A number of countries, including the UK, Turkey and Israel, have expressed their full support to the US military strike on an airfield in the Syrian province of Homs.

On Friday, a spokesman for the UK government said that his country fully backs the US action and believes that the strike had become “an appropriate response to the barbaric chemical weapons attack launched by the Syrian regime.”

“The UK Government fully supports the US action, which we believe was an appropriate response to the barbaric chemical weapons attack launched by the Syrian regime, and is intended to deter further attacks,” the spokesman said.

Meanwhile, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin called the US missile strike “a fitting response to such unthinkable brutality” and “an example to the entire free world.” The statement was made on Twitter.

“The clear action by US and @POTUS are a fitting response to such unthinkable brutality, & an example to the entire free world,” Rivlin wrote.

Earlier on Friday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also expressed his support to the US strike and said that his whole country holds the same opinion.

As the CNN Turk TV-channel reported, according to Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus, the US missile strike on the military airfield in Syria was a good and “positive” thing.

“Assad regime should be punished,” the Hurriyet newspaper quoted Kurtulmus’ words.

Meanwhile, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault noted that the US strike in Syria was a “warning” to and “condemnation” of the Bashar al-Assad’s “criminal regime.”

“It is a signal that has been given…it is a warning,” Ayrault said.

On the night of Friday, two warships of the US Navy launched dozens of cruise missiles from the eastern Mediterranean Sea at the airbase, controlled by the Syrian government forces, in response to the alleged poison gas attack in Idlib province. According to the Pentagon, in total, 59 missiles were fired. The US missiles targeted the Shayrat airbase, from which, according to the US government, the chemical attacks were carried out in Idlib.

At the same time, the Syrian government stated that its forces have never used and do not intend to use chemical weapons against civilians and terrorists. The country’s stocks of chemical weapons were successfully exported from Syria, and, in 2016, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) announced the complete elimination of the Syria’s chemical weapons.

    Disgusting leaders, traitors to the free world and mockery of ‘freedom’ and ‘human rights’.

    The US bombard and kill 1000s of civilians monthly all over syria and iraq. They have done it in mosul, raqqa, idlib, deir ez zor, homs, and the worst one was the manbijj massacre last year.

    They use phosphorus shells themselves but the MSM wont talk about that.

    Why point your fingers at the russians and their airstrikes collateral damage when you do the same …. except 10x worse??? HYPOCRITES. American hypocrisy at its best.

    Theresa May is 10x worse than that freak pig fornicator Cameron. WHy dont they act and talk their partner saudis out of bombing and killing TONS of yemeni kids with chmical and cluster bombs huh? Oh …. OIL INTERESTS. They wanna pick on assad for a supposed chemical attack LOL hilarious.

    The israelis opening their mouths after the way they treat palestinians …. oh classic LOL …. hypocritical devilish satanic pieces of utter human trash. Parasites to the real freedom and a free world, the zionists.

    Turkeys ErDOGan playing a dangerous double game with US and russia, trying to save face and look good to both …. putin’s patience has a limit and an end, you wannabe sultan.

    It took them 3 months to get to trump and completely turn him neocon bat shit crazy.

    These people make me sick. BRB vomiting.

    “said that his whole country holds the same opinion.”

    No, fuck off.

  • Dod Grile

    There you have it, “99 out of 100 corrupt sock puppets agree, Murder Inc bombing Syria, is Good.”

  • Peter Moy

    What did anyone with a brain and common sense expect? Turkey and Britain are just lapdog puppets of the USA and Israel is the gangster boss pimp in command. Just remember who Trump’s closest advisers are: Jared and Ivanka Kushner. Only a moron with the IQ of a cockroach would deny the fact that the Zionists decide US foreign policy in the Middle East.

  • Terence Silvestre Jr.

    The way of acting of Turkish President Erdogan seems like a promiscuous woman without shame, dignity or self-esteem running after the best bidder when it suits her best, even when they after spit and despise her like human being.
