Iran's Supreme Leader Khamenei calls air strikes 'major crimes'

 Apr 15, 2018

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has accused the US and its allies of committing a "major crime" with its trilateral strikes on Syrian targets overnight, in a tweet on Saturday morning.

"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 gain no benefit; just as they did not while in Iraq, Syria & Afghanistan, over the past years, committing the same criminal acts", a CNN report said.

Separately, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Deputy Commander for Political Affairs Brigadier General Yadollah Javani condemned the US-led missile strikes, according to a report from Iran's semi-official Fars News Agency.

"The Americans imagine that they can change the conditions on the ground in Syria by such measures, but certainly this will not happen, " he is quoted by Fars as saying. "The US should account for the consequences of the future events in the region and certainly those events will not be to their interest." (UNI)
