United Kingdom hit a specific and limited set of targets in Syria: May

United Kingdom hit a specific and limited set of targets in Syria: May

May said intelligence and open source accounts indicated that the Syrian government was behind the attack in Douma last Saturday.

Konashenkov said that Russian Federation knew "for sure" that between April 3-6, the White Helmets - a group which helps civilians in opposition-held territory in Syria - were "under severe pressure specifically from London to produce as quickly as possible this pre-planned provocation".

"It is about a limited and targeted strike that does not further escalate tensions in the region and that does everything possible to prevent civilian casualties", she said.

In a press conference on the Syria attack this morning, Mrs May said Britain can not allow the use of chemical weapons to be normalised.

Four RAF Tornados fired Storm Shadow missiles at a former missile base near Homs, following late-night talks between Theresa May, Emmanuel Macron and Donald Trump.

"This is the first time as prime minister that I have had to take the decision to commit our armed forces in combat - and it is not a decision I have taken lightly", she said.

"While the full assessment of the strike is ongoing, we are confident of its success", she added.

U.S., British, and French forces launched air strikes against targets in Syria in the first coordinated Western military action against the Damascus regime.

"I believe that the action taken will have significantly degraded the Syrian regime's ability to use chemical weapons", she said.

The British PM also linked the increasing use of chemical weapons with the nerve agent attack in Salisbury, insisting they were both "part of a pattern of disregard".

The Prime Minister defended her Government's decision to carry out air strikes in Syria, claiming the air strikes were in Britain's national interest. "We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalized - within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom, or anywhere else in our world".

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.

British lawmakers voted down taking military action against Damascus in 2013, in what was widely viewed as an assertion of parliamentary sovereignty on the use of force.

"As we have seen in the past, inaction has its consequences - so PM right to join forces with our allies to take targeted & appropriate action".

"There is a wider question on the future political solution for Syria and that is a matter that we will continue to pursue in diplomatic and political channels with our global partners and allies", May said.
