"The military operation was necessary and appropriate to preserve the effectiveness of the worldwide ban on the use of chemical weapons and to warn the Syrian regime of further violations", she said in a statement voicing support for the joint US, UK and French action.
"I hope hot heads will cool down and that will be it", he told reporters.
The suspected poison gas attack in Douma, which killed more than 40 people, has drawn worldwide outrage and prompted the United States and its allies to consider a military strike on Syria, something Moscow has strongly warned against.
Western powers are thought to be preparing for strikes but Russian Federation, a Syrian ally, opposes such action.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis warned that such an attack could spin out of control, suggesting caution in advance of a decision on how to respond to an attack against civilians last weekend that USA officials are increasingly certain involved the use of banned chemical weapons.
He said the analysis was done at the request of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova accused the USA of attacking Syria when it finally had a chance for peace and likened the evidence of the April 7 chemical weapons attack in Douma - which precipitated Friday's attack - to the evidence that justified the 2003 Iraq invasion. Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security. "In the US administration there are specific people who it is possible to talk with".
The UN Security Council overwhelmingly rejected a Russian resolution calling for condemnation of "aggression" by the United States, United Kingdom, and France against Syria on Saturday, a vote reflecting support for the allied airstrikes on Syrian chemical sites.
Konashenkov released statements he said came from medics at Douma's hospital, saying a group of people toting video cameras entered the hospital, shouting that its patients were struck with chemical weapons, dousing them with water and causing panic. The government, however, said evacuations from Douma were ongoing and no Syrian government forces had entered the town.
We will remind, relations between Russia and great Britain strained after London accused Moscow in the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, deported from the country of the Russian diplomats.
On the ground in Syria, rebels in Eastern Ghouta surrendered their heavy weapons and their leader left the enclave, signalling the end of one of the bloodiest assaults of the seven-year war and a major win for the Assad regime.
