Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain and President Emmanuel Macron of France issued statements following President Trump’s announcement on Friday evening that the United States had launched airstrikes on Syria. The three governments said they were acting in response to a chemical-weapons attack carried out by President Bashar al-Assad’s government on April 7.
Mr. Macron issued the following statement:
On Saturday, April 7, 2018, in Douma, dozens of men, women and children were massacred by chemical weapons, in total violation of international law and United Nations Security Council resolutions.
The facts and the responsibility of the Syrian regime are not in any doubt.
The red line set by France in May 2017 has been crossed.
I have thus ordered the French forces to intervene tonight, as part of an international operation with the United States of America and the United Kingdom, directed against the hidden chemical arsenal of the Syrian regime.
