G7 endorses US-led air strikes in Syria

Trump had said: "Mission accomplished" on Twitter after the strikes, although US Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie at the Pentagon acknowledged elements of the program remained and he could not guarantee that Syria would be unable to conduct a chemical attack in the future.

Chemical weapons experts are due to arrive in Douma tomorrow to probe an alleged poison gas attack, Russian officials said, as the U.S. voiced fears Moscow may already have "tampered with" evidence at the site.

In a statement, the African Union said it "strongly condemns any use of chemical and other weapons prohibited under worldwide law".

She added: "I think that Parliament should have been recalled before the strike".

She said it was morally and legally right to strike and "degrade Syria's chemical weapons activity" adding that the military action was not about "regime change".

Mr Johnson, speaking at a summit of European Union foreign ministers, stressed it was "not an attempt to change the tide of the war in Syria or to have regime change" and "the Syrian war in many ways will go on in its frightful, miserable way".

In London, British Prime Minister Theresa May was facing criticism over her decision to bypass parliament and take part in the air strikes against Syria.

"And we can not wait to alleviate further humanitarian suffering caused by chemical weapons attacks".

The airstrikes received extreme backlash from Russian Federation, an ally of Assad's regime.

An email message seeking comment from the Russian embassy in Washington, D.C., received no response. British and USA officials said they had "high confidence" that the Kremlin was behind the attacks.

"Ultimately, what Trump is doing with these deterrence exercises is influencing a very narrow bandwidth within the Syrian civil war, which is the use of chemical weapons", he said, pointing out chemical weapons attacks have killed an estimated 1,900 people in a war that has claimed half a million lives.

The bombings marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Assad and ally Russian Federation. The Syrian government and its Russian ally deny involvement.

Following weekend missile strikes on Syria by the US, France and Britain, Russia traded accusations with Western nations yesterday, dismissing as "a blatant lie" accusations that Moscow was hindering the investigation in Douma.

France, the United States and Britain circulated a draft resolution to the UN Security Council late on Saturday that aims to establish an independent inquiry into who is responsible for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

The rally in Omayyad Square in Syria's capital Damascus was described on state TV as a "salute to the achievements of the Arab Syrian Army".

"For we can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised - either within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom or elsewhere". "The fact he was making this more normal and that Russian Federation was covering this up, all that has got to stop".

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the military strikes violated the U.N. Charter and that if they continue, "it will inevitably entail chaos in global relations", according to a Kremlin statement on Sunday.

As the Kremlin press office reports, the leaders exchanged views on the situation after the USA and its allies' missile strike in the Syrian territory.

It didn't say who carried out the early Tuesday airstrikes.
