The French president warned, Tuesday, February 13, that in case of authentic evidence on the chemical nature of the recent attacks on Eastern Ghouta, France would hit Syria.
French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday (February 13th) that if France has evidence that prohibited weapons were used against civilians by the Syrian regime, it will strike the place from where these shipments were made.
“Today, we have no proven way by our services that chemical weapons proscribed by the treaties have been used against civilian populations”, said Macron.
The French Minister of the Armed Forces, Florence Parly, said last Friday that in the absence of “certainties” on the use of chemical weapons in Syria, the French President’s red line for a possible response to the Syrian government was still not outdated.
In response to the French authorities’ allegations, Damascus claims that the Western media’s account of the new chemical attack in Syria is just another pretext for weakening Syria, particularly after the Syrian Army’s unprecedented breakthroughs in the war against Syria. terrorism.
Following the Russia / United States agreement, Syria dismantled its nuclear arsenals under the auspices of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
On the other hand, Damascus has repeatedly warned against the use of chemical weapons by opponents and terrorists in civilian areas.
