(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The US strongly condemned the Syrian regime's missile strike Monday on the Aleppo Provincial Council's headquarters, which killed one person and injured eight others.

"The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms the Assad regime's missile strike today on the Aleppo Provincial Council's headquarters," State Department Spokesperson Jennifer Psaki said.

She affirmed that the Aleppo Provincial Council "is a key civilian governance institution that works with more than 100 local councils in Aleppo to meet the basic needs of its people." She stressed "despite inadequate resources and in the face of the regime's relentless attacks, local councils in Aleppo and throughout opposition-held areas in Syria provide education, water, electricity, civil defense and relief to its residents. Teams of emergency responders, supported by the provincial council, regularly respond to the regime's indiscriminate shelling.

"As the regime continues to protect only its interests, slaughter its citizens and suppress the aspiration of its people, we applaud models of local governance like the Aleppo provincial council, which is working tirelessly to support the Syrian people," she remarked.

"These attacks will not deter those who are working for a better future in Syria," she concluded.
