US missile strikes on Syrian military positions serve the goals of “armed terrorist groups” and ISIS, the governor of Syria's Homs province said on Friday.
“Syrian leadership and Syrian policy will not change,” Homs governor Talal Barazi said in a phone interview with state television. “This targeting was not the first and I don’t believe it will be the last,” he added.
“The armed terrorist groups and Daesh failed to target the Syrian Arab Army and Russian military positions,” Barazi said. The Syrian government describes all armed groups opposed to it as terrorists.
The US strikes “targeted military positions in Syria and in Homs specifically” in order to publically “serve the goals of terrorism in Syria and the goals of Israel in the long run,” Barazi added. A Syrian military source said earlier the attack on the Syrian air base had led to “losses.”
