BEIRUT - The Syrian National Coalition opposition group welcomed the US strikes that hit a Syrian army airbase and said it hoped they continue to stop Syrian government air strikes and "use of internationally banned weapons," an SNC media official said on Friday.

US President Donald Trump said he ordered missile strikes against a Syrian airfield from which a deadly chemical attack was launched this week, declaring he acted in America's "national security interest" against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
