The Syrian General Staff has reported that three persons had been injured in the Western missile attack on Syria.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry has denounced the joint US, British and French strike on the country as a "brutal, barbaric aggression," saying that the attack "aims at hindering the mission's work and preempting its results."
Earlier, a local security source told Sputnik that at least 6 civilians have been injured as a result of a missile strike on a military depot to the west of Homs. Also, Syrian Arab News Agency SANA reported that at least three civilians were injured as a result of the western states' strike on a Syrian military facility in Homs.
According to Syria's Ministry of Information, Western media are exaggerating the scale of US, UK and French strikes against the targets in Syria.
"The Ministry of Information calls on citizens not to trust any media reports, which are deliberately or un-deliberately exaggerating the number of targets and consequences of the trilateral aggression," the ministry said, as quoted by Syrian State Television.
While Damascus has not made any official statements on the total scale of the damages or casualties which resulted from the West's strikes yet, Syria's state-run SANA news agency reported that missile strikes carried out by the UK, France and Britain on a research center in Damascus had only caused minor damage.
"Several missiles from the three countries [the US, the UK and France], which struck a research facility, have only caused material damage to a building, which includes an educational center and scientific labs," SANA reported.
