MEXICO, February 27 – RIA Novosti. The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry condemned the US missile strike on targets in Syria, calling it Washington's return to an endless war. “Venezuela strongly condemns the US military attack on Syrian territory and expresses strong solidarity with the people and government of this brotherly country. It is regrettable that Washington is returning to endless war and moves away from diplomacy and international law, “the ministry said in a statement on Twitter.
Earlier, the Pentagon reported that the US attacked several buildings on the Syrian-Iraqi border, which were used by a number of Iran-backed paramilitary groups, including Kataib Hezbollah and Kataib Sayyid al-Shuhada. According to the Pentagon, a number of infrastructure facilities of Shiite groups were destroyed. The move, the Pentagon noted, was a response to recent attacks on US and coalition forces in Iraq.
