UPDATE: According to the April 25 press briefing by the Russian military:

– only 22 US, French, British missiles hit their targets;

– 46 missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defense systems covering the capital of Syria and Duvali, Dumayr, Blai, and Mazzeh nearby airfields;

– a part of the missiles failed to reach their targets by different, apparently technical, reasons.


On April 25, the chief of the Russian General Staff’s main operations directorate Colonel-General Sergey Rudskoy held a press briefing debunking the Pentagon’s version of the April 14 missile strike on Syria.

During the press briefing, the colonel-general showed wreckage of the intercepted missiles and said that one unexploded Tomahawk cruise missile and one high accuracy air-launched missile launched by the US-led bloc had been delivered to Russia.

He added that according to the updated data only 22 missile hits on targets in Syria can be confirmed.

Earlier the Pentagon said that the US, the UK and France had launched 105 missiles and all of them had hit their targets in Syria.

The Russian military says that 71 missiles were intercepted by the Syrian Air Defense Forces.
