Syria strikes send 'clear message' on chemical weapons: British PM

British Forces Conduct Targeted Strike Against Syria Says Theresa May

"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.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said Saturday that the United Kingdom is clear that the Assad regime is responsible for Douma chemical attack and confirmed United Kingdom hit a specific and limited set of targets in Syria.

He said there is no doubt the Syrian government is responsible, and it had "crossed a red line".

"There is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime", May said in a televised statement.

She declined to say whether Bashar al-Assad should stay in power and said talks with allies would continue on finding a political solution to the civil war.

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

May said while the strike was targeted at Syria, it sent a message to anyone who used chemical weapons.

Mrs May also felt there was "no graver decision" for a British Prime Minister than to have to deploy British forces as part of military action. "No other group could have carried this attack", May said.

US President Donald Trump addresses the nation on the situation in Syria April 13, 2018 at the White House in Washington, DC.

"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.

Many politicians in Britain, including some in May's own Conservative Party, had called for parliament to be recalled from a break to give authority to any military strike.

"Theresa May should have sought parliamentary approval, not trailed after Donald Trump", Corbyn said.

He also did not rule out future military action.

British Prime Minister Theresa May described the strike as "limited and targeted".

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

A North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting will be held on Saturday during which the UK, France and the USA will brief allies on the action taken in Syria.

"Bombing can not substitute for diplomacy", he said.

The UK has begun air strikes against Syrian chemical weapons sites.

He reiterated that Canada condemns the use of chemical weapons in Ghouta.
