DOHA, Qatar, Qatar called on the international community, to take immediate action, to protect Syrian civilians, after the U.S.-led air strikes on the Arab country.

Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, in a statement that, immediate action should be taken, to protect the civilians from the alleged uses of chemical weapons.

It also voiced its support for international efforts, to reach a political solution, based on the 2012 Geneva Communique and relevant UN resolutions.

Early on Saturday morning, the United States, Britain and France launched a missile attack on military targets, in Syria’s capital, Damascus, and central province of Homs.

The joint air strikes came, under the pretext of punishing the Syrian government, over its alleged use of poison gas in an attack on the rebel-held town of Douma, near Damascus, on Apr 7.

The Syrian government, however, has repeatedly rejected the alleged chemical attack in Douma, as a fabrication by the rebels and their foreign supporters, to justify military strikes on Syria.

Arab leaders gathered together in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, for the annual Arab summit, to discuss major political issues gripping the Middle East, including Syria, Palestine, Libya and Yemen.
