Speaker’s Advisor: US Missile Attacks on Syria’s Airbase Meant to Support Terrorists
TEHRAN (FNA)- Senior Advisor to the Iranian Parliament Speaker Hossein Amir Abdollahian blasted the western countries for supporting the terrorist groups in Syria, and said the US deliberately attacked Syria’s Shayrat airbase with cruise missiles in Homs province to boost the morale of the terrorist groups.
“The US missile attacks not improved the terrorists’ low-spirit, it also persuaded them to commit more terrorist crimes against women and children in Fua’a and Kafraya,” Amir Abdollahian said.
The Iranian parliament speaker’s advisor, meantime, appreciated the Syrian government’s efforts to rescue residents of Fua’a and Kafraya from terrorists’ hands, and said, “The resistance of the Syrian people and patience of the residents of Fua’a and Kafraya are admirable.”
In relevant remarks on Sunday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Jaberi Ansari took the warmongers and supporters of terrorist groups responsible for the Saturday suicide attack on buses full of evacuees as they waited in a rebel-held area on the outskirts of Aleppo.
The scenes of martyrdom of these people are really painful and “a new scandal for the warmongers” and those who “have been instrumentally using terrorism for over 6 years” in Syria, Jaberi Ansari said.
He extended his condolences to the Syrian people and families of the victims, and said the best soothing for them is all-out and sincere efforts to end the devastating and deadly war in Syria.
The death toll in a blast that occurred near a bus convoy evacuating residents from Shiite towns of Fua’a and Kafraya in Idlib to Aleppo rose to 100.
The car with the attacker approached the buses disguised as a vehicle transporting food.
The explosion hit the Rashideen Area on Aleppo’s outskirts, as the bus was waiting for entering the city of Aleppo.
The blast was apparently caused by a suicide attacker who detonated an explosive device.
On Friday, a convoy of 75 buses arrived in Aleppo, evacuating thousands from the cities under attack.
