Tehran, SANA-Iran’s Shura Council Assistant Speaker for International Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian stressed that the US aggression against one of the Syrian Arab army positions in Deir Ezzor came in the framework of strengthening the terrorist groups, saying “We vehemently condemn the aggression and we don’t consider it a military mistake.”
Meeting Syria’s Ambassador in Tehran Dr. Adnan Mahmoud on Monday, Abdollahian affirmed that what the US is doing in the Syrian airspace represents a blatant violation of the international law as it is done without the approval of the Syrian Government.
He indicated that the aggression launched by US aircrafts against the Syrian army which is fighting against terrorism, disclosed the hidden agendas of the US and its support to the ISIS terrorist organization.
Abdollahian added that Russia should be aware of the fact that the US betrays its promises as it launched the aggression against the Syrian army after a short period of the start of the truce regime.
For his part, Ambassador Mahmoud asserted that the US aggression exposed to the whole world the falsity of the US claims on fighting terrorism in Syria since establishing the alleged alliance in this regard in 2014 as it unveiled its direct support to the ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and other terrorist organizations.
The Ambassador clarified that the goal behind the US aggression against the Syrian army is to change the field equation in the interest of the terrorist groups.
