Turkish president lauds US strike in central Syria

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has praised the incumbent US administration for the US missile attack against a military airfield in Syria’s central province of Homs, stating that President Donald Trump has shown a “more determined” approach than his predecessor Barack Obama.

“It was late coming but something that we welcomed,” Erdogan said at the Atlantic Council Energy Summit in Istanbul on Friday.

On April 7, the Pentagon said 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles had been fired from two warships in the Mediterranean Sea at Shayrat airfield in Homs.

US officials claimed that a suspected chemical incident in the town of Khan Shaykhun in Idlib province on April 4, which reportedly killed over 80 people, had been launched from the military site. Syria has vehemently dismissed the allegations of being behind the attack.
