FRANCE SENDS AID TO SYRIA

France is sending half a ton of medicine and equipment to Syria after a suspected chemical attack earlier this week killed more than 80 people.

The French Foreign Ministry said Thursday that it is sending medicine to treat the victims and equipment to protect first responders in future attacks via Turkey to be distributed by the aid group UOSSM.

France condemned Tuesday's attack on the town of Khan Sheikhoun, which it blamed on President Bashar Assad's government. The Trump administration and other Western officials have also blamed government forces, allegations denied by Damascus.
