Russian President Vladimir Putin commented Tuesday on the U.S. missile strike targeting a Syrian airbase after the deadly chemical attack in Idlib. Putin claimed that Russia has information indicating that Washington is already planning to attack Syria again.

“We have information indicating a provocation similar to the one we saw is already in the planning stages,” said Putin during a meeting with his Italian counterpart Sergio Mattarella, who is currently visiting Moscow.

Putin added that America is planning to fake chemical attacks in Syria: “In other parts of Syria, such as the southern Damascus suburbs, they are planning to plant substances and then accuse the Syrian regime of additional chemical attacks.” However, Putin did not offer any proof to back up his claims.
