In the early morning of the 14th, a huge explosion was heard in Damascus, the Syrian capital.
According to CCTV, Ma Xuliang, Counsellor of the Chinese Embassy in Syria, said that the area of my embassy has not been affected.
At present, the staff of the embassy is safe and the building is intact. According to statistics from the embassy, there are 83 Chinese citizens in Syria. The embassy contacted them at the first time. As of now, there are no reports of casualties among Chinese citizens.

"Chicago Tribune": "A Dangerous Error"
The United States "Chicago Tribune" issued a commentary immediately stating that Trump's announcement against Syria was "a dangerous mistake."
The United States "Chicago Tribune" wrote on the 13th that when it comes to foreign affairs, the American public generally has two clear and strong tendencies:
The first is to control things that happen outside the United States, especially those that continue to attract the attention of the public.
Second, reduce the sacrifice as much as possible.
The American media believes that Trump's approach is the same as that of the American people. He has been stumbling between "finding the United States' own path" and "reducing the long-term and high cost of war." Therefore, the ideal situation for taking action should be fast and effective, but the casualties are minimal. Some media believe that this may be one of the reasons why Trump used air precision strikes.
However, the article also reviewed the experiences of the two predecessors of Trump and reached a conclusion: The blow to Syria is not wise.
The article pointed out that Trump has now embarked on a new round of combat activities, showing that he has not learned anything from the experience of his predecessor government. In 2013, when Obama was asked to respond to the "Assad government's use of chemical weapons," he wrote on Twitter: "Away from Syria." Trump took office soon declared that in order to prevent the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons, missiles will be used to stop them.
The article concludes that the U.S. decision to fight Syria is already bad enough, and what is even worse is that it may provoke a "hot war" with its opponent, and the 1400 nuclear warhead possessed by this adversary can directly hit the U.S. territory.
Russian Embassy in the United States: Such actions will not have no consequences
Since then, the Russian Embassy in the United States has sounded: We were threatened. We warn that such actions will not have no consequences. All responsibilities are attributed to Washington, London, and Paris.
The insult to the President of Russia is unacceptable and cannot be recognized. The United States has the largest chemical arsenal and does not have any moral rights to blame other countries.
According to CCTV news, Alexander Sherin, First Deputy Chairman of the Russian Federation’s Duma, issued a statement, stating that the U.S., Britain, and France’s military strike against Syria was a violation of international standards and that Russia’s security was seriously threatened. The behavior of the United States, Britain, and France is a naked violation of the sovereign state. As a nuclear power, Russia will not sit idly by.

These two major varieties will rise. What are the investment opportunities for A shares?
1. Crude oil
According to a related research report from CSC, Syria is only a small country producing crude oil, but it is crucial to the global crude oil market. The market is worried about Trump’s possible interference in Syria’s wider geographical conflict, while supporting Iran’s situation in Iran. The possibility that the United States may withdraw from the Iranian nuclear agreement has also exacerbated the U.S.’s fear of renewing sanctions against Iran.
In addition, after the Iraqi issue is resolved, cracking down on the existing Syrian government will help the Western countries fight for the initiative to remove obstacles in the Middle East; and the Middle East is rich in oil and is in an important strategic position. Under the drive of economic interests, geopolitical conflicts are also escalating. .
There are numerous oil production and transportation facilities in and around Syria, including the Suez Canal and Suez-Mediterranean oil pipelines, and Turkey, located in northern Syria, is the source of several important oil pipelines that export Iraqi and Azerbaijani crude oil. The port of Ceyhan in Turkey is the end of the Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline and the Kirkuk-Ceyhan oil pipeline. These oil production and transportation facilities are likely to be hit at any time in armed conflict, thereby increasing the risk of oil supply disruption in the Middle East. In addition, fighting Syria to some extent will encourage the "Islamic extremists" arrogance, is likely to help these people from fighting in Syria to Iraq, further threatening the future global oil supply.
Some analysts believe that last week, crude oil prices continued to rise, with the best one-week performance in eight months, while oil prices reached new highs in more than three years, all following the situation in Syria, it is possible that the market started trading crude oil. The price may continue to soar.
Zhongtai Securities said that as tensions in the Middle East increase, oil prices do not rule out further rises.
From the perspective of investment, Sino-Thai Securities believes that the oil services sector is expected to gradually invest in fundamental investment from the theme of rising oil prices.
