An interesting Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that Federation military commanders have failed to receive an explanation from their US military counterparts on the whereabouts of 36 Tomahawk cruise missiles (valued at $54 million) said by the Americans to have been fired into the Levant War Zone (Syria)—but as of now appear to have just disappeared.

According to the official MoD statement about this incident:
“On April 7, from 3.42 to 3.56 (MSK), two destroyers of the US Navy (USS Ross and USS Porter) made a massive strike with 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from the area near Crete Island against the Syrian Shayrat Air Base (Homs province).
As a result, an equipment depot, a training building, a mess, six MiG-23 aircraft in repairing hangars as well as a radar station were destroyed. The runway, taxiways and aircraft of the Syrian Air Force at parking places were not damaged. According to the information received from the Air Base Command, two Syrian servicemen are missing, 4 were killed and 6 got burning wounds during firefighting.

Confirming the MoD’s initial assessment of this illegal and unprovoked attack by the US on a sovereign nation it is not at war with, this report continues, the Syrian Army Command, likewise, reported:
“At 3:42 am today, the United States of America committed a blatant act of aggression targeting one of our air bases in the Central Region with a number of missiles, leaving 6 people martyred and a number of others injured and causing huge material damage.”
With casualty reports varying from 4-10 dead due to this US attack, this report notes, initial news video of the US-hit Shayrat airbase confirms the MoD’s assessment that the physical damage caused was relatively minor, with the main runways themselves suffering only slight, and superficial, damage.
Approximately 30 minutes prior to this unprovoked attack by the US on Syria, this report states, American military authorities notified Federation military commanders at the Joint Information Center (JIC) in Baghdad, Iraq, of this pending action—thus causing the MoD to immediately suspend the existing US-Russian memorandum on flight safety over Syria enacted to lesson the threat of all-out war occurring…
