Led airstrikes have limited effect on deterring Syrian gov't

For residents of Syrian capital attack comes as a disorienting predawn barrage of light and sound

Mr Corbyn said MPs should have been consulted before the strike and called on May to "publish in full the legal justification and basis for" the action.

Naval and air forces from the three countries hit three primary targets, including a chemical weapons research facility outside Damascus and a weapons storage facility near Homs, General Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters.

"These limited strikes may serve to deter future chemical weapons use, but assuming they don't trigger escalation or a retaliation, they won't dramatically alter the course of the conflict", Emma Beals, a Beirut-based expert who has been monitoring the war in Syria, said on Twitter.

Haley relayed the message from President Trump at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council hours after a US -led bombardment targeted Syrian chemical weapons facilities.

The Obama administration reached an agreement with Russian Federation and Syrian in 2013 in which Russian Federation was to oversee the elimination of Syria's chemical weapons.

"We can not tolerate the recurring use of chemical weapons, which is an immediate danger for the Syrian people and our collective security". President Vladimir Putin called the strikes an "act of aggression" that was "destructive for the entire system of worldwide relations", according to a statement on the Kremlin's website.

President Trump thanked the United Kingdom and France for their "wisdom and power", saying the strike could not have "had a better result".

The intervention is the biggest by Western powers against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country's seven-yearcivil war and pitted the United States and its allies against Russian Federation.

In May 2003, President George W. Bush stood on an aircraft carrier under a giant "Mission Accomplished" banner and declared that "major combat operations in Iraq have ended" - just six weeks after the invasion.

The US says it overwhelmed and evaded Syrian air defences overnight to strike every target at the heart of Syria's chemical weapons program, in a multi-pronged attack from the air and sea alongside British and French allies.

The departures come under a negotiated withdrawal reached last weekend between the Jaish al-Islam Islamist rebel faction, Syria's regime, and its Russian ally. Trump's language was more brutal: "They are crimes of a monster".

The resolution was rejected at an emergency meeting of the Security Council on Saturday that was convened at Moscow's request, with three votes in favor, eight votes against and four abstentions.
