A joint military command for the Syrian operation consisting of Russian, Syrian and Hezbollah has released a joint statement warning the US against crossing the ‘red lines’ in Syria as reported by Ilam al Harbi news agency.
According to the statement, Iran and Russia will ‘respond with force’ against any further American actions in Syria.
“What America waged in an aggression on Syria and is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well,” the statement published by the group on media outlet Ilam al Harbi reads.
The statement released in Arabic states that the allied operations center recognizes that the US is supporting the separation of northern Syria and Iraq from their respective states.
There has been no confirmation yet in Russian state media indicating whether Russia has signed this statement.
