Syria shot down 46 U.S. missiles: Russian Federation

The event is part of an ongoing clash of narratives between the West and Syria and its key ally Russian Federation about the April 7 attack.

His remark follows Russian media reports saying Moscow is considering selling its sophisticated S-300 surface-to-air missile systems to Syria.

The official said if there were chemical weapons in the targeted facilities, thousands would have died following the airstrikes.

Russian Embassy spokesman Mikhail Sobolev said it would bring a group of 15 Syrians who they claim were filmed in "staged videos" of the alleged attack to a meeting at the OPCW on Thursday, US Time.

The U.S., Britain and France blamed the attack on President Bashar Assad's government.

In the days since the April 14 Western air strikes, top Russian officials have said they may reconsider a pledge Moscow gave a decade ago not to provide Syria with the S-300 system.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who was traveling in China, said later that a final decision on the S-300s had yet to be reached, but the intent to shore up Syria's porous air defenses was clear.

The US Department of Defense has seen no verifiable proof to support Russian claims of having in its possession intact Tomahawk missiles captured in Syria, department spokesperson Eric Pahon told Sputnik on Wednesday.

Would not the U.S. missile attack be identical to a chemical weapons attack and thus place the USA and its vassals in the same category as Washington is attempting to place Assad and Putin?

Israel has not taken sides in the Syrian civil war, but its air force has carried out dozens of air strikes during the fighting, majority believed to have been aimed at suspected arms shipments to Hizballah militias allied with Iran.

Iran-allied Syrian forces shooting down an Israeli F-16 fighter jet by Syrian forces and the infiltration of Israeli airspace by an alleged Iranian drone prompted Israel to strike targets linked to the Islamic Republic in February. Israel responded by carrying out air strikes in Syria. Israel then retaliated by destroying Syrian anti-aircraft batteries. According to the expert, the statement from Russia's Defence Ministry about the supplies of S-300 systems to Syria forces aggressive states, like Israel, to bethink themselves and negotiate.

Global donors on Wednesday pledged $4.4 billion in aid for civilians caught up in the Syrian civil war - well short of what the United Nations says is needed for humanitarian work in Syria and neighbouring countries.

Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi said in a statement Wednesday that Russian Federation will supply Syria with "new missile defense systems soon".

"For several years we've been constantly in coordination and able to avoid friction with the Russians", he told Ynet.
