Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Saturday condemned the US-led missile attacks on Syria, saying the "criminal act” would yield no results. 
"I declare that the president of the United States, the president of France and the British prime minister are criminals," the Leader said in a meeting with senior government officials and ambassadors from  Muslim countries, his official website reported.  
US, British and French forces attacked the war-ravaged Arab country with more than 100 missiles late on Friday in the first coordinated western strikes, Reuters reported.
They targeted what they claimed were chemical weapons sites in retaliation for a alleged chlorine gas attack that the West claimed had been carried out by forces of President Bashar al-Assad. Moscow and Damascus strongly denounced the bombing.     
Syria, a signatory to the Chemical Weapons Convention, denies it possesses chemical weapons and has branded the use of such arms "immoral and unacceptable".
