The targets included a scientific research facility near Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility west of the city of Homs, and a third location near Homs that contained both a command post and a chemical weapons equipment storage facility, the USA military said. If neither the Russians nor the Syrian government care what happened to Iran's "military advisers" during the missile strikes, why would they want to stay there?
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has strongly denounced joint airstrikes by the U.S., United Kingdom and France on Syria as a "crime", saying the leaders of the three countries are "criminals".
The strikes were targeted to inflict maximum damage on sites linked to chemical weapons development.

It dived, as 50 investors sold DHR shares while 376 reduced holdings. 333 rose positions while 79 funds acquired positions. The company reported $1.05 earnings per share for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $1.03 by $0.02.

A large volume of high-resolution photos and video from Douma, taken in the aftermath of the attack, document victims suffering from severe disruption to the central nervous systems, consistent with exposure to chemical agents.
The Pentagon subsequently said no further strikes were planned as part of an operation launched a week after a suspected chemical attack on the holdout rebel town of Douma killed dozens of people. These are not the actions of a man.
Now that the U.S. and its Western allies have retaliated for the Douma attack with missile strikes against targets in Syria, it is obvious that Iran will also pay a heavy price. It fears Iran could use Syrian territory to stage attacks or form a land corridor from Iran to Lebanon that could allow it to transfer weapons more easily to Hezbollah.
They "are responsible for the regional consequences of this adventurist action", it said, condemning a "clear violation of global rules and laws".
