Russian defence officials say 71 of 103 missiles were shot down by Syrian S-125 and S-200 anti-missile systems.
State media outlets in Russia, Iran and Syria have been carrying heavy condemnation of US-led air strikes on Syrian government positions.
US, French and British forces launched the attacks in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack carried out by forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad last week.
Below is a round-up of how they are reacting:
Sputnik, another Russian state-owned media outlet is reporting a claim made by Russian military officials that Syria's air defence system managed to shoot down a majority of cruise missiles fired by the US.
It also repeats the claims made by Russian officials that a majority of the missiles launched by the US had been intercepted.
The group said the "vicious attack on Syria is a blatant violation of the Syrian sovereignty and its people's dignity.
"We assure that the war launched against the region's people and resistance movements won't reach its goals, and the Ummah (nation) will emerge more powerful and more determined to confront and to triumph."
SANA also published a story claiming the Syrian army had discovered a laboratory used by rebels for "making toxic materials".
It also reports condemnation of the strikes by allied groups and protests by supporters in Western states.
