United Kingdom joins Syria air strikes in response to chemical attack

United Kingdom joins Syria air strikes in response to chemical attack

"This action risks not just further escalating the civil war in Syria but also a risky escalation of global tensions", said the leader of the left-wing Scottish National Party, the third-biggest force in the British parliament.

"It is in our national interest to prevent the further use of chemical weapons in Syria - and to uphold and defend the global consensus that these weapons should not be used".

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.

"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". China's foreign ministry responding to the mission launched to deter chemical weapons in Syria called for a fair objective investigation into the suspected chemical weapon attacks and said it believes only a political settlement is the way to resolve the Syrian issue, Reuters reported.

"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.

She added: "I think that Parliament should have been recalled before the strike". This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very bad regime.

He also did not rule out future military action.

Former Prime Minister David Cameron lost a parliamentary vote on air strikes against Assad's forces in 2013 when 30 Conservative lawmakers voted against action, with many Britons wary of entering another conflict after intervention in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya failed to bring stability to the region.

Four British fighter jets struck a military base near Homs where Britain said Syrian government forces were holding chemical weapon components.

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".

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

"And we can not wait to alleviate further humanitarian suffering caused by chemical weapons attacks".
