Poll: 60% of Germans Criticize US Military Action in Syria

10 April 2017 15:10

 

According to a poll commissioned by Bild am Sonntag newspaper, almost 60 percent of the people in Germany say the US strike on a Syrian airbase earlier in the week was the wrong thing to do.

The survey revealed that 26 percent approved, and 59 percent disapproved of the attack on the military site in Homs province in Syria.

The majority of the respondents, 80 percent, also think that no more strikes should be made on Syrian territory, while only nine percent would welcome further US attacks on the country.

The Bild am Sonntag survey also found that 40 percent of Germans fear that the strike can provoke military conflict between Russia and the US, while 53 percent do not believe it is a possible outcome.

The United States carried out a missile strike on the Shayrat airfield late Thursday in response to an alleged chemical attack on a militant-held town in Idlib province the blame for which Washington has immediately pinned on the Bashar al-Assad government.

According to reports, around 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched on Thursday night at Shayrat military airfield in Southeast of Homs city. US military ships in the Mediterranean launched the strike on Syrian airbase, killed and wounded several civilians.

The US strike has been condemned by Tehran and Moscow, two main allies of Damascus in fight against terrorism, while the Syrian Armed Forces’ General Command has also deplored US missile attack on Shayrat military airport, adding the move made clearer that the US is a partner of ISIL and Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) terrorists in the war-hit country.
