As a result of the missile strikes of the United States, Britain and France on Syrian territory, three people were injured. This is reported by Reuters with reference to the SANA Syrian news agency.

Reportedly, the external damage received the research center in the province of Homs.

"Missiles launched on the military base in Homs were intercepted and shot down, three civilians were injured," the report said.

At the same time, RIA "Novosti" referring to a source in the security agencies of Syria informs about six civilians affected.

We recall, on the evening of April 13, US President Donald Trump ordered to conduct the rocket attacks on Syrian territory in response to the use of chemical weapons in the Douma. They were also joined by the United Kingdom and France. According to Reuters, the United States struck with cruise missiles Tomahawk.

After the attack, the statement was also made by British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron. The leaders noted that the strikes were applied exclusively to objects that are associated with chemical weapons. The Russian ambassador to the US, Antonov, threatened sides with the consequences for striking Syria.

On April 7, the volunteer organizations reported that the chemical attack at Douma, the East Ghouta took place. As a result of this attack at least 70 people died. The Syrian government and Russia called this information untrue, while the US and allies have blamed Bashar al-Assad for the attack.

Later U.S. President Donald Trump announced about a coming missile attack in Syria and urged Russia to be prepared. Also, the British troops prepare for the operation.

In its turn, Russia’s Foreign Ministry claimed that the missiles should aim the ‘terrorists’. The General Staff of Russia recommended the US and its allies to restore Syrian Raqqa instead of threats.
