Syrian Presidency: ‘Irresponsible’ US attack will only strengthen our determination

The United States’ deadly attack on the Syrian military’s airfield is irresponsible and shortsighted, the Syrian presidential press office said Friday.

“The office of the Syrian president emphasises that the US actions are frivolous, irresponsible and shortsighted,” the presidency said in a statement. “They were naively dragged into this because of a lying propaganda campaign.”

It noted that the Thursday attack “clearly explains once again that the change of administrations in this regime does not change its policy.”

“If the US regime thought that this attack could support its allies from terrorist groups on the ground, then Syria affirms that this attack only strengthened the republic’s determination to fight terrorists,” the presidency stressed.
