A summarize about the #US led strikes against #Syria

At ~ 9:00 PM Syrian time (yesterday)
#Russia warned the #SAA that a hostile attack is imminent.

At 2:00 AM Syrian time a high air activity over #Jordan was noted

(2)
The hostile jets took off from #Qatar #UAE #Cyprus #Jordan and #US vessels in the Red Sea and the Mediterranean were noted preparing to strike.
(3)
At 3:55 the first wave of the hostile missiles began flying over the #Syria/n airspace from the south towards #Damascus

The second wave approached from the south and other missiles flew from Al Swidaa desert near Al Tnaf towards #Homs.
(4)
The third wave came from the Mediterranean Sea over north #Lebanon.
During the first wave, two missiles managed to hit the scientific research center in Barzeh north of #Damascus
(33.5570795,36.3142495)

(5)
During the 2nd wave one missile managed to hit an army base west of #Homs
(34.6725547,36.5618620)
And two missiles were jammed away from targets and hit a residential area
During the 3rd wave two missiles hit an ex-depot near Harsta suburb
(33.6069367,36.3791673)

(6)
Many missile were supposed to target Mazzeh-Dumyar ABs and the scientific research center in Jumraya, the 155 missile brigade, the 105 RG brigade, the 4th Division command, Zydel plant in #Homs, #Damascus international airport.
But with no success.
(7)
The #Syria/n AD Forces used the following systems to engage the missiles:
Pantsir-S1/2
Buk-M2E
S-125/S-1252M
SA-8
SA-2
AA guns
And managed to down over 90 missiles from~97
(8)
The majority of the AD systems which were on duty at the time fired all of it’s arms at the hostile objects, and some units were told to re-arm.

(9)
After the #US confirmed that the attack is over, some hostile objects were still flying towards their targets.
And after the attack a UAV was approaching #Damascus from the west and it was downed by two SA-6 missiles.
The UAV was most likely an #Israel/i.

(10)
The attack resulted in 3 injured civilians near #Homs

The low number of casualties was due to the preparation since #Trump began his Twitter threats, and because the AD systems were very effective in repelling the strike.

Done.
