Government Urged To Condemn Air Strikes In Syria

Share this article


The UK, France and the US are pushing for chemical weapons attacks in Syria to be investigated - a day after launching air strikes there.

The allies have circulated a joint draft resolution at the United Nations Security Council.

Iran and Russia criticised the move, while the EU backed the missile strikes.

Here at home, the government is being urged to condemn the air strikes.

People Before Profit TD Richard Boyd Barrett's described them as a very dangerous escalation of the conflict;

"I think our own Government and anybody with any sense would condemn these strikes on Syria as a very dangerous escalation of an already scary and disastrous conflict in Syria.

Bombing and missiles will not solve the horrendous situation that has caused so much damage to the lives of so many Syrian people over the last number of years."
