Hyderabad, Apr 15 (PTI) The Communist Party of India (CPI) today condemned the joint attack by the US and its allies targeting chemical weapons facilities in Syria.

“The party condemns the aggression of US and UK towards Syria under the pretext of destroying chemical arsenal. The war waged by US President Donald Trump will lead to disastrous consequences,” CPI general secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy said in a press release here.

The air-strike by the US, the UK and France came in response to a suspected chemical attack on Douma in Syria last week which killed dozens, including children.

“Fresh tension is mounting with the attack on Syria,” Reddy added.
