The Workers’ Party have condemned air strikes carried out by United States, French and British forces on Syria Friday night, saying they will only strengthen the hand of jihadi extremists who control territory inside Syria’s borders.

Speaking on the matter, Workers’ Party representative Gavin Mendel-Gleason said:
“Friday night’s attacks will doubtless have been welcomed with glee by the ‘Army of Islam’ jihadists who the Syrian army had only weeks previously successfully eliminated from Ghouta province outside Damascus.

Yesterday, Saturday, April 14, the United States together with the United Kingdom and France, launched strikes on a number of targets in Syria in response to the alleged chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma which they blamed on the Syrian government. Damascus has rejected all the allegations, noting that all of its chemical stockpiles have been destroyed, for which confirmation has been provided by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine strongly condemned the U.S.- British-French imperialist aggression which targeted Syria with its barbaric missiles on the night of April 13.

This aggression once again exposes the true face of the imperialist states, which claim to praise international law and value human rights. Their aggression comes against a sovereign state with international representation in the United Nations and in violation of international norms and standards. This aggression was premeditated and a deliberate attack that is only dubiously connected to an investigation into the alleged use of chemical weapons to be carried out by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The Communist Party of Britain unreservedly condemns the latest act of aggression in Syria by Britain, the USA and France today (April 14). International law cannot be upheld by breaching the most important articles of the United Nations Charter, which ban unprovoked military attacks by one member state upon another.

As the post-World War Two Nuremberg Tribunal ruled: 'To initiate a war of aggression is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole'.

RISE UP!

THE IMPERIALISTS ARE MAKING THE PEOPLES BLEED

GREECE: NO PARTICIPATION IN THE CRIME – CLOSE DOWN THE BASES DISENTANGLEMENT FROM NATO AND EU

With today’s attack in Syria, the USA, Britain and France, with the support and tolerance of the rest of the NATO and EU member-states, are making the peoples of the region once again to bleed, they destroy and dismember states, utilizing fabricated proof and pretexts. Their real objective is to control the wealth-producing resources, the energy routes, the spheres of influence. This objective puts them in confrontation with other powerful capitalist states and regional powers, with governments that are not of their liking, because the serve competitive plans.
