Trump tells Russia to ‘get ready’ for Syria missile strikes

Latest news

    US President Donald Trump told Russia in an early morning tweet to prepare for “nice and new and ‘smart!'” missile strikes in Syria after an alleged gas attack on the last rebel stronghold in the country.

    The tweet came after the Russian ambassador to Lebanon said in an interview on Tuesday with Hezbollah-owned al-Manar TV that “if there is a US missile attack, we – in line with both Putin and Russia’s chief of staff’s remarks – will shoot down US rockets and even the sources that launched the missiles”.

    Trump further chided Russia for its support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Wednesday’s tweet, saying it “shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”
