"Never said when an attack on Syria would take place".

Britain's defence ministry said "very careful scientific analysis" had been applied to maximise the destruction of stockpiled chemicals while minimising any risk of contamination to surrounding areas. Trump wrote on Twitter.

US President Donald Trump said the strikes were launched to damage Syria's chemical weapons capabilities.

Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the US did not coordinate targets with or notify the Russian government of the strikes, beyond normal airspace "de-confliction" communications.

Mattis seemed to acknowledge those qualms, however.

He first made clear that he meant to launch new attacks in a series of tweets earlier this week, issuing warnings against not only Syrian President Bashar al-Assad but also Russian Federation and Iran.

"After seven years of war, we don't believe that anyone will come to help the Syrian people anymore", he said. He noted that establishing deterrence against use of such weapons represented "a vital national security interest of the US".

She said: "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". "The US will be a partner and a friend".

British Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed the United Kingdom had authorised armed forces to conduct co-ordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use.

Mr Roharabacher said a mere military intervention by the United States would only contribute to more chaos in Syria. Officials further contended that Trump could look weak if - like a unilateral military strike on Syria a year ago - a new assault failed to deter Assad.

Trump continued to weigh his options Thursday for responding to a chemical gas attack in Syria as his aides warned a miscalculated response could spark a dramatic escalation between the United States, Russia and Iran.

He said increased engagement from countries including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Egypt can ensure that Iran does not profit from the defeat of the Islamic State group.

Macron's comments were widely interpreted as an argument directed at critics anxious about a reprise of France's participation in a 2011 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation intervention in Libya, which helped bring down ruler Moammar Gadhafi but threw Libya into deeper chaos.

Later, White House lawyer Ty Cobb denied an NBC News report that negotiations with Mueller have broken down. "So they'll be made fairly soon". Trump said strikes on Syria are under way.

Macron went further in an interview with France's TF1, suggesting the gas used was chlorine.

Trump's threat of retaliatory military action prompted a slew of Russian comments warning that USA strikes could trigger a direct military clash between them. Other nations should step in, Trump said.

A strike could be carried out by long-range missiles launched from submarines, ships or aircraft and targeted at Syrian military installations.

Jarrod Agen, Vice President Mike Pence's deputy chief of staff, said Pence called congressional leaders from his hotel suite in Lima, Peru, to notify them of the president's plan to address the nation about the Syrian air strikes.
