According to Syrian Armed forces, total of 110 missiles were target at multiple sites. Most of the missiles were intercepted while few made it to the targets. One main target that was hit is the Research Centre in Barzeh.

According to Russia’s new agency, TASS, the missiles fired by these western powers were not able to target any or near areas of the Naval and Air bases of Syria. These bases are all under protection of Russian Air Defense Unit.

Three civilian casualties are reported in Homs after missiles intercepted by Syrian Defense Forces.

Defense Secretary, Jim Mattis issued a stamen stating that this is a powerful message that has been sent to Syrian regime.

Russian and Iraqi Foreign ministries both condemned these attacks as the blatant violation of the international laws. They also said that these western attacking forces have neglected the sovereignty of the Syrian territory with their actions.

However the Australian Defense Minster spoke in support of these missile strikes and even called them a “calibrated, proportionate and targeted response”.
