The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) declared it backs the US-led strikes against the military facilities of the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad, Saudi news agency SPA reported Sunday.

GCC Secretary-General Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani pointed out to the necessity to end the suffering of the Syrian people after 7 years of a destructive war, calling on the UN to push the political process to end this crisis.

US, 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 dictator Bashar al-Assad.
