 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly condemned the chemical attack in Syria: “When I saw the pictures of babies suffocating from a chemical attack in Syria, I was shocked and outraged. There is no excuse whatsoever for the deliberate attack upon civilians and children especially with cruel and outlawed chemical weapons.”

“I call upon the international community to fulfill its obligations from 2013 to finally fully remove these chemical weapons from Syria,” Netanyahu declared. “This cruel war stresses the great imperative to always defend ourselves by ourselves in the face of every enemy and every threat.”
