Air strikes on Syria will not change course of war: UK's Johnson

Following the accusations, the Syrian government has strongly denied being behind the alleged attack and stated that the missile strike was "brutal aggression".

The Sunday Times reported security sources who warned that the government was bracing itself for "kompromat" attacks, where embarrassing or compromising material is released about members of the cabinet and other high ranking officials.

His comments come ahead of a what is expected to be a heated Parliamentary debate on the Government's decision to launch strikes with France and the United States without first seeking the approval of MPs.

"There is no proposal on the table for further attacks because so far, thank heavens, the Assad regime has not been so foolish to launch another chemical weapons attack", Johnson said.

Cabinet minister Boris Johnson on Sunday stated that the United Kingdom should take "every possible precaution" to defend itself from the prospect of Russian retaliation following Friday's air strikes on Syria.

"You can imagine that people around the world are looking now and saying 'finally, someone stood up against that".

"The Council is supportive of all efforts aimed at the prevention of the use of chemical weapons", says the draft conclusion of the summit published by Politico EU.

Mr Johnson said Mrs May will be making a statement in the House of Commons on Monday and it will give parliamentarians a chance to hold the executive to account.

"We are confident in our own assessment that the Syrian regime was highly likely responsible for this attack and that its persistent pattern of behaviour meant that it was highly likely to continue using chemical weapons".

"I'm afraid the Syrian war, in many ways, will go on in its frightful, miserable way - but it was the world saying, we've had enough of the use of chemical weapons".

"I think Parliament should have had a say in this and I think the Prime Minister could have done that quite easily", Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said yesterday.

Mr Corbyn warned of an escalation in a "proxy war" between the USA and Russian Federation.

"Where is the legal basis for this?" he said.
