Attack on Syria clear violation of it sovereignty: Leader advisor

Tehran,The senior advisor to Iran's Supreme Leader described the US-led attack on Syria as a violation of this country's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The attack by the US, UK and France on Syria runs counter to the international rules and regulations and is a clear violation of this country's territorial integrity and sovereignty, Ali-Akbar Velayati said on Saturday.

While the UN inspectors have not started investigation into the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria, the US, France and UK's action was an open aggression against a legal government, he added.

Velayati said that the criminals who conducted the attack will be given a strong response.

The official said that the US and its allies conducted the raid to defend terrorists and extend the proxy war in Syria.

The US together with its allies, the UK and France targeted the Syrian capital city of Damascus early Saturday.

The US attack on a military base in Homs, western Syria injured 3 civilians, Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) earlier reported.
