About 36% Britons Support, 40% Oppose Western Strikes on Syria

Allies vague on evidence linking Syria to chemical attack About 36% Britons Support, 40% Oppose Western Strikes on Syria

"The strike has been what many people here are bracing for", Doane said.

Four British fighter jets struck a military base near Homs where Britain said Syrian government forces were holding chemical weapon components.

Mattis noted that a year ago, USA forces conducted a "unilateral strike on a single site", whereas he said these strikes "will result in a long term degradation to the Syrians' capability to research, develop, and employ biological and chemical weapons".

"The government should do whatever possible to push Russian Federation and the United States to agree to an independent UN-led investigation of last weekend's horrific chemical weapons attack so that those responsible can be held to account", he added. "It is not about regime change", May said in a statement.

The opposition leader questioned the prime minister's statement that the Syria attack is "right and legal".

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

Britain has blamed Russian Federation for the poisoning - a charge vehemently denied by Moscow which has accused London of failing to come up with evidence for its claims.

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

"We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised, either in Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom or elsewhere".

British lawmakers voted down taking military action against Damascus in 2013, in what was widely viewed as an assertion of parliamentary sovereignty on the use of force.

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.

May held an emergency cabinet meeting to discuss possible action on Thursday and there had been calls for the British parliament to be consulted before any air strikes.

Former Labour foreign secretary David Miliband, now head of humanitarian relief group the International Rescue Committee, said military action needed to be part of a wider political strategy.

In a statement Friday night, U.S. President Donald Trump outlined strikes being carried out against the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad after a chemical weapon attack earlier in the week.
