Saudi Arabia expressed its support for the US-led air strikes on Assad's chemical weapons facilities in Syria.

In official statement released Saturday, the Saudi Foreign Ministry said: "We fully support military operations against military targets in Syria."

The ministry said that the Syrian regime uses internationally banned chemical weapons against innocent civilians, including children and women, in continuation of its heinous crimes committed against the Syrian people for years.

The source of the ministry held the Syrian regime responsible for Syria’s exposure to these military operations, in light of the failure of the international community to take strict measures against the regime.

Bahrain Foreign ministry has expressed its support for the strikes on military targets belonging to the Syrian regime as well.

In a statement the ministry said: “The military operation was necessary to protect civilians and stop chemical use.”
U.S., British and French forces hit Syria with air strikes early on Saturday in response to a suspected poison gas attack that killed dozens of people last week, in the biggest intervention by Western powers against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
