The United States' aggression on the Shayrat airbase early Friday was a “reckless and irresponsible” act that only reflects short-sightedness and political and military blindness, the office of the Syrian president said.
In a statement, the presidency said, “In an unjust and arrogant aggression, the United States targeted at dawn on Friday the airport of Shayrat in the countryside of Homs.”
“The U.S.' targeting of an airport of a sovereign state is an outrageous act that clarifies in conclusive evidence once again what Syria has been saying, that the succession of administrations of this regime does not change the deep policies of its entity, which is represented by targeting states, subjugating peoples and the attempt to dominate the world,” the statement added.
The presidency said that the attack has only increased Syria’s determination to continue to strike and crush terrorists wherever they are.
