US, UK, French attack on Syria 'a crime'

Initial reports said the explosions were heard at Jabal Azan, a small Iranian base south of Aleppo.

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

Syrian state media reported only three people injured, while Russia's defense ministry said there were "no victims" among Syrian civilians and military personnel. A top Pentagon official, Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie, said the action would set back Syria's chemical weapons program "for years".

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has strongly denounced joint airstrikes by the U.S., United Kingdom and France on Syria as a "crime", saying the leaders of the three countries are "criminals".

On Saturday, the UN Security Council rejected a resolution put forward by Russian Federation condemning the strikes by the US, Britain, and France.

Speaking during a meeting with high-ranking political and military figures, Khamenei added: "The American president says he attacked Syria to fight against chemical weapons".

"After examining the videos and images of victims published online, they (intelligence services) were able to conclude with a high degree of confidence that the vast majority are recent and not fabricated", the report said.

Israel, which was not involved in Saturday's unprecedented wave of missile strikes but expressed full support, has unilaterally launched air raids on targets inside Syria on several occasions.

Putin said Russian investigators have found no evidence of a chemical attack in Douma.

The bombings, hailed by US President Donald Trump as a success but denounced by Damascus and its allies as an act of aggression, marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Assad and ally Russian Federation, whose Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called them "unacceptable and lawless". 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.
