“During the US chopper attack on Syria on Sunday, innocent people were killed, and again children were among the dead,” Hassan Qashqavi told reporters at his weekly press conference in Tehran Monday.

He added, “We actually condemn any attack which violates national sovereignty of countries and leads to civilian casualties. Such invasions are unacceptable.”
