Washington D.C. [USA], Feb 24 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump on Friday slammed Russia, Iran and Syria's actions in the ongoing Syrian civil war as 'disgraceful', according to media reports.
"I will say what Russia, Iran and Syria have done recently is a humanitarian disgrace. What those three countries have done to those people over the last short period of time is a disgrace," Trump said.
Elaborating on the US role in Syria to stop the civil war, Trump added, "We're there for one reason, we're there to get ISIS (Islamic State) and get rid of ISIS and go home. We're not there for any other reason and we've largely accomplished our goal."
As of now, regime forces have conducted bombings and airstrikes in Eastern Ghouta over the week, killing over 400 people, which also included hundreds of women and children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
A day after Russia vetoed a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution on the situation in Syria's conflicting region of Eastern Ghouta, the UNSC council will vote on a decree on Friday, calling for a 30-day ceasefire in the war-torn nation, and allowing humanitarian aids be supplied to the area that has been largely exhausted.
Eastern Ghouta, which houses around 400,000 residents, has remained under a crippling regime siege for the last five years.
