Iran Leader Slams Criminal US, UK, French Attack on Syria as Crime

Alwaght- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said the recent tripartite Western missile attack on the Arab country was a blatant act of aggression against a sovereign state.

The Syrian president made the remarks during a meeting with a delegation representing the United Russia, the ruling political party of the Russian Federation, in the capital Damascus on Sunday adding that the aggression was sheer violation of the international law. The remarks came a day after the armed forces of the US, Britain and France hit different targets in Syria with a barrage of cruise missiles.

President al-Assad said the tripartite missile aggression on Syria was accompanied by a campaign of misinformation and lies at the Security Council against Syria and Russia by the countries that carried out the aggression. He noted that recent developments proves once again that the two countries are fighting the same battle not only against terrorism, but also to protect international law which is based on respecting the sovereignty of states and the will of their peoples.

For their part, the members of the delegation said that the tripartite aggression is a clear violation of international accords, and came at a time when the Syrians are working to restore stability and rebuild what was destroyed by terrorism.

They affirmed that Russia will remain firm in its support for Syria in the face of the war targeting it.

The strikes, conducted during the early hours of Saturday, hit three sites, one in Damascus, and two in the city of Homs, which US President Donald Trump claimed were “associated with the chemical weapon capabilities” of the Syrian government.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, Syrian air defense units were scrambled to thwart the aerial invasion, intercepting 71 out of 105 cruise missiles.

The tripartite Western countries announced that strikes were carried out as a punitive measure against Damascus for a suspected poison gas attack they claimed was purportedly conducted on April 7 by the Syrian government on Douma, the largest town in Eastern Ghouta near the Syrian capital, which reportedly killed 60 people and injured hundreds more. 

However, Damascus strongly rejected the accusations as “chemical fabrications” made by the terrorists themselves in a bid to halt recent advances by pro-government forces against terrorists.
