Last week the US fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at an airbase in Syria in response to a chemical attack in Idlib.  Russian President Vladimir Putin called the US strike an "aggression against a sovereign state in violation of international law”.  The Syrian government insisted it never has and never will use chemical weapons.
