Iran ‘strongly’ condemns US strike on Syria: foreign ministry

Iran on Friday “strongly condemned” a deadly US air strike in Syria, the foreign ministry said, noting the attack risks “intensifying military conflicts” in the region.

Foreign ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh “strongly condemned the illegal attacks by US forces on areas in eastern Syria that are a clear violation of human rights and international law”, according to the statement.

He added the move by “the new US administration (would) lead to intensifying military conflicts and further destabilise the region”.
