BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – Russian General Sergei Rudskoy said on Wednesday that only 13 of the US-led Coalition’s 76 reported missile strikes hit the Barzeh Research Center in rural Damascus on April 14th, RIA reported this afternoon.

“So, in the area of ​​the research center in Barzeh, only 13 hits were recorded out of 76 missile strikes,” he told reporters at a briefing.

The United States, Britain, and France launched a powerful attack on the night of April 14th that targeted the Syrian government’s alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria.

The Syrian and Russian forces stated that the Syrian Air Defense had managed to intercept 71 out of 103 cruise missiles fired by the US-led group.

US President Donald Trump contrasted these claims, stating that all of the US cruise missiles struck their targets.
