The U.S. military says the Barzeh complex in Damascus was a "center for the research, development, production and testing of chemical and biological weapons".
However, Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, Director of the Joint Staff at the Pentagon, said no missiles were intercepted. Both facilities are located near Homs.
She said Trump was "locked and loaded" to order more airstrikes if Assad conducts another poison gas attack.
Despite the attacks, a Senior U.S. official involved with counter-terrorist initiations in Syria said that Russian and pro-regime Syrians were showing no signs of aggression towards American or coalition forces.
"The OPCW used to stay in the two upper rooms, and use the labs, and we would cooperate with them completely", he said.
The United States of America will not allow the Assad regime to continue to use chemical weapons.
"It's a much more efficient weapon, unfortunately, the way the regime has been using it, and it results in higher deaths and the deaths, according to the photos of multiple children and women", the official said.
The coordinated attack on Syria by US and allied military forces illustrates the conflicting impulses behind President Trump's foreign policy.
The Russian ambassador to the U.S., Anatoly Antonov, condemned the airstrikes and warned that "such actions will not be left without consequences". It said that "all responsibility" rests with Washington, London and Paris.
Earlier on Saturday, Syrian police units entered the town of Douma, a site of a suspected chemical weapons attack and the last rebel town in the eastern Ghouta region.
Vice President Mike Pence, who is filling in for Mr. Trump at the Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, said Mr. Trump "made it clear to the world" that the United States "will not tolerate these chemical weapons". NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the strikes were about making sure that chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.
Hundreds of Syrians took to the street in support of their leader. Some clapped their hands and danced, other drove in convoys, honking their horns in defiance.
Here in Indianapolis local Syrians are reacting, many of whom still have loved ones living in Syria. "Good morning steadfastness", one broadcaster said.
Defense Secretary James Mattis did not say whether he believed the strikes would deter Assad from using chemical weapons again.
U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence is attending the Summit of the Americas in Trump's stead, and is scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday.
Among the contentious proposals, it would establish an independent investigation of allegations of toxic gas attacks in Syria with the aim of identifying the perpetrators.
Preserving that pocket of freedom doesn't require a major Western ground presence, but it does require the will to declare Syria east of the Euphrates a no-fly zone - just as the victors in the First Gulf War did for Iraqi Kurdistan.
