Russia, Iran vow forceful response if US strikes Syria again

Russia and Iran in a joint statement say the recent US missile strike on a Syrian airfield in response to a chemical weapons attack crossed “red lines,” and threaten to “respond with force” to further American military efforts in the war-torn country.

“What America waged is an aggression on Syria 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,” Reuters quotes the statement published in the Ilam al-Harbi media outlet as saying.
