May authorizes targeted strikes on Syria's chemical weapons capability

Theresa-May-700-01

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has stated that she had authorized British armed forces to conduct co-ordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use.

In a statement, May said: "A significant body of information including intelligence" pointed to Syrian government responsibility for a suspected chemical attack last Saturday. There is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime.

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."

This strike will also send a clear signal to anyone else who believes they can use chemical weapons with impunity.
This is the first time as prime minister that I have had to take the decision to commit our armed forces in combat and it is not a decision I have taken lightly. I have done so because I judge this action to be in Britain's national interest."
