Damascus said on Wednesday that the United States' recent claims against Syria demonstrate a lack of principles, values, wisdom and rationality, adding that the chemical weapons pretext is an unsubstantiated, flimsy argument to target Syria.
Speaking to SANA, an official source at the Foreign Ministry said that the reckless escalation by the U.S. is not a surprise as it comes from a country that has sponsored and is still sponsoring terrorism in Syria.
“If the U.S. regime and its allies, namely the France and the U.K., believed that their actions and statements will stop the fight against terrorism in Syria, they are mistaken. The Syrian state will continue to counter terrorism,” said the source.
