Drone footage of Shayrat airbase, after the US had launched Tomahawk missiles at the base. According to the statement, the US missiles killed 6 people and destroyed a training facility, a material storage depot, a canteen, six MiG-23 aircraft in repair hangars and a radar station. Meanwhile, the airbase’s runway, taxiways and aircraft on the parking apron remained undamaged. Only 23 out of 59 Tomahawk missiles reached their target. Chief of the Directorate of Media service and Information of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation, Maj Gen Igor Konashenkov described the combat efficiency of the strike as “quite poor” and added that the US actions were “a gross violation” of the memorandum of understanding on flight safety in Syria between Russia and the United States. Russian Defence Minsitry said they are going to upgrade Syrian air defence.
