Syria: ‘Western failure’ – Damascus residents condemn US-led strikes

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 ‘failure of the West and the terrorist groups.’

People claimed that the recent shelling just gave them ‘determination’ to fight terrorism, stressing that the strikes cannot affect them and Syria would soon be ‘victorious.’

“It feels like we have something inside us that prohibits us from being afraid,” 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.’
