Russian Foreign Ministry strongly condemned the US attack on the Syrian-Iraqi border region, stressing that it is “an unacceptable violation of international law.’’

Spokesman for the Pentagon, John Kirby, in a statement last night, confessed that US military forces, instructed by president Joe Biden, launched an attack on the Syrian-Iraqi border area.

Novosti news agency quoted a source at the Russian Foreign Ministry as saying on Friday, that the US bombardment is unacceptable and a violation of international law.

Earlier, First Deputy Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee at the Russian Federation Council, Vladimir Dzhabarov, condemned the US aggression on the Iraqi-Syrian border area, stressing that it is “illegal and an attack on a sovereign state territory”.

The Russian senator told SPUTNIK that “The US shelling of Syria is illegal because we are talking about an attack on the territory of a sovereign State, pointing out that this step is a serious escalation that could lead to an escalation of the situation in the entire region. He warned that such acts could lead to “a large conflict.”

This aggression comes at a time when units of the Syrian Arab Army are hunting remnants of Daesh terrorists in the Syrian al-Badia region.
