Russian top brass names Syrian air defense complexes that thwarted attack”

"According to available information, a total of 103 cruise missiles were fired..."

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Marine General Joseph Dunford said three main chemical weapons facilities were targeted by both missiles from the sea and fired from aircraft, which triggered Syrian air defences.

None of the missiles that were launched by the USA and its allies entered Russian air defense zones that protect facilities in Tartus and Khmeimim, the Russian Defense Ministry said. US B-1 bombers were also used.

A total of 100 cruise and air-to-surface missiles were launched at targets in Syria, the ministry stated, noting that two United States warships carried out the attack from the Red Sea, as well as tactical aviation over the Mediterranean Sea and B-1B bombers from al Tanf area. 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. The Syrian news agency SANA does not confirm this.
