White House officials did not reply to a request for more detail on Trump's remarks. "The United States has developed a new generation of electronic warfare munitions and decoys created to help USA strikes reach their targets, which could also see action".

He said Syria's air defenses were ineffective and that numerous more than 40 surface-to-air missiles fired by the Syrians were launched after the allied attack was over.
For the moment, the likelihood of more military action appeared diminished.
"The context of the relations has changed radically in the past year: We're in a state of a real and tangible Cold War", Lukyanov said.
"The department does not comment on potential future military actions".
