  • UK Prime Minister Theresa May's Statement on Syria Strikes

Speaking of Bashar al-Assad and his presumed role in the chemical attack, Trump said, "These are not the actions of a man".

"Reliable intelligence indicates that Syrian military officials have coordinated what appears to be the use of chemical weapons containing chlorine on Douma, on April 7", it said.

"We believe that all this history, all this so-called use of chemical weapons - statement". This is a new chapter in the Seven Years Old Civil War.

"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".

Britain and its allies accuse Damascus of carrying out the suspected attack on Douma and are considering military action against Syria in response. This massacre is a big increase in the trend of chemical weapons used by that bad government.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said it is "vital that parliament has the chance to debate and decide in advance" of any military action, which he warned "risks a risky escalation of the conflict".

Vince Cable, leader of the Liberal Democrats, said: "Riding the coattails of an erratic USA president is no substitute for a mandate from the House of Commons".
