Operation launched by US, Britain and France against Syrian regime is appropriate reaction: Turkish Foreign Ministry

"We welcome this operation which has eased humanity's conscience in the face of the attack in Douma, largely suspected to have been carried out by the regime", Turkey's statement said.

The use of mass destruction weapons, including chemical weapons, is a crime against humanity, the statement said.

The strikes came after the Assad regime was accused of carrying out a chemical attack in Syria's Douma, which killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.
