The operative headquarters of the Syrian allies, which includes the forces of the Lebanese Hezbollah and Iran, declared their readiness to strike at the positions of the US military in the Arab republic, if necessary.
In the statement of the headquarters, the text of which is broadcast by RIA Novosti, it is said that "the blood of Syrian sons, the Syrian Arab army and its allies is not cheap".
The staff called Washington's actions "cowardly aggression" and evidence of "US hypocrisy in the fight against terrorism." They said that they intend to act if the US crosses the "red lines".
The headquarters spoke with such a statement after the US-led international coalition struck a new blow on the Syrian pro-government forces in At-Tanf in the south of the country on Tuesday, killing two people.
Moscow noted that this blow violated international law, and demanded the convening of an extraordinary meeting of the UN Security Council. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the US blow is an act of aggression against the Arab Republic, a violation of its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
