Qatar, GCC back missile strikes by USA, allies against Syrian chemical weapon facilities

By QLReporter

Qatar has expressed its support for the US, British and French military operations against specific military targets used by the Syrian regime in launching attacks on innocent civilians, reported Gulf Times.

Qatar’s Foreign Ministry, in a statement on Saturday, said the continued use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime against civilians, and its disregard for the humanitarian and legal consequences of such crimes, requires immediate action by the international community.

This was necessary to protect Syrian people and to strip the regime of internationally prohibited weapons, reported The Peninsula.

Holding the Syrian regime completely responsible for the use of chemical weapons against civilians in Douma, the statement called on the UN Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities to stop the crimes of the regime and its use of internationally prohibited weapons, and to bring the perpetrators of those crimes to international justice.

The statement reiterated Qatar’s support for all international efforts aimed at reaching a political solution based on the 2012 Geneva Statement and the relevant Security Council resolutions, meeting the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people.

Meanwhile, a report from Riyadh said the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) states too expressed its support for the joint missile strikes.

In a statement , the Council stressed the need to stop the war crimes committed in Syria, calling on the United Nations to push the political process to end the Syrian crisis.
