MP: US strikes Syria to support terrorists

Karaj, April 16, IRNA -Head of Majlis (parliament) Foreign Policy and National Security Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Monday that the US, Britain and France conducted a military strike on Syria to keep fame and spirit of terrorists who have received humiliating defeats.

Speaking to reporters, he said the US masterminded the seven-year long imposed war on Syria with complicity of Zionists and its European and regional allies.

Following their defeat in their proxy war in Iraq, they gathered thousands of terrorists from round the globe to change Syrian political system but to no avail, he said.

It is a very bitter defeat for a so-called superpower to fail to obtain its desired goals, he said.

Their aggression brought them global condemnation as the world denounces their war-mongering policies, he said.

Since Syria like Iran has always backed Resistance, their aggression lacked military value and will be regarded as a political fiasco for the US, Boroujerdi said.

On the presence of the Iranian military advisors in Syria, he said their presence was at the official request of the Syrian government with the aim of fight against terrorists which was quite successful.

In the absence of Iran and Russia in Syria, all should have witnessed another Libya, he said.

Regional instability and recent circumstances created by the US, Zionists, Britain and France will be responded by regional countries, Boroujerdi said.
