  1. The US strikes on the Syrian airbase are “reckless and irresponsible actions” that risk further destabilizing the situation in the Middle East and lead to the emergence of new military conflicts and the expansion of those that already exist, the first deputy chair of the Russian State Duma’s Defense Committee, Andrey Krasnov, said.

    "The United States wants to stir up a big fire in the Middle East and by launching 59 cruise tactical missiles they added fuel to the flame," he added, as cited by RIA Novosti.
