“The worst expectations have materialized. Our warnings fell on deaf ears. A pre-planned scenario is being acted on. We are being threatened again,” Russia’s ambassador stated. “We have warned that such actions will not remain without consequences. All responsibility for them rests upon Washington, London and Paris,” he said.

The Russian Foreign Ministry is claiming that more than 100 missiles were fired at Syria, but that a “significant number” were intercepted.
