Strikes in Syria: The US, UK and France launched coordinated strikes in Syria, hitting targets associated with the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons program. The U.S., Britain and France carried out airstrikes early Saturday against three sites in Syria in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack last week by President Bashar Assad’s regime.

“We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents,” President Trump said in televised remarks from the White House.

Instead, analysts predict the US will become even more involved in the Syrian Civil War, at least temporarily, raising tensions even further with President Bashar al-Assad’s allies, Iran and Russia.

NATO Press Release,    last updated: 14 April 2018,  04:06 :

Statement by the NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg,  on the actions against the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons facilities and capabilities.

I support the actions taken by the United States, the United Kingdom and France against the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons facilities and capabilities. This will reduce the regime’s ability to further attack the people of Syria with chemical weapons.

NATO has consistently condemned Syria’s continued use of chemical weapons as a clear breach of international norms and agreements. The use of chemical weapons is unacceptable, and those responsible must be held accountable.

NATO considers the use of chemical weapons as a threat to international peace and security, and believes that it is essential to protect the Chemical Weapons Convention. This calls for a collective and effective response by the international community.
