Britain, France say they joined strikes on Syria

Britain, France say they joined strikes on Syria

The leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn said on Saturday there was no legal basis for British strikes against Syria and such action would encourage others to behave in the same way.

Military bases near the capital, Damascus and the city of Homs, were targeted.

"There is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime", she said.

The "highly successful" mission, came after a barrel bomb was reportedly dropped from a helicopter in last week's Douma chemical attack.

Theresa May will address Parliament on Monday.

She explained a storage facility, military bunker and a chemical weapons research facility were among the targets of a join operation with the United States and France's military.

Over 100 missiles were fired on the morning of Saturday, April 14, targeting what representatives of coalition forces called chemical weapons sites in retaliation for an earlier poison gas attack.

"We have seen a regime appearing to think they can use chemical weapons with impunity".

U.S. claims 'proof' of Syria gas attack, readies response
Moscow has called for a thorough investigation into the alleged attack to be conducted before conclusions are drawn. The US " specifically identified " targets to " mitigate the risk of Russian forces being involved ", Dunford said.

I have done so because I judge this action to be in Britain's national interest.

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

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.

U.S. President Donald Trump said he was prepared to sustain the response until the government of Assad stopped its use of chemical weapons.

Alexander Yakovenko, the Russian ambassador to London, said the White Helmets, a British-funded civil defense force, were responsible for staging fake chemical attacks.

President Trump said the three allies had "marshaled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality".

Meanwhile, Britain's main opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn described the USA -led military strikes on Syria jointly staged by three leading Western countries as a "legally questionable action", saying that the British government should "not taking instructions from Washington". The barbaric and intolerable use of chemical weapons should never go unchecked.

Igor Konashenkov, a Russian defense ministry spokesman, said: "We have ... evidence that proves Britain was directly involved in organizing this provocation". Let the message go out loud & clear: "the use of chemical weapons is never acceptable".
