I think that's where Putin let Trump blow up a few buildings and destroy a couple of aircraft that were probably half cannibalized for parts already so he could look tough and stay in power where Putin wants him.
The weapons used were not designed for cratering runways.

so you are saying that they left the runways intact so they could use them or so that the Syrians could?

I know what they said that the target was, from your post I am not sure that you do. That is why I asked YOU that question.

You can answer your own question by simply considering if Trump is considering boots on the ground and full scale invasion.

If not, he left the runways intact for the use of Syrian and Russian aircraft.

Quite the message.
Thanks from Sabcat and GhostRider

Yep, from the horse's mouth, Pravda:

Silence of Russian S-300 and S-400 systems in Syria prevented nuclear war

After the United States struck a missile blow on Shayrat airfield in Syria's Homs, many wondered why Russian sophisticated air defence systems, such as Pantsir, S-300, S-400, Buk-M2 and Tor complexes, have not protected Syria from 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles launched by Ross and Porter destroyers.
Predictably, Russian liberals and Ukrainian activists rejoiced at the US cruise missile attack by claiming that the US has thus showed its superiority over Russia.

However, military experts explained that Russian air defences were deployed in Syria in agreement with the legitimate Syrian government to protect Russian facilities - the airfield, bases, troops and infrastructure of the Russian Air Force.

In the past, Russia supplied certain air defence elements to Syria, but those complexes are maintained and operated by Syrian servicemen, who failed to respond accordingly. Russia could obviously intercept USA's low-flying targets with the use of Pantsir systems. Yet, Russia was notified about the missile strike in advance to be able to evacuate its military and civilian personnel from Shayrat airbase in case Russian citizens were present there.

That said, we have Israel and Turkey bombing Syria every now and then, while Russia covers only its own military infrastructure in the country. I would not exclude that the Russian administration took a political decision not to intercept the US missiles, because it would have been a conflict between Russia and the USA on the level of air defence interception," military expert Vladislav Shurygin said.

The USA warned Russia of the cruise missile attack, and Russia warted Syria. Syria removed its personnel from the airfield before US missiles fell there. Russia made a wise move to postpone its response, and Russia will respond accordingly," he concluded.

The odds are almost certain that they passed this information onto Assad.

A hole in a runway is easily repaired. Buildings are where the infrastructure is.

Yes YES! WE got the message that Trump wasn't trying to kill people. Unfortunately HE DID. According to NewsWeek: Nine civilians, including four children, were killed in the United States missile attack on a military airbase in Homs province in the early hours of Friday morning, the Syrian state news agency has said.
The report from SANA cited civil sources as stating that two missiles struck the al-Shairat airbase, resulting in the deaths of five civilians, including three children, and damage to houses. It adds that another U.S. missile fell in a nearby village, around two miles away from the airbase, killing four civilians, including one child.
Warning the Russians MUST have been the proper thing to do--Sure glad the Russians weren't hit.....just Syrian children and civilians. Maybe the Russians forgot to tell the Syrian civilians...?
