BEIRUT (Reuters) – U.S. missile strikes on Syrian military positions serve the goals of “armed terrorist groups” and Islamic State, the governor of Syria’s Homs
province said on Friday.
“Syrian leadership and Syrian policy will not change,” Homs
Governor Talal Barazi said in a phone interview with state television. “This targeting was not the first and I don’t believe it will be the last,” he added.
U.S. President Donald Trump said he ordered missile strikes against a Syrian airfield from which a deadly chemical weapons attack was launched this week, declaring he acted in America’s “national security interest” against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
U.S. officials said the military fired dozens of cruise missiles against the airbase in response to the suspected gas attack in a rebel-held area that Washington has blamed on Assad’s forces.
The Syrian government has strongly denied responsibility.
