Information Minister: US aggression on Syria aimed at supporting terrorism

Speaking in a statement to the Syrian TV Channel on Friday, the Minister said the US’s justification of its aggression on Syria using the chemical attack pretext is very silly, stressing that this aggression will not discourage the Syrian Arab Army from continuing its duty to eliminate terrorism.

Tourjman noted that the US aggression came after the big victories which the Syrian army has been achieving in the war against terrorism and the several local reconciliations carried out in many areas and the progress in the political track, adding that the US practices its arrogance with disregard to international norms and laws.

The Minister said that the air base that was attacked by the US is a specialized base in the fight against terrorism striking the Syrian people.
