Russia Responds To Syria Air Strikes: "We Are Being Threatened"

"Russia severely condemns the attack on Syria where Russian military are helping the lawful government in the fight with terrorism", the Kremlin said in a statement, its first reaction to the strikes.

"Again, we are being threatened", Russia's ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, said in a statement.

The US, France, and Britain announced a joint operation against Syria's government, a week after a suspected chemical attack outside the capital Damascus left more than 40 people dead.

Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible. "The US - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries".

The Russian defence ministry said today that none of the Western strikes in Syria had hit areas covered by Russia's air defences around its air base and naval facility.

Late Friday night, the U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S., United Kingdom and France jointly launched strikes targeting the Assad regime's chemical weapons capabilities after a suspected chemical attack killed dozens outside of Damascus.

Zakharova suggested that Western media bore some responsibility for the strikes, claiming the White House cited "multiple media sources" on the suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma.

The Russian statements were forcefully rejected by the United States, with President Donald Trump telling the Russians that missles were on the way.
