United Kingdom jets fire at Syrian base in 'limited and targeted strike'

Theresa May

Answering a question on the legality of Britain's action early Saturday, May said she believed that "it was the right thing for us to do".

The airstrikes on Syria were carried out in a joint operation between the UK, US and France.

"In addition we expect our regional allies and partners to take greater responsibility both militarily and financially for securing the region".

"Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace".

The government says MPs will have "abundant time" to have their say about the air strikes, but opposition MPs argue they should have been consulted before the action and not left to discuss the merits of the case afterwards.

Often when the British government decides on military action, the opposition offers its full support.

World Cup concern for crocked Batshuayi
For now, Batshuayi will likely be heading back to Chelsea's training facility in Cobham starting the rehabilitation process. Having seen game time limited at Chelsea, a January switch to Dortmund had delivered nine goals in just 15 appearances.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the Assad regime's use of chemical weapons could not be tolerated but questioned whether the strikes would halt their use or contribute to ending the civil war.

The document said it was highly likely the regime would seek to use chemical weapons again despite the global law prohibition on the use of chemical weapons.

Overnight, US, British and French forces launched more than 100 missiles from ships and manned aircraft, targeting three of Syria's main chemical weapons facilities.

Speaking to the press from Downing Street on Saturday morning, she described the joint action with the USA and France as "limited, targeted and effective" and insisted the aim was not to bring about regime change.

The action was highly targeted, necessary and proportionate to alleviate humanitarian distress and therefore legally justifiable it added.

Mr Johnson said Mrs May will be making a statement in the House of Commons on Monday and it will give parliamentarians a chance to hold the executive to account.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leaks, could be codenamed 'Crown'

He said chlorine has been used by "a number of parties in the conflict" in Syria as a weapon. "These are not the actions of a man; they are crimes of a monster instead", he said.

Trump said he has ordered "precision strikes" against Syria, where dozens of people were killed last weekend in a suspected toxic gas attack on Douma, the largest town in a former rebel stronghold outside Damascus.

Russian agencies quoted the lawmakers as saying that Assad was in a "good mood", had praised the Soviet-era air defence systems Syria used to repel the Western attacks and had accepted an invitation to visit Russia at an unspecified time. "Indeed, we have been calling for parliament to be recalled since last Wednesday", Blackford said in a statement.

There is no definitive evidence that even props up the claim that a chemical weapons attack even took place.

Moscow's ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.

"Today, the nations of Britain, France, and the United States of America have marshalled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality", Trump said.
