MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow strongly condemns U.S. air strikes in Syria against facilities belonging to what the Pentagon said were Iran-backed militia, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

“We strongly condemn such actions,” the ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said. “We call for the unconditional respect of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria.”
