For a second time, President Donald Trump ordered a limited military strike to punish Syria for using chemical weapons against civilians, and to deter further atrocities. Russian President Vladimir Putin said the strikes would have "a destructive effect on the entire system of global relations". He accused the allies of violating the U.N. Charter and worldwide law.

During a press conference this morning, Russia's Col Get Sergei Rudskoi claimed Syrian military facilities had suffered only minor damage and claimed that the Syrian air defences took out the 71 missiles.
