Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said April 7 that Washington informed Ankara before carrying out April 6 missile strikes on Shayrat air base near the city of Homs, Hurriyet reported.

Syrians protest in Damascus against chemical weapons Saturday a day after the USA missle launch on a military base in central Syria. "And we believe that the first priority is the defeat of ISIS", Tillerson said in a clip made public on the eve of the Sunday talkshow's air time.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, supported the U.S. missile strikes against the Shayrat airbase, saying they show that alleged chemical and conventional attacks targeting civilians won't "go unpunished".

The conversation was initiated by the American side, the statement said.

Dozens of representatives of the media, local authorities, fire departments, police, and the Syrian military have visited the airfield since then, with no alleged "storage units" or any chemical shells having been found, he said.
