People of Syria, still suffer from the prolonged war in the country. The hope that bombings in some parts of the country, with the provision of a ceasefire, has not yet materialized.
There was another bomb attack on Tiyas, one of Syria's air bases, said to be used by Russia, an ally of the Syrian government. The Syrian government said the bomb attack, dropped by a jet fighter, was done by the United States. Another ally, Iran, also declared the attack was carried out by the United States. But Washington denied the allegations.
In a statement, the Iranian government said that the US attack was based on unfit reasons. Last week rumors circulated that the Syrian government has launched attacks using chemical substances.
As reported by Iran's official news agency IRNA, Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said the United States and Western countries made allegations of chemical gas strikes, the reason for military action against Damascus. Bahram Qasemi confirmed that the allegations were untrue. Iran is a supporter of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in a war against US-backed insurgents and their allies.
Countries supporting opponents of Bashar Al Assad government condemned the use of chemical weapons in Douma, the base city of the opposition. From Berlin, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert stated, his government condemned the use of toxic gases. Germany insists that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is responsible for the attack.
The issue of chemical attack followed by air strikes on Syrian territory proves that the turmoil in Syria is still far from being resolved. Hostilities in the country have involved several other foreign parties and become entangled. The result is a prolonged war which has killed many civilians. In the end, it is the Syrian people that have to bear the consequences.
