On April 7th, US warships delivered an illegal blow to a Syrian airbase in Homs. Their justification was the recent "chemical weapon" attack on behalf of the Syrian government in Idlib. The Kremlin condemned the strike as an act of aggression against a sovereign state, and a violation of international law.
US missile attack on Idlib
Syria has censured a US missile attack targeting an army airbase near Homs as an “act of aggression” against the country.
“A US act of aggression (was committed) against Syrian military targets, using several missiles,” said the Syrian state TV right after the US announced the attack.
The attack drew the applause of the foreign-backed opposition, which called for continued US military action against the Arab country.
