Syria urges UN to condemn US attack in Deir Ezzor

Damascus has strongly denounced as a “war crime” a deadly strike carried out by the US-led military coalition against pro-government forces in Syria’s eastern Deir Ezzor province, saying US presence in the country is “illegitimate.”

The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemned the strike in two separate letters sent to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the rotating president of the UN Security Council on Thursday, saying the air raid was “a crime against humanity.”

It further lambasted Washington for using “the excuse of fighting terrorism to set up illegitimate bases on Syrian territory.”
