NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Saturday backed the joint airstrikes carried out by the US, United Kingdom and France in Syria.

"Allies expressed their full support for this action meant to degrade the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability and deter further chemical weapon attacks against the people of Syria", Stoltenberg said. This legally questionable action risks escalating further, as US Defence Secretary James Mattis has admitted, an already devastating conflict and therefore makes real accountability for war crimes and use of chemical weapons less, not more likely'.

"The use of chemical weapons is unacceptable, and those responsible must be held accountable", he added.

Vladimir Putin said the strikes were an "act of aggression" that would have a "destructive" influence on worldwide relations.

The statement, carried by the official Saudi Press Agency, said the strikes were prompted by the "Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons against innocent civilians, including women and children".

President of the European Council Donald Tusk also supported the joint strikes.

On April 7, the volunteer organizations reported that the chemical attack at Douma, the East Ghouta took place.

Members of the MA congressional delegation criticized President Trump for taking military action without congressional approval and called on him to explain the USA strategy in Syria.
