Damascus [Syria], Jan 20 (ANI): Syria has condemned the continued attacks of the US-led coalition on civilians here.

Syria also stated that the nation has incurred a great loss due to attacks causing damage to infrastructure, economic, service, oil and gas facilities and to public and private properties.
The ministry further referred to the crimes as "systematic and behavioural," stating that the US-led coalition has violated sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic under exposed pretexts.
The war-torn nation emphasised that the coalition which was formed illegally and outside the jurisdiction of the UN Security Council has strengthened the terrorist groups and have increased cooperation and coordination among them.
The letters stressed that activities of the coalition, which was illegally formed outside the jurisdiction of the UN Security Council, have strengthened the extremist terrorist groups, on top of which are Daesh and Jabhat al-Nusra, and increased cooperation and coordination among them.
