Iran Supreme Leader: US-French presidents, British PM are criminals

Tehran, April 14, IRNA - The US attack on Syria is a military crime, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said on Saturday.

'I explicitly announce that the presidents of US and France and the Prime Minister of the UK are criminals,' Supreme Leader said in a meeting with Iranian officials and ambassadors of the Islamic countries.

“They will take no benefit the same as when they committed such crimes in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, they gained nothing.” He added.

The US together with its allies the UK and France targeted the Syrian capital city of Damascus early Saturday.

The US attack on a military base in Homs, western Syria injured 3 civilians, Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) earlier reported.

More details of the leader's speech will be published soon.
