Britain, France say they joined strikes on Syria

UK Prime Minister Theresa May's Statement on Syria Strikes

And a significant body of information including intelligence indicates the Syrian Regime is responsible for this latest attack.

"This is not about intervening in a civil war".

"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 Prime Minister explained: "I have taken this decision because I believe it is the right thing to do".

"While the full assessment of the strike is ongoing, we are confident of its success", she added. Western governments, including Britain, blamed the government of Bashar al-Assad, a Russian ally, for the attack.

"It is not about regime change", May said in a statement. Syria and its main ally Russian Federation deny a chemical attack took place.

"This collective action sends a clear message that the global community will not stand by and tolerate the use of chemical weapons".

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

"Very careful scientific analysis was applied to determine where best to target the Storm Shadows to maximise the destruction of the stockpiled chemicals and to minimise any risks of contamination to the surrounding area", the ministry said.

Prime Minister Theresa May during a press conference in 10 Downing Street, London on the air strikes against Syria.

Williamson told BBC radio that all British crews returned safely and early indications were that the strikes had been "highly successful".

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

"The Syrian regime has continued to use chemical weapons and will continue to do so".

She said that at an emergency cabinet meeting in London on Thursday "we agreed that it was both right and legal to take military action" after hearing legal advice.

Meanwhile, Britain's main opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn described the US -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".

Igor Konashenkov, a Russian defense ministry spokesman, said: "We have ... evidence that proves Britain was directly involved in organizing this provocation".

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.
