US-Led Missile Attack on Syria Illegal, Blatant Aggression: President Assad

Alwaght- Syrian President Bashar Assad has returned his Legion of Honor award, France’s most prestigious decoration, given to him by Jacques Chirac in 2001, saying he will not wear honors bestowed by a “slave country” that bombs Syria.

“The ministry of foreign affairs... has returned to the French republic... the decoration of the Grand Croix of the Légion d'honneur awarded to President Assad,” the Syrian Presidency announced on Twitter, noting that the medal was returned to Paris through the Romanian Embassy representing French interests in the country.

The decision to return the French state’s highest honor was made over the "participation of France in the tripartite aggression" against Syria on April 14. Following the US-led strikes, which also involved British air power, Bashar found it unacceptable to wear [an] award issued by a “slave country and follower of the United States” that supports terrorists and violates the “most elementary norms and principles of the International law,” an announcement tweet reads, citing presidential sources.

The United States, the UK and France attacked Syria on Saturday, claiming that Damascus was behind an alleged chemical attack the town of Douma, Eastern Ghouta.

French President Emmanuel Macron was accused by the opposition of compromising the independence of a country that famously stayed out of former US President George W. Bush’s 2003 invasion of Iraq.

National Front leader Marine Le Pen tweeted that the strikes expose France to “unpredictable and potentially dramatic consequences,” and criticized Macron for not taking an “independent” stance.
