Syria - Russia Sounds Alarm Bell As US, France And UK Consider Strikes (Video)

Just as US President Donald Trump, UK Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron held conference calls to discuss their options for a possible military strike on Syria, the Russian envoy to Beirut stated that the Russian military in the area would respond to any missiles being shot at its ally Syria.

Mr Alexander Zasypkin, the Russian envoy to Beirut, made the situation very clear as he said: “If there is an American strike, then we… will shoot down the missiles and target the positions from where they were launched,”

“In the past few days, we have seen an escalation towards a significant crisis."

Just two days ago, Israeli military planes are suspected to have carried out a bombing raid on a Syrian airbase already in response to the alleged chemical attack of this weekend in Douma by the Assad regime.

Meanwhile, Eurocontrol, the pan-European air traffic control agency, sent out a warning to civilian airliners flying in the area to be on extreme caution near the eastern Mediterranean (Greece, Cyprus, etc.) because of possible strikes in the next 72 hours.

Eurocontrol’s statement read: "Due to the possible launch of air strikes into Syria with air-to-ground and/or cruise missiles within the next 72 hours, and the possibility of intermittent disruption of radio navigation equipment, due consideration needs to be taken when planning flight operations in the Eastern Mediterranean.”
