Description“Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May announced Saturday she authorized her country's forces to conduct "precision strikes" alongside America and France against Syria in the wake of the chemical attack that left dozens of civilians dead this week. "This persistent pattern of behavior must be stopped -- not just to protect innocent people in Syria from the horrific deaths and casualties caused by chemical weapons but also because we cannot allow the erosion of the international norm that prevents the use of these weapons," May said in a statement.

She added, "This is not about intervening in a civil war. It is not about regime change. It is about a limited and targeted strike that does not further escalate tensions in the region and that does everything possible to prevent civilian casualties."

French President Emmanuel Macron also issued a statement in French saying his country's "red line has been crossed" after the suspected chemical attack. He there was "no doubt" Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime was responsible.“
