Dr. Theodore Karasik, analyst on the Middle East and Senior Advisor at Gulf State Analytics answered questions from Axar.az regarding the latest tension in world politics.

The tripartite airstrike on chemical weapon sites in response to Assad's use of chlorine and sarin gas is sending a strong signal to potential future intent.

- The Russian Federation seems to have been stuck in the corner after the last days of the air strikes and recent sanctions. What do you think of it?

This punitive operation is not over. For Russia, deconfliction and rhetoric is a path forward. But the tech matchup between missiles and air-defences is still inconclusive just like the Syrian Civil war to this still inconclusive due to duelling BDA assessments on both sides just like the Syrian Civil War.

- Several days ago Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan held a joint meeting with Hasan Ruhani and Vladimir Putin and praised attack Syria as a "right step". Is there any paradox in Erdogan's statement?

Turkey's position siding with Trump opens a door to Turkey being closer to the West.

The shifting situation on the ground - even with Daesh defeated- can easily lead to a mistake. Of course, the use of chemical agents and toxic materials will bring serious more strikes on Syria. Iran is in the crosshairs of the Israelis...
