Tehran (KNA) - A top Russian general says his country will respond to a US strike on Syria, targeting any missiles and launchers involved in such an attack, if the lives of Russian servicemen are threatened.


“There are many Russian advisers, representatives of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides and servicemen in Damascus and at Syrian defense facilities,” the RIA news agency quoted head of Russia's General Staff Valery Gerasimov as saying.The warning came a day after US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said Washington was ready to unilaterally "act" against Syria, just as it did last year when it bombed a Syrian government air base over allegations of a chemical weapons attack.
