The policy of U.S. does not care about human lives, Iran's Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said at the meeting with members of country's Assembly of experts, Mehr news agency reported.
Khamenei was speaking about possible military actions from the U.S. on Syria.
"The U.S. makes a mistake with Syria, and both the U.S. and Western states will get hurt if they launch an attack on Syria," Khamenei said.
Some Western countries as well as Turkey have already supported intervention in Syria following another escalation of the situation there.
On August 21, media outlets reported a large scale deployment of chemical weapons near Damascus by Syrian Government Troops. Over 600 people were the victims of the attack.
Clashes between the government forces and armed opposition have been continuing in Syria for over two years.
According to UN statistics, the total number of victims of the conflict in Syria is more than 100,000 people. The Syrian authorities say they are opposed by well-armed militants.
Khamenei went on to note that while the Americans claim the human issues are important for them, it really isn't so.
Khamenei brought up examples of Guantanamo Bay, the Iraqi Abu Ghraib prison, and the chemical weapons used in Iraqi city of Halabja during the Iran-Iraq war.
"Any person in the world knows that the U.S. doesn't seek to solve human issue problems in Syria," Khamenei noted.
