Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al-Mokdad confirmed that government officials had met OPCW inspectors, according to Syrian state news agency SANA.

The MoD said the facility was a former missile base, located around 15 miles west of Homs, where the Syrian regime was believed to keep a stockpile of chemical weapon precursors, which can be used to make blister agents such as mustard gas or nerve agents such as sarin.

In the Syrian capital, thousands of people gathered on the main Umayyad square to express their support for President Bashar al-Assad in the aftermath of the missile strikes.

Global powers will not "turn a blind eye" to the use of of chemical weapons, the United Kingdom foreign secretary has warned a day after US-led strikes in Syria, according to a BBC News report said.

The governments of the US, UK and France say 105 missiles were launched at three sites in Syria as part of a coordinated operation early on the morning of 14 April, at around 4am local time.

Russian Federation has reacted strongly to the air strikes and warned of "consequences".

Trump launched a military strike against the Syrian regime almost one year ago targeting a government airbase also in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed civilians.

They arrived in Damascus on Saturday but there were no reports they yet had traveled to Douma to begin their field work.

WPI inflation hits eight-month low at 2.47% in March
It revised downwards forecast for retail inflation to 4.7-5.1 per cent for April-September and 4.4 per cent for October-March. The index for manufactured goods rose by 0.4 percent to 115.7 (provisional) from 115.2 (provisional) for the previous month.

"We will ensure they can work professionally, objectively, impartially and free of any pressure", Assistant Foreign Minister Ayman Soussan told AFP.

An OPCW meeting devoted to the possible use of chemical weapons in Syria is being held in The Hague on Monday.

The allies also acted because of concerns that Syrian forces and their Russian allies may already have tried to clean up important evidence.

U.S. leader Trump exclaimed "Mission Accomplished" after the pre-dawn strikes that lit up the sky around Damascus in a tweet that drew swift derision from his critics and parallels with president George W. Bush's notoriously premature Iraq war victory speech on an aircraft carrier 15 years ago.

The Pentagon said no further action was planned but Washington's envoy to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, warned that the US was "locked and loaded" should another gas attack occur.

Writing in the Telegraph, Boris Johnson said countries should know President Assad has not "got away with it".

There's been widespread condemnation of the incident including from US President Donald Trump.

Assad denounced a "campaign of deceit and lies at the (United Nations) Security Council" after a push by Moscow on Saturday to condemn the strikes fell far short. The Syrian government and its ally Russian Federation denied the allegations.
