The Prime Minister will tell parliament that United Kingdom air strikes in Syria were carried out to alleviate further suffering in the country.

USA, France along with Great Britain launched air strikes on Syria today after intelligence reports indicated Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government launched the recent chemical attack in Damascus's Douma a week ago.

May said the aim was to deter the Syrian authorities from further use of chemical weapons and to send a message to the wider world that it was unacceptable to use such weapons.

"Furthermore, there were clearly attempts to block any proper investigation, as we saw with the Russian veto at the United Nations earlier in the week".

Over 100 missiles were fired on the morning of Saturday, April 14, targeting what representatives of coalition forces called chemical weapons sites in retaliation for an earlier poison gas attack.

Theresa May approved deployment of British forces in the missile strike against Syria after government lawyers told her it was lawful on humanitarian grounds.

Asked why she had proceeded without consulting parliament, May cited operational security consideration.

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.

In her comments, May also alluded to a nerve agent attack in Britain last month on a former Russian spy and his daughter.

Mr Trump said the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons on Douma was a "significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very bad regime".

She said that at an emergency cabinet meeting in London on Thursday "we agreed that it was both right and legal to take military action" after hearing legal advice.

May launched the airstrikes without approval from Parliament stating it as national interest and that it was an obligation to deter all those using chemical weapons to kill people.

"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.

Giving her verdict on last Saturday's attack, Mrs may described the actions of Assad's forces as "cruel and abhorrent".

Despite her careful language, there was immediate criticism from opposition lawmakers who said May should have consulted parliament before joining US-led action in Syria.

Germany, Italy, Canada, Australia and European Council President Donald Tusk have "all have expressed their support for the actions that Britain, France and America have taken", the PM will add.

The United States is preparing to impose sanctions on Russian Federation for "covering up" the actions of the Assad regime.
