Russia: US planned Syria attack before gas incident

Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Friday the United States had intended to attack Syria even before the alleged chemical incident in the Idlib province for which the US blamed the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“It is obvious that the US cruise missile strike had been pre-prepared. It is clear to any specialist that Washington made the decision to strike before the events in Idlib,” the ministry stated. Russia claimed the incident in Idlib which resulted in 72 deaths was just “used as a pretext for a show of force” by the US.

Earlier today, US President Donald Trump ordered a strike on a Syrian airbase in the Homs province. The attack was carried out with 59 Tomahawk missiles and resulted in six deaths and several injuries.
