UK, US and France launch strikes on Syria

"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.

The attack was in response to Syrian dictator Bashad al-Assad's chemical attack on civilians last week that killed at least 42 people, many of them children.

"The sole aim of our attack is to establish a powerful impediment against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons".

"This is not about intervening in a civil war".

In a post made on Twitter, Johnson said: "Welcome the news of United Kingdom military strikes against major chemical weapons facilities in Syria alongside our USA and French allies".

"We have. evidence that proves Britain was directly involved in organising this provocation", defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said.

"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.

Russian Federation called the council meeting to challenge the West over the legality of the military action.

American President Donald Trump has approved military action in Syria.

First Minister and SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon has warned the strikes risk a risky escalation of the conflict and of global tensions.

Opposition Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable told the BBC that parliament "can and should be recalled immediately" to hold a vote on the latest possible action.
