President Macron announced the use of chemical weapons in Syria was a "red line" for France, and "would result in reprisal and an immediate response". 

On March 22nd 2018, The US Department of State designated Frenchman Joe Asperman as a "Specially Designated Global Terrorist", for being "a senior chemical weapons expert for ISIS", who "oversaw chemical production within Syria for ISIS and the deployment of these chemical weapons at the battlefront." 

In October 2017, French Police were informed of 420 fraudulent transactions, between France and Syria, where 190 known French citizens, were found to have sent up to €500,000 in unemployment and family funded state benefits, to known French Jihadists in Syria. 

Affiliation and funding the Islamic State was made "illegal" across the European Union in 2014, after the IS invasion of Mosul. French investigators found that 210 people had collected money from the fraudulent welfare claims, sent to Syria from France. 

In December 2015, the UN Security Council passed a resolution on funding ISIS and Al-Qaeda, which reiterated States’ obligations, to ensure their nationals and persons in their territory did not make available economic resources to those actors.
