"We should not be surprised if we detect major intrusions into U.S., United Kingdom and French cyberspace and social media", Barrons said.

The former missile base was assessed to have been used by the Syrian regime to "keep chemical weapon precursors stockpiled in breach of Syria's obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention", the MoD said in a statement. The fact of this attack should surprise no one.

But May said intelligence pointed to the Syrian government being behind the suspected chemical attack on the rebel-held Damascus suburb of Douma last Saturday, and Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said speed was "essential".

Polls in recent days have shown public wariness of military intervention in Syria, with Britain still haunted by its participation in the US-led invasion of Iraq.

"We have sought to use every possible diplomatic channel to achieve this", the prime minister said.

Mourners followed her coffin in procession into the stadium, where the funeral began with the singing of the national anthem. She appealed and was found guilty of being an accessory, and the sentence was reduced to a fine and a suspended prison term.

But our efforts have been repeatedly thwarted.

"The government should do whatever possible to push Russian Federation and the United States to agree to an independent UN-led investigation of last weekend's horrific chemical weapons attack so that those responsible can be held to account", he added.

May said the aim was to deter the Syrian regime authorities from further use of chemical weapons and to send a message to the wider world that it was unacceptable to use such weapons.

Alexander Yakovenko, the Russian ambassador to London, said the White Helmets, a British-funded civil defense force, were responsible for staging fake chemical attacks.

The leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn said on Saturday there was no legal basis for British strikes against Syria and such action would encourage others to behave in the same way.

Delhi will now travel to Kolkata to take on the Knight Riders on Monday and Mumbai host Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday. Rashid Khan , who was the star for Hyderabad with the ball, followed Pathan back to the pavilion the very next ball.

May said the missile strike was created to minimize any civilian casualties and was not an attempt to change the Syrian government.

"We have seen a regime appearing to think they can use chemical weapons with impunity".

"My thoughts are with our fearless servicemen and women who have been called to duty". The speed with which we are acting is essential in cooperating with our partners to alleviate further humanitarian suffering and to maintain the vital security of our operations.

"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", she said.

The Prime Minister defended her Government's decision to carry out air strikes in Syria, claiming the air strikes were in Britain's national interest. That is what our country has always done. And what we will continue to do.
