But "strangers entered as we were in a state of chaos and spread a rumour among people there had been a chemical attack, and people became alarmed".
The strikes, carried out alongside the United States, mark May's first major military action since coming to power nearly two years ago.
Hezbollah and other Iranian-backed militias have a large military presence in Syria and are well entrenched in central and eastern areas near the Iraqi border.
"We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalized, either within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom, or elsewhere", May said - linking the chemical attack in Syria with the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter last month with a military-grade nerve agent in the English city of Salisbury.
Theresa May has accused Russian Federation and Syria of trying to cover up a chemical attack which killed dozens last weekend.
Douma was the last rebel-held town near Damascus, and the target of a government offensive in February and March that killed hundreds of people and displaced tens of thousands.
The aim, she said, is "to see American troops come home, but we are not going to leave until we know we have accomplished those things".
The Kremlin yesterday dismissed as "groundless" claims that Russian Federation and Syria have not allowed a fact-finding mission by the world's chemical weapons watchdog to enter Douma to probe an alleged gas attack.
Separately, Syrian state television has reported a missile attack near Homs targeting Shayrat airbase.

The report said Syrian air defences responded and shot down the missiles.
As far as the permits are concerned, the United Nations says the inspectors have already been given all the permits they require. Syria and its allies blamed Israel for that attack.
She said, "These strikes are about deterring the barbaric use of chemical weapons in Syria and beyond".
Mekdad said that the investigators had held meetings with the Syrian government and discussed about carrying out its work with transparency, impartiality, and accuracy.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said he was only certain about intelligence that chlorine gas was used by Assad's forces on April 7 before America's strikes on Syria. He said the inspectors can not access the site because it needs permission from United Nations security experts. A sarin attack triggered Trump's decision previous year to strike a Syrian air base. US missiles could kill Russian military personnel who are deeply embedded with Syrian forces, triggering retaliation and escalation.
Stating that the alleged use, if true, is deplorable, Rajamony pointed out that the use of chemical weapons anywhere, at any time, by anybody, under any circumstances, can not be justified and the perpetrators of such abhorrent acts must be held accountable.
In the wake of the furious row over the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in Salisbury, Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said East-West relations were now worse than they were at the time of the Cold War.
Monday., U.S. ambassador to the OPCW Kenneth Ward hinted that Russian Federation may have interfered with the attack site.
Earlier, Russia suggested the OPCW Executive Council pass a brief resolution in support of the organization's fact-finding mission in Syria.
Now, she is enjoying an unusual spell of worldwide support for her action in Syria and her stance against Moscow over a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in Britain.
