Trump taunts Russia, says 'get ready' for missile strike in Syria

After a Russian diplomat warned that any US missiles fired at Syria will be shot down and their launch sites targeted, President Donald Trump fired back Wednesday - telling Russia to "get ready".

President Trump warned Russian Federation not to support President Assad, referring to him as the "gas killing animal".

Earlier on Wednesday, Trump in a Twitter post warned Russian Federation to "get ready" because U.S. missiles would be headed towards Syria.

President TrumpDonald John TrumpHeitkamp says Trump asked her to switch parties Trump to meet with GOP leaders at White House on Wednesday: report Ex-acting deputy AG Boente was asked to interview with Mueller: report MORE and USA allies have condemned the attack.

He added: "Our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War".

Meanwhile, Europe's air traffic controllers have issued a "rapid alert" for airlines in the Eastern Mediterranean over the possibility of missile strikes on Syria.

The Russians cautioned the USA against striking Syria as it had done after the Assad regime's deadly Khan Sheikhoun chemical attack in 2017.

A spokesperson for the President said: "Both leaders condemned Syrian President Assad's vicious disregard for human life". A United Nations investigation later said the Syrian government was responsible for these strikes.


At the same time, we expect that in the event of USA strikes, if any, the lives of our servicemen will not be in danger.

The Syrian government and its ally Russian Federation have denied that such an attack ever happened.

"So, we are calling on the parties (Russia and the US) to act with restraint and on the regime (of Bashar Assad) to stop supporting terrorist organizations", Canikli said.

Moscow has blamed the first responders in rebel-held areas for Saturday's chemical attack, which killed as many as 60 people and injured more than a 1,000.

The 2,000 US troops in Syria advising local forces on defeating Islamic State militants would be vulnerable to missiles, artillery and other attacks, the former official said.

So much for never telegraphing the administration's military plans.

"If there is a strike by the Americans, then...the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired", Zasypkin told the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Manar TV channel.
