- Agencies, PARIS

Feb 15, 2018-

France will launch attacks if proof emerges that the Syrian regime has used banned chemical weapons against its civilians, President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday. “We will strike the place where these launches are made or where they are organised,” Macron told the presidential press corps. “But today our services have not established proof that proscribed chemical weapons have been used against civilian populations,” he added. “As soon as such proof is established, I will do what I said,” Macron warned, while adding that “the priority is the fight against the terrorists, the jihadists”.
