“The attack this morning against Syria is a crime,” Khamenei said in remarks published on his Telegram channel.

“The American president, the French president and the British prime minister are criminals, they will gain nothing from it,” he said.

Speaking during a meeting with high-ranking political and military figures, Khamenei added: “The American president says he attacked Syria to fight against chemical weapons. He is lying.”

The United States, France and Britain said they launched the air strikes against Syrian government military installations in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack by the regime a week ago — a claim dismissed by Damascus and its allies Russia and Iran.
