Syrian military: ‘Three people injured’
The allies fired 110 missiles during the attack but most of them were “effectively shot down”, the Syrian military has claimed.
Brigadier General Ali Mayhoub read a statement on Syrian television saying one of the missiles hit a “scientific research centre” in Barzeh, near Damascus, damaging a building.
Another, in Homs, injured three people, he said.
He added that the attacks “will not deter” the Syrian military from its ongoing war to eradicate “armed terrorists” from its territory.
Syria’s foreign ministry claimed the attack was aimed at hindering the work of a fact-finding team from the international chemical weapons watchdog who were due to visit the site of the alleged chemical attack in Douma on Saturday.
