    The Greek Foreign Ministry condemned the paint attack and stated that the country's authorities were searching for the perpetrators.

    On April 14, France along with the United States and the United Kingdom carried out a missile attack on a number of targets in Syria, including the facilities in Barzeh and Jamraya, in response to an alleged chemical attack in Duma. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, a total of 103 cruise missiles were launched by the United States and its allies, 71 of which were intercepted by Syria’s air defense systems.
