Syrian War Will Go On Despite Western Strikes: British FM

British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said that the Syrian war will inevitably continue after unprecedented western strikes, which were limited to targeting the country's alleged chemical weapons facilities.

Britain and France last week joined the US-led missile strikes, which came a week after a deadly attack on the town of Douma where civilians were hit with chlorine and Sarin according to the western powers.

Despite describing the intervention as "successful", Britain's foreign minister said there were currently no plans for further attacks.

British warplanes took part in the strikes, which destroyed sites suspected of hosting chemical weapons development and storage facilities.

The majority of the more than 350,000 victims of the seven-year conflict have been killed by conventional rather than chemical weapons.
