The joint US-French-British strikes against the Assad regime in Syria have mainly targeted three chemical sites, US Deputy Secretary of State John J.
Sullivan told Iraqi FM Ibrahim al-Jaafari in a phone call Sunday.
A statement from the Iraqi Foreign Ministry revealed the phone call also tackled the details of the US-led operation.
The strikes came in response to the chemical attack on Douma, eastern Ghouta, killing more than 70, mostly women and children, and wounding more than 1000 others.
The Iran-allied government in Iraq strongly opposed the strikes, triggering escalating local and international condemnation of their support of Dictator Bashar Al-Assad.
During the phone call, Sullivan asserted US keenness to prevent civilian casualties.
Jaafari voiced Iraq’s rejection of the “production or use of chemical weapons by any party,” according to the statement.
