(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Saudi Arabia and Bahrain have expressed support for the recent joint airstrikes by the armed forces of the United States, Britain and France on Syria, which came following suspected chemical weapons attacks on a Syrian town.

“…we fully support military operations against military targets in Syria,” a statement by the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs read on Saturday following the tripartite assaults against Syria.

The kingdom blamed the Syrian government for purportedly conducting a recent chemical attack, holding Damascus accountable for the military attacks.

Syria has repeatedly blamed Riyadh for supporting anti-Damascus militants and destabilizing the Arab country.

Syria has repeatedly blamed Riyadh for supporting anti-Damascus militants and destabilizing the Arab country.

Syria came under attack one week after a suspected chemical weapons assault hit the town of Douma near Damascus.

Western countries blamed the incident on the Syrian government, but Damascus rejected the accusations as “chemical fabrications” made by the terrorists themselves in a bid to halt advances by pro-government forces.

Syria's Foreign Ministry strongly condemned Saturday's strikes as a "brutal, barbaric aggression," saying they would only ignite "tensions in the world and pose threat to the international peace and security as a whole."
