Syria presidential advisor: West strikes do not frighten Syrians
Bouthaina Shaaban, the Political and Media Adviser to the President of Syria said the Western coalition air strikes could not frighten the Syrian people.
According to Russian media ‘RT Arabic’, Shaaban made the remarks Monday night in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper.
This is a fact that not only the Trump’s missiles were not precise and smart but Syrian air defense was smarter, she said.
The US together with its allies, the UK and France targeted the Syrian capital city of Damascus early Saturday.
The US attack on a military base in Homs, western Syria injured 3 civilians, Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) earlier reported.
When the attack happened, the Syrian people instead of going to shelters went to the roof to see how Syria’s air defense would shoot down scores of Western missiles, she added.
The media affiliated with the terrorists had claimed that the Syrian jet fighters conducted a chemical attack on Douma last Saturday killing 75 people and injuring scores of others.
This is while Syria had earlier warned against terrorists’ attempts to orchestrate chemical attack scenario in Eastern Ghouta.
