A senior Russian military official has said that Syrian air defence had intercepted at least 71 cruise missiles fired by US, UK and France forces.

At a news conference in Moscow on Saturday, Lt. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy said at least 103 cruise missiles, including Tomahawks, were fired into a number of targets in Syria.

“Russia has fully restored the air defence system of Syria, and it continues to improve it over the last six months,” Rudskoy said.

Among those targeted by the US-led operation was the Al-Dumayr military airport outside of Damascus. Russia said all 12 missiles directed at the airport were intercepted.

Well he looks like a fool now seeing as all targets were levelled. That means if the air defence sites are targeted next, they will be taken out and air superiority will follow. Usual russian bluster and lies that only those inside Russia will swallow.

This is a classic when you have an inferior technology but try to project the opposite. It's sad these generals are supposed to be talking about the reality and instead must divert to fantasy to save face.

Starali Mistriel says:

Maybe this is really about targeting the DEEP STATE's hold on Syria, not to harm or target Syrian People or the kind Russian Troops there, but to solely go after corrupt CABAL driven factions who are attempting to bring us ALL into a World War that NONE of US want. Praying for ALL.

Carlos Matamoros says:

They told me there is a big funeral in Pentagon. Tomahawk is dead. Officially :))))
Even Soviet Era 40 y/o air defense systems can shoot down most of the smartest most advanced US missiles.

andry widjaya says:

the same way and the same reason when the American accused iraq,and until now the accusation was not proved. I think US,france and UK as stupid as trump.US and allies do this to cover the shame of losing strategy and losing everything from russia against ISIS in syria.
