United Kingdom jets fire at Syrian base in 'limited and targeted' strike

UK helped fake Syria gas attack: Russia

France has concluded after analyzing "reliable intelligence" and open sources that a chemical attack on Douma on April 7 was carried out by Syrian government forces, a declassified intelligence report showed on Saturday.

"The consequences of any country taking unilateral and action that has no legal basis are that it's an encouragement for others to do exactly the same and reduces our ability to complain when others do that", he said.

Despite her careful language, there was immediate criticism from opposition lawmakers who said May should have consulted parliament before joining US-led action in Syria.

She said: "This collective action sends a clear message that the global community will not stand by and tolerate the use of chemical weapons".

Her office said that May had talked with US President Donald Trump by telephone on Thursday evening to discuss Syria. British PM Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron declared support to the United States and said they had joined in attacking Syria for its chemical attacks on innocent citizens.

"The sole aim of our attack is to establish a powerful impediment against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons".

Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, however, backed May's decision. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford said the targets included a Syrian research facility and a chemical weapons storage facility.

"This is not about intervening in a civil war".

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon also said the strikes risked "dangerous escalation".
