Hezbollah: Trump's attack serves the Zionists
Nasrallah's organization: ‘The attack in Syria is a foolish step that will increase the tension in the region and serves Israel's interests.’
Hezbollah said Friday that US President Donald Trump's move was a foolish step that would only lead to great danger and tension in the Middle East, which serves Israel's interests.



"This new crime shows that the Trump administration is determined to continue the constant aggression the United States has adopted against our nation to serve the Zionist entity and to achieve its ambitions in the region." The statement also said that "this is a foolish step carried out by the Trump administration, which will lead to great and dangerous tension in the region, and will only complicate the situation in the world."



Hassan Nasrallah's terrorist organization added that there was no chance that the American attack would harm the spirit of the Syrian army, which had scored many victories over the "terrorists" as he put it: "This will not affect the alliance of resistance and its steadfastness (i.e., Hezbollah and its ally) in the ongoing war against terrorism."


Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that the cruise missiles fired by the US military on the Syrian military base were very close to causing a confrontation between the US army and the Russian army. It was reported that US officials had updated the Russian forces shortly before the attack that they were planning to attack, thus avoiding harming Russian forces.


Against the backdrop of fears of escalation in the region, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on all parties involved in the war to show restraint so as not to add to the suffering of the Syrians.


In the West, meanwhile, Trump is on the receiving end of something unusual: a flood of compliments, some very correct and some quite warm, from senior Western officials—even those who tend to criticize him. During the day, he received reinforcements from Germany, France, Britain and other European countries. Many Arab and Muslim countries also expressed support for his move, including Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.
