Kuwait, Rajab 10, 1438, Apr 7, 2017, SPA -- The State of Kuwait on Friday expressed support for the US air strikes that targeted Syrian military bases from where the chemical attack on Khan Sheikhoun was launched.

In a statement issued today, a Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry official source said: "The State of Kuwait, while affirming its emphatic rejection and robust condemnation of using various weapons of mass destruction including chemical arms, expresses its support for the military operations carried out by the United States of America targeting bases from where the chemical attack on the innocent in Khan Sheikhoun, Idlib, was launched claiming hundreds of victims and injuries particularly among women and children. The official source indicated that the US operation was carried out as a result of inaction on part of the international community to put an end to the tragedy of the brotherly Syrian people.

He affirmed all Syrian parties must be coerced to respond to international efforts for reaching the aspired political solution for restoring security and stability to Syria and halt spilling blood of the brotherly Syrian people.
