BREAKING: British Government ‘FULLY SUPPORTS’ Donald Trump’s missile blast against Syria
Mr Fallon said the Assad regime has committed previous gas attacks “flouting international law”.
He said: “This is the first time this has happened during the Trump administration and they decided they want to help deter it in the future.”
A Government spokesperson said: “Overnight, the US has taken military action against the Syrian regime, targeting the airfield in Shayrut which was used to launch the chemical weapons attack earlier this week.
“The UK Government fully supports the US action, which we believe was an appropriate response to the barbaric chemical weapons attack launched by the Syrian regime, and is intended to deter further attacks.”
