Russia’s Federal News Agency revealed footage of the Shayrat airbase, Friday, after the US had launched dozens of tomahawk missiles at the base.

A total of 59 tomahawk missiles were fired at Shayrat Airfield in Homs governorate, at 4:40 local time (00:40 GMT) on Friday. At least six people have been killed in the strikes.

In a press conference, US President Donald Trump confirmed that the strikes were in response to Tuesday’s chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun, for which he claimed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was responsible.

Earlier on Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called US airstrike “an act of aggression under an absolutely trumped up pretext,” which was reminiscent of the build-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
