Edward Corrigan, a political activist and journalist, says US airstrikes in Syria are "war crimes" and "illegal activities" under both international law and the United States' domestic law, adding that they are violating the sovereignty of the Arab country.

“These attacks are illegal. The attacks are done by the Americans without the sanction of the Syrian government, there is no sanction through the UN Security Council for use of violence and in fact this is contrary to American law. There is no United States’ congressional approval for these attacks, which are in fact an act of war against a sovereign country,” Corrigan told Press TV in an interview on Sunday.
