The joint attack by the United States, Britain, and France, which began at 3:55 a.m. local time (0055 GMT), launched some 110 missiles targeting Syrian military sites in the Syrian capital Damascus and elsewhere, Syria's state news agency SANA said, citing the military.

The British Prime Minister detailed "limited and targeted strikes" on chemical weapons facilities in Syria.

"We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents".

President Macron insisted France play a key role in the attacks, after Syria crossed the "red line" he set out in May past year by using chemical weaponry again.

"This collective action sends a clear message that the worldwide community will not stand by and tolerate the use of chemical weapons", May told a press conference.

French President Emmanuel Macron said the strikes had been limited so far to Syria's chemical weapons facilities.

I have done so because I judge this action to be in Britain's national interest.

Speaking in Downing Street, May said the military strikes should be a "warning to Russia" before holding the Syrian government accountable for the chemical attack.

President Vladimir Putin has said Russian Federation will call an emergency session of the UN Security Council over air strikes on Syria.

Corbyn, a veteran anti-war campaigner, said he had written to May to ask her to publish in full the legal advice she had received prior to taking action.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said that Storm Shadow missiles had been launched by four RAF Tornados at a former missile base, 15 miles of Homs, where it is believe President al-Assad's regime has been residing.

Theresa May will address Parliament on Monday.

This persistent pattern of behavior must be stopped - not just to protect innocent people in Syria from the horrific deaths and casualties caused by chemical weapons but also because we can not allow the erosion of the global norm that prevents the use of these weapons.

"The Syrian regime has continued to use chemical weapons and will continue to do so".

"As we have seen in the past, inaction has its consequences - so PM right to join forces with our allies to take targeted & appropriate action".

Iranian President Rouhani says US-led military strikes in Syria will cause "destruction" in the Middle East.

"There is a wider question on the future political solution for Syria and that is a matter that we will continue to pursue in diplomatic and political channels with our worldwide partners and allies", May said.
