Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani denounced the recent US missile attack on a Syrian airbase as a testimony to Washington’s support for terrorist groups.

Shamkhani warned that such criminal acts would only complicate the political and security conditions in Syria, Tasnim News Agency reported.

While political and military trends have targeted the destruction of terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq, the US missile attack on a Syrian government’s airbase near Homs reveals a “quite purposeful” act of boosting the moral and military capabilities of terrorists, Shamkhani said on Friday.  The Iranian security chief’s comments came after the US launched a missile attack on the Syrian airbase near Homs with 59 tomahawk missiles on Friday. Officially announcing the strike, US President Donald Trump claimed that the targeted airfield had launched a chemical attack on the militant-held area in Idlib. Shamkhani reminded the US government of its “bitter experiences” in Iraq and Afghanistan in the wake of military aggression “under bogus and suspicious pretexts.”
