United Kingdom opposition leader says no legal basis for attack on Syria

President Trump says military strike in Syria underway

Trump also said that he was proud of his country's "great" military and that following an upcoming spend of billions of dollars, that it would be the finest the USA has ever had.

The U.S. had launched missile strikes against Syria in 2017 in a response to a prior suspected chemical attack.

"Good souls will not be humiliated", Syria's presidency tweeted after the airstrikes began.

"Canada stands with our friends in this necessary response and we condemn in strongest possible terms" the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

- Jeremy Corbyn criticised Mrs May, describing the action as legally questionable.

But she was accused of "riding the coat-tails of an erratic USA president" by the Liberal Democrats, and "taking instructions" from Washington by Labour.

"This was not about interfering in a civil war and it was not about regime change", Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May told a news conference in London.

Number 10 is expected to put out a summary of the advice it received later on Saturday, Downing Street sources said. The U.N. Security Council was meeting at Moscow's request. Some of those more than 40 Syrian missile interceptors, he suggested, might have hit civilian targets.

But France's foreign minister said there was "no doubt" the Assad government was responsible, and he threatened further retaliatory strikes if chemical weapons were used again, as did Pentagon chief Jim Mattis, who said the assault was a "one-time shot", as long as chemical weapons weren't used again.

Syria and its allies condemned the attack and Russian Federation called a meeting of the UN Security Council last night to discuss what it described as a blatant disregard for global law.

Karnataka polls: Internal differences delay Cong's first list of candidates
Going into Assembly polls next month, Karnataka's politics has been dominated by several controversial issues in the recent past. Siddaramaiah would file his nomination papers from the Chamundeshwari constituency on April 20 and from Badami on April 23.

A White House representative said that the strike was a "once off" attack. The Syrian government, as well as its patrons in Russian Federation and Iran, deny that chemical weapons were in Douma by Assad force s- or, indeed, that Assad has any chemical weapons in his possession.

The inspectors said they would go ahead with their investigation despite the strikes.

World leaders from France, UK, Germany, Spain and Australia have all voiced their support for the strikes, all claiming they were a warranted action. "Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace".

But at the same time, he added, the USA will not allow the "ghastly specter" of chemical weapons use to return for the first time since its global banning in the aftermath of World War I.

Experts and lawmakers warned before the strikes that although the chance is small, bombing Syria could increase the odds of a war between Russian Federation and the US.

"A plan for ending the crisis must be found, with a political solution".

Military and defense officials told CNN that at least one US Navy warship operating in the Red Sea participated in Friday's strikes, as well as US B-1 bombers.

Mrs May said that the strikes delivered a broader message to Russian Federation about the illegal use of chemical weapons following the poisoning of a former spy in the United Kingdom, an attack blamed on Russian Federation.

"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 global norm that prevents the use of these weapons".

The air strikes, which reportedly targeted a scientific research centre in Barzah near Damascus and an army depot near Homs, were in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack in the rebel-held Douma town by the Bashar al-Assad regime.
