JEREMY CORBYN today refused to blame Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad for the chemical attack on Syrian citizens.
And the leftie Labour boss has a long history of standing up for the regime – while opposing the West’s attempts to hit back against him.
Jeremy Corbyn has refused to condemn Bashar al-Assad
Mr Corbyn is also allied with a string of far-left aides who have sided with Assad.
The party leader was today asked if he believes Assad is responsible for the chemical attack which killed dozens of people, including children, in the rebel-held area of Douma on Saturday night.
He replied: “I condemn it absolutely, I condemn the use of chemical or biological weapons in any scenario anywhere in the world.”
Without mentioning Assad, Mr Corbyn added: “The tragedy and the terror of people’s lives in Syria can only end by a political solution.
