Iran’s Foreign Ministry has condemned Israel’s repeated airstrikes against Syria, saying the attacks were aimed at weakening the Syrian government.

“There was no doubt that the inroads were aimed at weakening Syria's legitimate government and in line with reinforcing Takfiri terrorists who have moved closer to the annihilation and defeat in the battlegrounds day by day,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said.

Qassemi also said that the military attacks were violations of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of an independent state, which is a member of the UN. “So, the raids flouted international laws and regulations,” he said.

It came after Israel attacked an area near the International Airport in the Syrian capital, Damascus, on Thursday.

Israel has been conducting military operations against the Syrian government since the beginning of the foreign-backed conflict in Syria in 2011.

The Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, has also criticized the United States for trying to establish global domination.

Assad said the U.S. president “is doing what he is told to do by the CIA, the Pentagon and major oil companies.

“During his electoral campaign and after it, Trump tried to change the nature of U.S. policies, but failed. A huge pressure was exerted on him,” he added.
