Russia: US also targeted Syrian airfields

Russian defense ministry stated on Monday that the air strike against Syrian regime's chemical weapons capabilities led by the United States early on Saturday also targeted "Syrian military infrastructure, including airfields." Pentagon stated the attack was aimed at three research and production facilities.

"The real targets of the attacks of the US, Britain and France on April 14 were not only Barzah and Jaramani research facilities, but also Syrian military infrastructure, including airfields," said a Russian defense ministry spokesman, adding that "none of the airfields suffered significant damage." He clarified that all missiles targeting the airfields were intercepted by the Syrian army. US President Donald Trump said none of "over 100" missiles were shot down and praised a "perfectly executed strike."
