On Sunday, residents in the Syrian capital of Damascus reacted to the recent US-led airstrikes on the city, saying that the move highlights the ÔÇśfailure of the West and the terrorist groups.ÔÇÖ
People claimed that the recent shelling just gave them ÔÇśdeterminationÔÇÖ to fight terrorism, stressing that the strikes cannot affect them and Syria would soon be ÔÇśvictorious.ÔÇÖ
ÔÇťIt feels like we have something inside us that prohibits us from being afraid,ÔÇŁ added another resident, noting that life in Damascus will go on as usual.
The US, UK and France launched airstrikes against multiple government targets in Damascus early on Saturday morning, targeting Syrian civil and military facilities.
The airstrikes were in response to a claim of a supposed chemical weapons attack on Douma last week. Syria and Russia have both denied the allegations, calling them ‘staged’ and a ‘fabrication.’
