Amnesty International has mildly criticized a recent US strike on a Syrian airbase, stressing that it ‘doesn’t address problem’ in the country.

“It’s one thing to have some air strikes by the US on a one-off basis, but it’s not going to address this problem,” said Amnesty’s Secretary General Salil Shetty on Tuesday.
US warships deployed to the eastern Mediterranean launched a barrage of 59 Tomahawk missiles against Shayrat Airfield, southeast of the western Syrian city of Homs, on Friday. Washington, without providing any evidence, alleged that the attack came in response to a chemical attack by the Syrian government in Khan Shaykhun.
