May said she would address parliament on Monday about the strikes. A third target, also near Homs, reportedly contained both a chemical weapons equipment storage facility and a command post.

Russia's Defence Ministry said on Friday that Britain was involved faking a suspected chemical weapons attack in the Syrian town of Douma. "The opposition does not operate helicopters or use barrel bombs".

"While the full assessment of the strike is ongoing, we are confident of its success", she added.

"I want to state categorically ... that Britain has no involvement and would never have any involvement in the use of a chemical weapon", she said, the Guardian reported.

"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.

Alexander Yakovenko, the Russian ambassador to London, said the White Helmets, a British-funded civil defense force, were responsible for staging fake chemical attacks. The barbaric and intolerable use of chemical weapons should never go unchecked.
