Several civilians have been killed and wounded in the US raid on a Syrian airfield in Homs province, local officials confirmed.
Governor of Homs province Talal Barazi told reporters that the US strike on a Syrian airfield has led to civilian casualties in a village near the base, as well as the airbase itself.
“The Syrian leadership and Syrian policy will not change,” Barazi said in a phone interview with Syrian state television. “This targeting was not the first and I don’t believe it will be the last.”
He added that Shayrat airbase will be rebuilt and continue to play a role in fighting terrorists.
