Syrian Air Defenses Intercepted 71 Cruise Missile Lunched by Western Coalition

Syrian Air Defenses Intercepted 71 Cruise Missile
The Russian General Staff said a total of 71 cruise missiles out of 103 had been intercepted by Syria, adding that no government military airfrield had been damaged as a result of the attack.

The Russian Defense Ministry stated that most missiles launched by the Western states on Syria had been downed by the Arab Republic's air defenses while approaching their targets, stressing that Damascus repelled the Western attack with air defense systems made in the USSR over 30 years ago, Middle East News reported.

The US, the UK and France have fired more than 100 cruise and air-to-surface missiles at military and civilian targets in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on Saturday, noting that "Over 100 cruise and air-to-surface missiles have been fired at military and civilian targets in Syria by US, British and French planes and ships".

"Syria's means of air defense: S-125, S-200 air defense systems, [as well as] Buk and Kvadrat units were used in the repelling the missile strike," according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

"A few years ago, we refused to supply S-300 air defense systems to Syria due to the request of some of our Western partners. Taking into account what happened, we consider it possible to return to this issue. And not only with regard to Syria, but with regard to other states," the General Staff stated, adding that "Over the past 1.5 years, Russia has fully restored the air defense system of Syria and continues to improve it".

    According to Sturgeon, air strikes have not resolved the crisis situation in Syria so far. “Nothing I’ve heard persuades me they will do so now,” she said, calling for “an international strategy for peace,” not “a course that risks dangerous
