Syria says that US fighter aircraft entered their territorial airspace and launched an attack that killed 8 unarmed civilians on a farm in the bordertown of Abu Kamal.
Syria's Foreign Minister, Walid Muallem, accuses the US of "criminal and terrorist aggression". Muallem says, according to a BBC report, that the US raid killed 3 children.
An Al Jazeera English report says that 4 out of the 8 dead are children.
The US refuses to say whether they carried out the raid or not. There is, however, some unspecified and unnamed US source that has indicated a "successful" mission in Abu Kamal.
Syria has warned the US that it will defend itself if the US launches anymore attacks.
There is very little doubt anywhere that the murderous thugs who run the US and their wars are responsible for this attack on innocent civilians.
I am beyond dismay and rage.
