    The latest US missile attack on Syria can further degrade Russian-US relations, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The latest US missile attack on the Sha'irat airfield in Syria further degrades Russian-US relations, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Friday.

    "The actions taken today by the US further destroy Russian-US relations," the ministry said in a statement.

    The United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha'irat near Homs late Thursday. US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on Damascus.

    "Without bothering to figure anything out, the US moved toward a demonstration of strength, to military resistance against a country that is fighting international terrorism," the ministry said.
