This attack is an additional act on the aggressiveness that the people of Syria faces during the last years. It is an attack that culminates the imperialist intervention in Syria and the region. The excuse of the alleged use of chemical weapons in Khan Sheikhoun town does not find reasonable ground since there is no evidence yet to prove the responsibility of the use of the chemical weapons.

The center of the city of Diwaniyah in southern Iraq was shaken just after midnight when two hand grenades were thrown by criminal and rogue elements on the headquarters of the district committee of the Iraqi Communist Party in the province. Although the attack did not, fortunately, lead to human losses, it immediately evoked angry reactions and condemnation. It has raised tension and public anxiety in Diwaniyah that were caused by yesterday's developments at the Qadissiya University.
The Press Office of the CC of the KKE issued the following the statement on the US attacks against Syria:
The KKE denounces the attack of the USA against Syria with the use of missiles from American warships in the Mediterranean and expresses its solidarity with the much afflicted Syrian people.
The peoples know that the USA and its allies, which created criminal organizations like "Al Qaeda" and the "Islamic State", promote and utilize pretexts in order to justify the interventions and the imperialist wars in Syria, Iraq, in the wider region of the Middle East and North Africa, which is an arena of fierce antagonisms, with the peoples being the victims. They did the same in the past too.
It is known all over the world that the USA, the European Union, Turkey and the Gulf monarchies have founded, financed and armed the ISIS. Their goal was dismembering Syria and founding new puppet states in order to steal the region’s wealth.
Today, with the USA bombings against Syria, the government of Trump continues the policy of the previous Presidents. Through these bombings, it supports the ISIS. It makes the situation even more dangerous for a generalized war.
The Syrian Communist Party issued the following statement about yesterday's bombing attack of US forces against Syria:
This attack is a new step of American imperialist aggression on our homeland Syria, which was preceded by inflicting us military units in the North-East for our country, without any justification in customary international law. That transgression is to reflect the general approach of American imperialism in the attack on the sovereignty of states, peoples, expansionist plots to permanent status, which is composed of imperialism.
The enemies of the Syrian people continue to attack this country which they have been tormenting using jihadist gangs and international terrorist networks. The partnership of imperialist media and pro-sharia agents fabricated a chemical weapon scenario in Idlib and so made up a pretext for the missile attack by the United States.
We warn Erdoğan: We are going to bring you to book for the jihad that you intend to wage with US missiles. No! Do not you dare to add new ones to the crimes that you have already committed and to involve this country in your own devastation.
The World Peace Council denounces and condemns the recent missile attacks of the USA against Syrian targets on 6th April,as an act of further escalation of the imperialist intervention in Syria and the region, based on the alleged use of chemical weapons in Khan Sheikhoun town near Idleb by the Syrian army, a crime with suspicious motives.
The United States conducted strikes against Syrian government troops in the early hours of April 7, using chemical weapons attacks in Idlib Province as a pretext.
The US opted for a show of force, for military action against a country fighting international terrorism without taking the trouble to get the facts straight.
It is not the first time that the US chooses an irresponsible approach that aggravates problems the world is facing, and threatens international security. The very presence of military personnel from the US and other countries in Syria without consent from the Syrian government or a UN Security Council mandate is an egregious and obvious violation of international law that cannot be justified. While previous initiatives of this kind were presented as efforts to combat terrorism, now they are clearly an act of aggression against a sovereign Syria. Actions undertaken by the US today inflict further damage to the Russia-US relations.
