The chemical attack on Khan Sheikhoun on Tuesday triggered a USA missile attack two days later that struck a Syrian air base in central Syria killing nine people.
The US action on Thursday night killed six Syrian soldiers and nine civilians besides causing huge damage at the Shairat military base in Homs province in central Syria, news reports said. Russian Federation still has several dozen warplanes and batteries of air defense missiles at its base near Latakia, Syria.
Russian Federation responded by warning that the military action could have serious consequences.
University student Ashraf Fadel said he came to denounce "the unjust American aggression against Syria".
He stopped short of accusing Russian Federation of being directly involved in the planning or execution of the attack, saying he had not seen "any hard evidence" to suggest the nation was an accomplice to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
According to a Pentagon statement, the strike was in response to the Syrian government's chemical attack on Tuesday in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun in the country's northwestern province of Idlib. Damascus called the allegation a "lie".

Elichai Taherlev, 20, of the Golani Brigade was killed in the incident, and another 19-year-old soldier was slightly injured. The attack was part of a spate of violence that broke out in September 2015 but has abated in recent months.

Moscow has warned Washington that its cruise missile attack against the Syrian regime "plays into the hands of extremists".
The move was welcomed by the Syrian opposition and its main backers, including Turkey and Saudi Arabia, but harshly condemned by Russian Federation and Iran, who back Assad and said striking his forces would complicate the struggle against extremist groups.
Mr Tillerson said on Sunday that Russia's inaction had allowed the chemical attack to take place. The carrier soon will begin launching airstrikes targeting the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.
Erdogan has said Turkey, which hosts warplanes from the USA -led coalition in its southern Incirlik airbase, would be ready to support further US action in Syria.
