The command centre for the two countries and allied groups released a joint statement today saying they would ‘respond to future breaches of red lines with force’ RUSSIA and Iran have said they will respond to further American military actions following the air strike in Syria last week.

Russia and Iran released a joint statement promising to respond to US aggression
The statement read: “What America waged in 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.”
The warning comes on the same day that:
- A Russian politician warned the North Koreans could strike at any time
- A seven-year-old Syrian girl tweeted her support for Trump’s missile strike
- The President blasted claims his 59-missile strike on Syrian airfield missed targets
- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani condemned “flagrant US aggression on Syria” following the missile strike on a Syrian air base in response to a suspected chemical attack by the Syrian government on innocent civilians.
The Iranian leader, a key ally of Syria’s dictator Bashar al-Assad, called yesterday for an impartial investigation into the chemical attack that killed at least 70 people.
He warned that the American strikes in response risked escalating extremism in the region, reported Iranian state television.
In a phone call with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, Rouhani told him: “Allegations that Syria launched the chemical attack were just a pretext to disrupt the Syrian peace, process.”
However, the evidence that the Assad regime carried out the horrific chemical attack is nearly overwhelming.
Autopsies confirmed there were chemical agents used in the bombing, which witnesses said was carried out by Syrian aircraft.
