Italy: ‘Italy won’t target Syria’ – PM Gentiloni on US-led airstrikes on Syria

“Our traditional support [of the US] does not in any way mean that we would start operations from Italian bases directly targeting Syria,” Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni said in an address from Palazzo Chigi in Rome on Saturday.

Gentiloni’s remarks came after the USA, UK and France launched airstrikes against multiple Syrian government targets early on Saturday morning, targeting alleged chemical weapons sites as well as a Syrian military base in Homs.

The airstrikes are a response to a claim of an alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma last week. Syria and Russia have both denied the allegations, calling them ‘staged’ and a ‘fabrication.’
