The US military attacked the Syrian government’s Shayrat Airfield near Homs with 59 tomahawk missiles Friday morning.
In a post on his Twitter account on Friday, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif showed reaction to the missile attacks.
“As the only recent victim of mass use of chemical weapons (by Saddam in the 80’s), Iran condemns use of all WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction) by anyone against anyone,” Zarif said.
“US aids Saddam’s use of chemical weapons against Iran in the 80’s; then resorts to military force over bogus CW allegations: first in 2003 and now in Syria,” he stated.
“Not even two decades after 9/11, US military [is] fighting on the same side as al-Qaida and ISIS in Yemen and Syria,” Zarif said.
“Time to stop hype and cover-ups,” the Iranian top diplomat added, referring to a move by the US to use the recent chemical attack in Syria’s Idlib province as a pretext to launch missile attacks on Syria.
