There is growing anger that long-term British residents have fallen victim to rule changes in 2012 aimed at stopping overstaying. In 2013, her ministry displayed billboards on vans telling illegal immigrants to "Go Home or Face Arrest".

No country has yet claimed the attack after midnight but USA officials recently said that Washington wasn't planning another strike after the missile strike on Saturday.

Defense Secretary Mattis said at the time that no follow-up attacks were planned and that the Pentagon was careful to ensure the safety of Russian troops and Syrian civilians in the area. Reports close to the regime indicated that its defences shot down six missiles targeting the base. According to various Arabic media channels, three missiles targeted Al Dumayr airport, but they were all allegedly downed by the Syrian air defenses.
