The Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement on Friday deplored the US missile attack on a Syrian airbase in Homs province, warning about negative consequences of Washington’s move in the region.
In a statement, the Lebanese movement cautioned that the “foolish” move by the US military would result in serious tensions in the region.
Such attacks would not demoralize the Syrian army, whose forces are advancing in operations against militants.
The movement further noted that the strike was in line with the Israeli regime’s ambitions in the region.
The United States military launched 59 missiles during the early hours of Friday targeting an airbase in Syria. The strike was the Pentagon’s first direct attack against Syria since the beginning of the conflict in 2011.
Syrian sources said nine civilians, including four children, were killed and seven people were injured.
