The segment aired just before the US, UK, and France unleashed military strikes in response to allegations of chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government in the Syrian town of Douma over the weekend.

The alert is not related to the suspected chemical weapons attack in a town in Syria that prompted a USA -led military strike over the weekend targeting facilities of the Russian-backed Syrian government, Joyce said.

The Pentagon reports that all objectives were accomplished in the attack, all designated targets were hit, and none of the aircraft or missiles involved in the strike were successfully engaged by Syrian or Russian air defenses.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in a conference call that London and Washington had not presented any evidence. "Therefore allegations of this towards Russian Federation are groundless", Peskov said.

"Any escalation in Syria may also instigate unrest elsewhere in the region, either against the United States or its allies, raising the threat to the delivery of energy supplies", analysts at Barclays Capital warned in a research note published before the missile attacks.

Analysts have speculated Russian Federation may use cyber attacks to retaliate over recent Western airstrikes on Moscow's ally Syria.
