious consequences", the statement reads.
The attacks have come almost a week after Trump expressed his desire to bring the US troops back to the country.
Both the Joint Chiefs of Staff and CENTCOM, the U.S. forces in the Middle East, were compiling target lists and attack options to be presented to Trump and his national security team within hours, the officials said.
Secretary-General Antonio Guterres's spokesperson Stephane Dujarric told reporters: "While the United Nations is not in a position to verify these reports, the secretary-general notes that any use of chemical weapons if confirmed, is abhorrent, and requires a thorough investigation".
In April 2017, Trump ordered a strike on another Syrian air base, Shayrat, 70 kilometers (45 miles) west of T4, following similar allegations that Assad had used banned chemicals on civilians. When asked by interviewers what Israel's interest in such an attack was, Ben Eliyahu said that it was part of the ongoing efforts to prevent Iran from establishing a base in Syria. However gaining access to samples on the ground would be hard.
The UN Security Council is set to meet in an emergency session today to discuss the poison gas attack.
It was not initially clear who carried out the attack after both the US and France denied that they were responsible for the attack.
