The United States is "disappointed but not surprised" at Russia's response to its strikes on a Syrian air base suspected of storing chemical weapons, the BBC reported.

At least six people are reported to have been killed in the US missile strikes early on Friday.

Syria's ally Russia accused the United States of encouraging "terrorists" with its unilateral actions.

"I am disappointed in that response," the United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said.

"It indicates their continued support for the Assad regime and, in particular, their continued support for a regime that carries out these type of horrendous attacks on their own people.

"So I find it very disappointing, but, sadly, I have to tell you, not all that surprising," he added.

Moscow has promised to strengthen Syria's anti-aircraft defences.
