Iran base or advisors not hit by US

Iran's Ambassador to Damascus says no Iranian bases or military advisors have been targeted in deadly strikes by the US occupation forces on a number of sites in Iraq and Syria.

Hossein Akbari said that contrary to claims, the attacks aimed to destroy Syria's civil infrastructure amid the pro-Palestine actions undertaken by the resistance front.

He said the US government's terrorist act on Friday night was carried out mainly to make up for Israel's defeats in the Gaza Strip and strengthening armed Takfiri terrorists based on the borders of Iraq and Syria.

The US Central Command (CENTCOM) said in a statement on Friday that its forces had struck more than 85 targets “with numerous aircraft” during overnight raids on localities in Iraq and Syria.

The Syrian state media reported that the US aggression targeted positions in Syria’s eastern governorate of Deir ez-Zur and the city of al-Bukamal near the Iraqi border, falling short of providing details on the extent of damage and the exact number of casualties.

Sixteen people were killed, among them civilians, and 25 injured in the US airstrikes in Iraq, Prime Minister Mohammed Shia' al-Sudani's office said.
