Turkish presidential aide urges unity post Syria strike

The US, Britain and France hit Syrian military facilities with a wave of joint airstrikes early Saturday in response to an alleged chemical attack blamed on the Syrian military, sparking an outcry from Syria, Russia and Iran.

Erdogan also had an "exchange of views" over the US-led strikes, in a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin late on Saturday, the Turkish presidential source said.

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said the strikes had not been launched via Turkey's southern Incirlik air base.
