Four Royal Air Force Tornado jets using Storm Shadow missiles had taken part in the attack on a military facility near Homs where it was assessed Syria had stockpiled chemicals, Britain's Ministry of Defence (MoD) said.

Western countries hit Syria, although neither Russian military experts, nor local residents confirmed fact of chemical attack in the city of Douma, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated.

May on Saturday made her case for action in the face of opposition from much of the public and the Labour Party, saying in a further statement it was highly likely Assad's regime had used chemical weapons. We hit the sites, the heart of the chem-weapons program.

It added: "In these circumstances, the worldwide community can not remain inactive and should take all necessary measures to prevent such attacks from being repeated in the future, especially against [a] defenseless civilian population".

U.S. defense sources said at least one U.S. warship in the Red Sea participated in the Syrian airstrikes.

He adds that, "America does not seek an indefinite presence in Syria - under no circumstances" and says that, "As other nations step up our contributions, we look forward to the day when we can bring our warriors home".

This strike does not come as a surprise as Trump tweeted a number of tweets on Thursday on the issue.

Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said late Friday that that the operation was "a one-time shot" but did not rule out further attacks. "And he is probably going to use chemical warfare agents".

President Trump announced the decision to take military action last night from the White House, with the first of the missiles landing in Damascus as he addressed the media.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had said Britain should press for an independent United Nations -led investigation into the suspected chemical attack in Douma rather than wait for instructions from Trump on how to proceed. He said the alleged attack had been "staged" by foreign intelligence services.

"Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military". He stated, "We cannot purge the world of evil or act everywhere". Indeed, her speech explaining British involvement in the strikes on Syria this morning makes a pointed reference to that episode.

Russian Federation said it was being "threatened" and said the air strikes "will not be left without consequences" in a statement from its ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, posted on Twitter.

"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line", Haley said.

President Donald Trump announced air strikes saying that the U.S. does not want maintain an "indefinite" presence in Syria.

"Very soon, very soon, we're coming out", Trump said in telegraphing his thoughts to a crowd in Richfield, Ohio, on March 30. "We warned that such actions would not be left without consequences". It said that "all responsibility" rests with Washington, London and Paris.

Huge blasts were reported around Damascus early on Saturday, moments after the US, France, and Britain announced they were striking Syria's chemical weapons capabilities. Syrian rescuers and medics said the attack on Douma killed at least 40 people.

He says there is "no doubt" that the Syrian government is responsible.

During the past week, Western leaders were in an apparent rush to blame the Syrian government of conducting the chemical attack in the town of Douma.

Speaking to the House Armed Services Committee on Thursday, Mattis suggested chemical weapons differed from conventional arms in their barbarism.

The UK and French Government also launched strikes against targets in Syria in the early hours of Saturday morning, following a week of threats of retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack on civilians. It was not immediately clear if Russian-supplied interceptors were activated. Some clapped their hands and danced, others drove in convoys, honking their horns.
