Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi condemned a US cruise missile attack on a military airbase near the city of Homs in the Western part of Syria, calling it “destructive and dangerous”.


“The US use of a chemical attack in Syria as a pretext for unilateral action is dangerous, destructive and violates the peremptory principles of international laws,” Qassemi said.

The foreign ministry spokesman said the US airstrike would only strengthen the terrorist groups and complicate the situation in Syria and the region.

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