Russian Federation claims chemical attack in Syria was 'staged and directed by UK'

Russian Federation claims chemical attack in Syria was 'staged and directed by UK'

Theresa May is reportedly adamant that the United Kingdom plays an equal part in any military action against Syria.

Corbyn later wrote to May seeking assurance that there would be no further bombing raids and urged the government to negotiate a pause in the Syrian civil war. Stop the War, a pacifist coalition once chaired by Corbyn, has called a demonstration outside the British parliament on Monday to protest the strikes.

"There has been no decision to take military action at this point".

The rush to action following an alleged chemical weapons attack on the rebel-held town of Douma on April 7 was condemned by several British opposition parties who wanted parliament recalled.

It does not sit again until Monday, when May will face MPs´ questions on the strikes.

Four British fighter jets struck a military base near Homs where Britain said Syrian government forces were holding chemical weapon components.

Alexander Yakovenko, the Russian ambassador to London, said the White Helmets, a British-funded civil defense force, were responsible for staging fake chemical attacks. "As I discussed with President Trump and President Macron, it was a limited, targeted and effective strike with clear boundaries that expressly sought to avoid escalation and did everything possible to prevent civilian casualties", according her televised remarks on Sky News. Igor Konashenkov, a Russian defense ministry spokesman, said: "We have ... evidence that proves Britain was directly involved in organizing this provocation".

However, there was some support for May.

The Kremlin said on Wednesday that the United States had invented reports of a chemical attack in the area, and warned against the use of this as justification for increased military action.

"Cabinet agreed on the need to take action to alleviate humanitarian distress and to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime", Downing Street said after May held an emergency meeting with her top team.
