Russian ambassador to U.S. threatens with consequences for strikes on Syria

Russian Foreign Minister

The Syrian government and its allies have absorbed a US-led attack on Saturday and the targeted sites were evacuated days ago thanks to a warning from Russian Federation, a senior official in a regional alliance that backs Damascus said.

M - Damascus' allies have condemned US President Donald Trump for ordering air attacks in Syria "on targets associated with chemical weapons capabilities" in collaboration with the United Kingdom and France, Al Jazeerareported.

Russian Federation has condemned US, UK and French strikes against targets in Syria over the alleged use of chemical weapons as the Western allies argued they were essential to deter the future use of illegal munitions. "But on this occasion there is none".

Amid escalating tensions in the region, Russia has repeatedly warned the U.S. and its allies against taking any military action in Syria, as it might lead to grave consequences for the whole world, especially given the fact that Russian troops are deployed in the country.

"A pre-designed scenario is being implemented", Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said on Twitter. Trump said he was prepared to sustain the response until Assad's government stopped its use of chemical weapons.


"Again, we are being threatened".

Russian Federation had "refused" supplying those missiles to Syria a few years ago, he added, "taking into account the pressing request of some of our Western partners".

Syria's air defense system, which mostly consists of systems made in the Soviet Union, has intercepted 71 of the missiles fired on Saturday by the U.S., British and French forces, he added.

Following the USA -led strikes, however, "we consider it possible to return to examination of this issue not only in regard to Syria but to other countries as well", Rudskoi said.
