  • Turkey ‘uncomfortable’ with US-Russia tensions in Syria

The strikes came after the Assad regime was accused of carrying out a chemical attack in Syria's Douma, which killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.

Turkish presidential aide on Saturday urged the worldwide community to unite, saying it would have been "unthinkable to leave Syrian regime unanswered" after its suspected chemical attack in Syria's Douma.

"We welcome this operation that articulates the conscience of humanity to a chemical attack in Douma, which has a strong suspicion of being carried out by the Assad regime", the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Erdogan underlined that Assad regime's attacks with both chemical and conventional weapons should end. "The conscience of the worldwide community carries no doubt to that effect".

Turkey was informed of the forthcoming strikes fired by the USA and its allies against Syrian regime targets on early Saturday, the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) Spokesperson Mahir Ünal said.

The two leaders "reaffirmed their determination to exert joint efforts to reduce tensions on the ground in Syria and to find a political solution to the problem", the source added.
