The Kremlin blasted US missile strikes Thursday night against a Syrian airbase which Western intelligence officials claim was used as a staging ground for the sarin gas attack outside of Idlib Tuesday which killed as many as 100 people.Overnight, two US guided missile destroyers fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Al Shayrat airbase in Syria.”A total of 59 [missiles] targeted aircraft, hardened aircraft shelters, petroleum and logistical storage, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems, and radars,” said Pentagon spokesman Jeff Davis.Syrian officials claimed Friday that seven people had been killed in the attack, with another nine wounded.In a formal statement Friday morning, the Russian Foreign Ministry condemned the strikes as an “act of aggression”, and warned that the move damaged US-Russian relations.”The very presence of US troops and other countries on the territory of Syria…is a gross, obvious and unwarranted violation of international law.””[This] is a clear act of aggression against a sovereign Syria. US Actions taken today further destroy the Russian-American relations.”
