In a forceful denouncement, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla criticized the United States' military actions in Syria and Iraq, labeling them as blatant violations of sovereignty that could potentially escalate into a regional conflict. 

"The U.S. aggression against Syria and Iraq constitutes a flagrant violation of the countries' sovereignty. Such irresponsible actions contravene international law, exacerbate violence, and contribute to the likelihood of a regional conflict," Parrilla stated.

The U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) announced it had conducted airstrikes in Iraq and Syria targeting the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and its affiliated groups.

According to RT's correspondent, the bombings targeted areas in the countryside of Mayadin and Bukamal in eastern Syria, as well as positions of Iraqi factions in the Al-Qaim area near the railway in western Iraq.

The U.S. strikes resulted in civilian and military casualties, as well as significant damage to public and private property, raising concerns about the broader implications of such military interventions on regional stability and international relations.
