The Geopolitical Implications of the US-led Attack on the Syrian Government

REPORT • Apr 2018

On 14 April 2018, the United States military, with French and British support, targeted a series of Syrian government military facilities. The attack was ostensibly in response to a chemical weapons attack on Douma, which the international community, barring Russia and other Syrian allies, have attributed to the government of Bashir al-Assad. The use of chemical weapons in Douma reportedly left at least 40 people dead and more than 500 injured. Douma is controlled by a series of different rebel groups. Civilians in the area have reported the use of chlorine gas and other chemical weapons since at least January 2018. Russia called the chemical attack in the area a false flag operation conducted by the White Helmets activists, while the Syrian government has argued that it was the work of UK intelligence services.
