After Syria strikes, Britain's May to face critical parliament

DUP MP Nigel Doods, reacting to the air strikes, said: "First and foremost we salute the courage of our courageous servicemen and women".

Britain's defence ministry said in a statement that four British Tornado jets had fired Storm Shadow missiles at the Syrian base 15 miles (24 kilometres) west of Homs at 0100 GMT.

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".

He also did not rule out further attacks against Syria if the Assad regime continued the alleged use of chemical weapons.

May has repeatedly said that the missile strike on Syria was not about "regime change".

The joint attack by the United States, Britain, and France, which began at 3:55 a.m. local time (0055 GMT), launched some 110 missiles targeting Syrian military sites in the Syrian capital Damascus and elsewhere, Syria's state news agency SANA said, citing the military.

May said the strikes would "send a clear signal to anyone else who believes they can use chemical weapons with impunity".

"There is no proof that the Assad regime is responsible for the chemical attack on civilians", Batten said, referring to the Syrian government headed by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Britain has accused Russia of being behind last month's nerve agent attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, southern England, a charge Moscow has rejected.

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

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement that Canada stands with its allies and that it supports the decision " to take action to degrade the Assad regime's ability to launch chemical weapons attacks against its own people".

He also did not rule out future military action.

May held an emergency cabinet meeting to discuss possible action on Thursday and there had been calls for the British parliament to be consulted before any air strikes. "The opposition does not operate helicopters or use barrel bombs".

The strikes were in retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma, near Damascus.
