Russia will shoot down US missiles fired at Syria and retaliate against launch sites, says ambassador

Russia's ambassador to Lebanon has said any US missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launch sites targeted.
Alexander Zasypkin, in comments broadcast on Tuesday evening, said he was referring to a statement by Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian chief of staff.
"If there is a strike by the Americans then... the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired," he told Hezbollah's al-Manar TV.
