Greece Condemns US Actions in Syria

Today morning Greek Ministry of National Defence released a statement and criticized the U.S. strike on Syrian airbase in Homs.
So, Greece opposes the U.S. military intervention in Syria’s affairs as it doesn’t contribute to speedy settlement of the armed conflict in Syria.
This statement of Greece has been realized in response to the missile attack on Syrian airbase of Al-Shayrat in the province of Homs by 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles, fired from two US warships operating in the eastern Mediterranean.
Let us remind you, that about 15 Syrian jets were destroyed in the U.S. strike. As a result of these actions a significant damage was also caused to Syria’s defense capability in fight against terrorist organizations.
It is interesting to note that the target of the U.S. missile attack was a military airbase; according to the American side from where a chemical attack was launched in the province of Idlib, earlier this week. However nine civilians including four children have been killed and seven other were badly wounded in the surrounding area in this raid. At least 6 servicemen have been killed; some of them are not Syrians.
The U.S. actions in Syria once again have proved that Washington is not interested in the fate of Syrians who are tired of injustice of the terrorists, the indifference of the world community and yearn for peace. Instead of giving the Syrians an opportunity to determine their own affairs, the U.S. authorities make efforts in order to discredit the policy of the current President and hinder the peaceful resolution of the Syrian crisis.
