US, Allies Responsible for Regional Fallout of Syria Raids: Iran

An Israeli defense official confirmed that it was the Israeli Air Force that struck the T-4 air base in Homs, Syria, last week, The New York Times reported on Monday. According to the reports, the attack targeted a large weapons and ammunition warehouse at Jebel Azan, outside Aleppo.

"It was the first time we attacked live Iranian targets - both facilities and people", the senior military source told Friedman.

The media reports were contrasted with denials of the attack by supporters of the Syrian government.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has termed the recent air strikes conducted by the Westerners on Syria as a "crime".

When asked whether Russian Federation was prepared to work with the proposals of Western countries at the United Nations, Ryabkov told TASS news agency: "We will work calmly, methodically and professionally, using all opportunities to remove the situation from its current extremely unsafe political peak".


The three countries defended the action at an emergency council meeting Saturday, with the U.S. vowing to take further action should the Assad regime launch another attack using weapons of mass destruction.

President Donald Trump, in a press conference on Friday evening, condemned Russian Federation and Iran for being complicit in the Assad regime's crimes against humanity.

Britain and France joined the United States in the strikes in a coordinated operation that was meant to show Western resolve in the face of what the leaders of the three nations called persistent violations of global law. It fears Iran could use Syrian territory to stage attacks or form a land corridor from Iran to Lebanon that could allow it to transfer weapons more easily to Hezbollah.

Israel on Saturday welcomed the strikes against Syria, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday saying Israel "fully supports" the military action against Syrian military targets. They concluded that the attack was consistent with previous attacks carried out by the regime and said no other groups had the means and capabilities to use sarin gas.
