Syria lashes out at US, calling it a `one-eyed pirate`

Syria lashed out at the United States, describing it as a "one-eyed pirate”, a day after Washington condemned President Bashar al-Assad`s regime over its aerial assault on Aleppo.



Damascus: Syria lashed out at the United States on Tuesday, describing it as a "one-eyed pirate”, a day after Washington condemned President Bashar al-Assad`s regime over its aerial assault on Aleppo.

"The White House is ignoring the crimes committed by the terrorists," state news agency SANA said, using the regime term for anti-Assad rebels.
"Meanwhile, it condemns what it describes as incessant aerial attacks by Syrian government forces in Aleppo."

"Washington is a pirate that only looks with one eye," said the agency, adding that "in the areas named by the White House... All you have is groups of Saudis, Qataris and Chechens."

Damascus has systematically blamed a "foreign conspiracy" for violence in Syria, refusing to recognise the existence of any popular uprising calling for Assad`s removal.
Over the past 10 days, the military has unleashed a massive aerial campaign against rebel areas of Aleppo in the north of the country, killing at least 364 people in attacks deplored as "indiscriminate" by Washington.

SANA also accused US President Barack Obama`s administration of silence over the fighting in Maalula, an ancient Christian town north of Damascus that recently fell into the hands of al Qaeda-affiliated jihadists.
