BEIRUT - Syria condemned on Thursday sanctions imposed by Washington on Syrian President Bashar Assad and other officials in response to a crackdown on pro-democracy protests.

An official source on Syrian state television said the sanctions were targeting the Syrian people and served Israeli interests. "The sanctions have not and will not affect Syria's independent will," the source was quoted as saying.
