RUSSIANS CLAIM SYRIANS DOWNED 71 OF 103 MISSILES

Pretty good, if true. But it’s not as if the Russians and Syrians do not lie. If it is true, it was a poorly planned and executed strike.

The Russian military has claimed that the Syrian air defences, whose most modern weapon is a three-decades-old Russian-supplied anti-aircraft system, shot down 71 of 103 missiles fired by the US and its allies, the UK and France, a claim denied by the Pentagon.

As further details began to emerge about the sites targeted by the US-led strikes, Col Gen Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military said the strikes had not caused any casualties and that Syrian military facilities suffered only minor damage.
