Syria strikes ‘for honour of international community’: Macron

Strasbourg (France) (AFP) – France, Britain and the United States carried out air strikes targeting chemical weapons sites in Syria to defend the “honour of the international community”, French President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday.

“Three countries have intervened, and let me be quite frank, quite honest — this is for the honour of the international community,” Macron said in an impassioned defence to the European Parliament.
