The Syrian foreign ministry on Monday condemned airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition that targeted Syrian army positions on Sunday in the country’s eastern province.
According to Syrian state news agency SANA, the country’s foreign ministry said the aggression by the U.S.-led coalition constitutes an impediment to the counter-terror efforts.
The ministry also “stresses again” that the coalition “lacks credibility and seriousness in fighting terrorism effectively”.
The statement said four coalition warplanes on Sunday targeted a Syrian military camp in Deir al-Zour with nine rockets, killing three soldiers and wounding 13 others.
The attack also led to the destruction of three armored vehicles, four personnel carriers and machine guns.
The statement said the attack occurred at a time when the Syrian army is fighting terror groups across the country.
The ministry called on the international community to condemn the attack, the first by the U.S.-led coalition to target Syrian army positions since it started airstrikes on targets in Syria over a year ago.
