Envoy denies Iranian positions, advisors were targeted in US attacks on Syria

Tehran, IRNA – Iranian Ambassador to Syria Hossein Akbari has denied US claims about targeting Iranian bases and military advisors in Syria, saying recent US attacks on Syria were aimed at destroying the civil infrastructure of the country.

Writing in a post on social media on Saturday following last night's air strikes by the US on Syria, Akbari said that the “terrorist action" carried out by the US government in Syria was more than anything else an attempt to offset the defeats of the Israeli regime in Gaza and to create a vacuum on the borders of Iraq and Syria in order to support armed Takfiri terrorists.

US Central Command (CENTCOM) said early on Saturday that it had carried out attacks in Syria and Iraq in what it said was a retaliation for an attack on a US base in Jordan last Sunday which killed three American military personnel.
