Syria air strikes: Live updates as US, UK and France launch military response to chemical weapons attack in Douma
By: Natalie Evans - UPDATED 03:36, 14 APR 2018

Theresa May said there was "no practicable alternative to the use of force" to deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime, adding the strikes were not about "regime change"

US president Donald Trump has said air strikes against Syria are "underway" in a combined operation with the UK and France.

Giving a statement at the White House, Mr Trump said the strikes were in response to the alleged chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma last Saturday.

He said: "This evil and despicable act left mothers and fathers and children thrashing in pain and gasping for air.

"The combined American, British and French response will integrate all instruments of our national power."

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has warned the West against air strikes, saying they risk causing further instability in the region and upsetting international peace and security.

May held an emergency Cabinet meeting on Thursday afternoon to discuss Britain's response to a chemical weapons attack allegedly carried out by the Syrian regime on its own people.

Trump has previously warned Russia's ally to "get ready" for missiles while the White House refused to rule out direct conflict with Moscow.

EasyJet and other airlines have re-routed flights near the conflict zone after Europe's air traffic control agency warned of possible missile strikes in the eastern Mediterranean region.

We knew this day was coming - the issues have forced the hand of many.

God Help Us All

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
