Iran, Iraq, and Syria have strongly condemned the US strikes, saying they will only escalate regional tensions.
The attacks are a violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Iraq and Syria, international law, and a clear violation of the United Nations Charter, said Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Nasser Kanaani.
The presence of the US-led military coalition in the region is not welcomed by Iran and its allies, who see it as a threat to their interests. The US airstrikes only further deepen the existing tensions and instability in the region.
This aggressive strike will put security in Iraq and the region on the brink of the abyss, the Iraqi government said in a statement.
