IRGC Warns US: Watch out for Consequences of Syria Aggression

IRGC Warns US: Watch out for Consequences of Syria Aggression

Syrian state TV has described the attack by the USA and its allies as a "flagrant violation" of global law.

The Pentagon, however, contradicted that claim, with the director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff telling a news briefing that "none of our aircraft or missiles involved in this operation were successfully engaged by Syrian air defenses".

Deputy Commander for Political Affairs Brigadier General Yadollah Javani condemned the Washington-led missile strikes against Syria, warning that the attack has now given the Resistance Front better and more options to stand up to the US. President Donald Trump said Friday evening in a national address that he ordered precision strikes in Syria in retaliation for Bashar al-Assad's [alleged] "evil and despicable" poison gas attack that killed up to 75 people last weekend.

According to the ministry, Syria repelled the Western attack with air defense systems made in the USSR over 30 years ago.

"Soviet interceptor missiles turned out to be smarter", the lawmaker, Aleksei Pushkov, wrote on Twitter on April 14.

McKenzie said Syrian forces fired only 40 surface-to-air missiles in response to the air strikes - 31 fewer than the number of Western missiles that Russian Federation said had been shot down by Syrian air defenses.

Meanwhile US news outlets reported that The US, UK and France launched a series of strikes on three locations identified as critical to Syria's production of chemical weapons, including a scientific research center in Damascus, and a production facility and storage facility in Homs. Russian Federation said all 12 missiles directed at the airport were intercepted.
