Turkey was informed of the forthcoming strikes fired by the US and its allies against Syrian regime targets on early Saturday, the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) Spokesperson Mahir Ünal said. Erdogan said that "the innocent Syrian people should have been defended long ago".
The first target was a scientific research center outside of Damascus and the second was a chemical weapons storage facility outside of Homs, he said.
Turkish Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin on Saturday called on the worldwide community to unite to avoid chemical attacks in future, while emphasizing the importance of seeking a political solution to the Syrian crisis.
Speaking at the sixth regular congress held by the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in Istanbul, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım also expressed views, saying "it is a positive step", referring to the joint strikes on Syria.
On April 7, the White Helmets, a civil defense agency, accused the Assad regime of an alleged chemical attack, which it said killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others. "We urge the worldwide community to unite and prevent future chemical attacks".
