Britain says we had to attack Syria, strikes were highly successful

The strikes came a week after an alleged gas attack that killed more than 40 people outside Damascus, but which Syria said was a "fabrication" meant to justify military action.

Also, the Pentagon released a map displaying targets in the joint strike operation between the United States, France and the United Kingdom in Syria.

"If it's the Russians, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll figure it out, and we'll know the answers quite soon", Trump said on Monday.

Former British general and military expert Jonathan Shaw was abruptly cut off by a Sky News host after he cast doubt on the veracity of an alleged chemical weapons attack in the Syrian city of Douma.

He said the mission was to "establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons,"as he criticised Iran and Russian Federation for supporting Assad".

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

Speaking of Assad and his suspected role in last week's chemical weapons attack, Trump said, "These are not the actions of a man".

- Strikes were launched by British, French and United States forces at 2am BST at three sites connected with the Syrian regime's chemical weapons programme.

- More than 100 missiles were collectively launched overnight from British, French and American forces in Syria.

Meanwhile, the US President has confirmed that "precision strikes" were ordered on Syria to deter Assad from using chemical weapons.

"When it comes to this use of chemical weapons, it is clear to Canada that chemical weapons were used and that they were used by the Assad regime", Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Friday.

Russian Federation and Iran, supporters of the Assad regime, condemned the strikes.

Russia's Foreign Ministry said the strikes came as Syria had "a chance of a peaceful future" and were an "outrageous violation" of global law.

A total of 100 cruise and air-to-surface missiles were launched at targets in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry stated, noting that two United States warships carried out the attack from the Red Sea, as well as tactical aviation over the Mediterranean Sea and B-1B bombers from al-Tanf area. Officials said Syrian air defenses engaged toward the end of the salvo but were ineffective.

"The worst apprehensions have come true". It said that "all responsibility" rests with Washington, London and Paris. "As other nations step up their contributions we look forward to the day we can bring our warriors home".

"Russia's Foreign Ministry described the strikes as an "outrageous violation" of worldwide law".

Syrian state TV said the army's air defences shot down 13 missiles fired in a US-led attack in the Kiswah area south of the capital Damascus. This time, our allies and we have struck harder.

The minister further stated that, "On the question of chemical weapons, there is a red line that must not be crossed, and if it should be crossed again, there will be another intervention".

Trump said the operation would be conducted in cooperation with the militaries of France and Britain.
