German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday that Germany would not participate in any military action in Syria, although she did say she wanted to unite with allies and support a message that chemical weapons use is "not acceptable".

The German government yesterday called for the Syrian regime of President Bashar Al-Assad to be punished following its chemical weapons attack in Douma.

"We deeply regret that the UN Security Council members could not reach an agreement yesterday on a USA -drafted resolution", Merkel said.

On Saturday, as many 78 people were killed and hundreds were injured in a suspected chemical weapons attack on the town of Douma, the last opposition-controlled area in eastern Ghouta near Damascus, medical sources said. The country often has restricted itself to supporting roles, such as the participation of a German refueling plane and Jordan-based reconnaissance jets in the current global campaign against the Islamic State group.
