On April 7th, US warships delivered an illegal mass attack on a Syrian air base in Homs, using the manufactured Idlib “gas attack” as justification against the Syrian state. It is evident that the attack of US warships was in planning long before the claimed chemical weapon use on behalf of the Assad government. The US attack was accompanied by a mass offensive on the ground by ISIS and Al-Nusra terrorists.

The cruise missile attack was badly performed and did not hit any of the assumed targets at the Syrian air base. It is likely that at the time of the attack, Russian personnel were also present at the base but any casualties from the Russian side have yet been reported. Russia has suspended its 2013 Memorandum with the US, which sought to minimise dangerous in-flight incidents between the two countries in Syrian airspace.
