UK PM May: British forces conduct targeted strike against Syria

Share

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.

Israel says US-led strikes have enforced Syria red line
There is no doubt in the worldwide community's conscience on this matter. "Base Incirlik was not involved in the strike". Turkish President Recep Erdogan has warned against further escalation in Syria in a phone talk with UK PM Theresa May.

"This is the first time as prime minister that I have had to take the decision to commit our armed forces in combat - and it is not a decision I have taken lightly", she said.

He reiterated that Canada condemns the use of chemical weapons in Ghouta.

"I think it is right that the global community has come together and said we will not accept this", she added.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has expressed her support for US, French and British airstrikes, claiming they were "necessary and appropriate" to deter the use of chemical weapons in future.

"We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", the U.S. president said in a televised address.

According to the Russian military spokesman the situation in Damascus and other cities in Syria is now calm.

Iranian President Rouhani says US-led military strikes in Syria will cause "destruction" in the Middle East.

Former Labour foreign secretary David Miliband, now head of humanitarian relief group the International Rescue Committee, said military action needed to be part of a wider political strategy.

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.

A YouGov poll for The Times newspaper this week indicated that only a fifth of voters believed that Britain should launch attacks on Syrian military targets and more than two-fifths opposed action. Let the message go out loud & clear: "the use of chemical weapons is never acceptable".

Nojulumba, who has served in the metro police for just over a year, described the incident as a bad experience. Jordan would never see his son grow up, never say goodbye to his mother, Marion, before she died in 2009.
