Iran Strongly Condemns ‘Dangerous’ US Strike on Syria Airbase

Iran has strongly condemned a US cruise missile attack on a Syrian army airbase near the west-central city of Homs, calling it “destructive and dangerous”.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Friday US use of a chemical attack in Syria as a “pretext for unilateral action is dangerous, destructive and violation of peremptory principles of international laws.”

Some 60 US Tomahawk missiles were fires from US warships deployed to the Mediterranean at the Shayrat airfield southeast of Homs earlier in the day, in an assault slammed by Syria as an “act of aggression.”
