US brutal attack on Syria flagrant, heinous crime
Mehr News Agency – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized that military attack of US and its allies including UK and France on Syria today is condemned and is a flagrant crime beyond international norms.
He pointed his finger to the presidents of the US, France and British prime minister and called them criminals who carried out heinous act in Syria. Speaking on the occasion of Feast of Mab’ath (Prophetic Mission of Holy Prophet of Islam) in the presence of state officials, authorities and ambassadors of Islamic countries, he called on all Islamic nations to practice unity and amity in the current situation.
Referring to recent US President’s claim in respect to defeating ISIL by US, leader said, “The US played a major role in creating ISIL. They (Americans) interfered where ISIL members were trapped in a bid to save them. They raised the wicked creatures with Saudi money, breaking them loose to attack the Iraqi and Syrian nations; but, resistance against the US and their agents rescued these countries.”
“This morning’s attack on Syria is a crime. I firmly declare that the presidents of US and France and British PM committed a major crime. They will make no gains; just as they did not while being in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan in the past years, committing the same criminal acts,’ the Supreme Leader noted. In the end, the Leader said that experience has shown that these countries would not gain any profit as they waged military actions over the past years in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan.
Ayatollah Khamenei went on to say, “A few days ago the US president said Washington spent $7 trillion in West Asia and hasn’t gained a thing. He is right. They didn’t gain anything. The US should know that in the future, too, no matter how much money they spend, they will definitely gain nothing in this region.”
