Britain, France say they joined strikes on Syria

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

Corbyn, a veteran anti-war campaigner, said he had written to May to ask her to publish in full the legal advice she had received prior to taking action.

May said the missile strike was created to minimize any civilian casualties and was not an attempt to change the Syrian government.

"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.

May added Britain and its allies had sought to use every diplomatic means to stop the use of chemical weapons, but had been repeatedly thwarted, citing a Russian veto of an independent investigation into the Douma attack at the U.N. Security Council this week.

President Vladimir Putin has said Russian Federation will call an emergency session of the UN Security Council over air strikes on Syria.

In her comments, May also alluded to a nerve agent attack in Britain last month on a former Russian spy and his daughter.

In a statement Mrs May said that the Syrian regime had demonstrated a "persistent pattern of behaviour" when it came to the use of chemical weapons, that "must be stopped".

Over 100 missiles were fired on the morning of Saturday, April 14, targeting what representatives of coalition forces called chemical weapons sites in retaliation for an earlier poison gas attack.

"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.

And while this action is specifically about deterring the Syrian Regime, it will also send a clear signal to anyone else who believes they can use chemical weapons with impunity.

"I think it is right that the global community has come together and said we will not accept this", she added.

Trump said strikes on Syria are under way.

This persistent pattern of behavior must be stopped - not just to protect innocent people in Syria from the horrific deaths and casualties caused by chemical weapons but also because we can not allow the erosion of the worldwide norm that prevents the use of these weapons.

"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.

"It was both right and legal to take military action together with our closest allies to alleviate further humanitarian suffering by degrading the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability", May said.
