UK Prime Minister Theresa May gave a statement in Downing Street, London, on Saturday morning, to address the joint airstrikes against the Syrian government's forces that had been launched by the UK, as well as USA and France, last night. May insisted, «it was both right and legal to take military action together with our closest allies.» She also stated that the intention of the strikes was an... Еще attempt to deter the use of chemical weapons and it «was not about interfering in a civil war, and it was not about regime change.» «This was a limited and targeted airstrike that took place last night, series of strikes that took place last night by the three… to insure that we see return to that international norm on the prohibition of use of chemical weapons,» May added. The US, UK and France have launched airstrikes against multiple government targets in Damascus early on Saturday morning, targeting alleged chemical weapons sites as well as a Syrian military base in Homs. The airstrikes are a response to the claims of an alleged chemical weapons attack on Douma last week. Syria and Russia have both denied the allegations, calling them 'staged' and a 'fabrication.'
