Britain was behind Syrian 'chemical attack', Russian Federation claims

In a statement released in the early hours of this morning she said: "This evening I have authorised British armed forces to conduct co-ordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use".

The prime minister "should have sought parliamentary approval, not trailed after Donald Trump", he said.

The British government has signaled it is ready to back United States military action against Syria, saying it is "highly likely" the Assad regime used chemical weapons on its own people and that such action could not go unchallenged.

May met with her senior ministers to discuss the alleged chemical attack that killed 43 people and reportedly poisoned more than 500 people in Douma on Saturday.

'Cabinet agreed on the need to take action to alleviate humanitarian distress and to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime, ' Downing Street said in a statement.

The Prime Minister said she will go before the Commons on Monday to answer questions about her decision but insisted there was no "alternative path".

"We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", the president added. "Let these united actions send a clear message to the regime - the use of chemical weapons is categorically unacceptable and you will be held to account".

He said: "The objective of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons".

Mr Corbyn, who has warned of an escalation in a "proxy war" between the USA and Russian Federation, said he would only consider backing intervention in Syria with the support of the United Nations.

Brexit Secretary David Davis, who voted against military action in 2013, said "we've got to make this judgment on a very careful, very deliberate, very well thought-through basis, knowing exactly. how strong the evidence is".

She added: "We agreed that is was both right and legal to take military action together with our closest allies".

Britain was behind Syrian 'chemical attack', Russian Federation claims

Britain's defense ministry said initial indications were that the precision weapons and meticulous target planning had "resulted in a successful attack".

Or it was the precursor to wider military action.

She said nearly a century of global acceptance about not using chemical weapons had been eroded in Douma and Salisbury.

Mrs May said chemical weapons had "all too often" been used in recent times.

"This collective action sends a clear message that the global community will not stand by and tolerate the use of chemical weapons", May said at a press conference, calling the military action "right and legal".

Senior government ministers were summoned back from a spring break to discuss the attack last week in Douma, which has sparked a tense confrontation between Western nations and Syria and its allies, led by Russian Federation.

"Most worrying, is that she has acted at the behest of presidential tweets and sidelined parliament", he said.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a fervent anti-war campaigner, had said Britain should press for an independent UN-led investigation into the suspected chemical attack in Douma rather than wait for instructions from Mr Trump on how to proceed.

As the Conservative leader explained her rationale for the air strikes, opposition parties claimed the attacks were legally dubious, risked escalating conflict and should have been approved by lawmakers.

But they backed action in Iraq the following year, and again in Syria in 2015, strictly limiting strikes to targets of the Islamic State group.
