Syriasaid Saturday its air defenses responded to USA -led strikes on military targets and research facilities in the country, condemning the attacks as a violation of global law. As he spoke, explosions rocked Damascus.
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.
"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.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Saturday that the USA -led attack on Syria reflects the "failure" of Western powers to achieve their goals in Syria after the defeat of the foreign-backed militants.
"The aggression is a flagrant violation of global law, a breach of the worldwide community's will, and it is doomed to fail", said state news agency SANA. "Our warnings have been left unheard.We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences", Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said in a statement.
French President Emmanuel Macron said France had joined the U.S. and Britain in an ongoing operation of strikes to target Syria's chemical weapons facilities. Where is our "Thank you America?"
He said the mission was to "establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons,"as he criticised Iran and Russian Federation for supporting Assad".
The strikes were conducted by the United States, the UK and France following a suspected chemical attack on the town of Douma, which left an estimated 70 people dead.
"I'm not going to say that they're going to be unable to conduct a chemical attack in the future", McKenzie said.

The Pentagon said Saturday that a series of military strikes on Syria carried out by a US-led coalition struck at the "heart" of Syria's chemical weapons program. Russian air defences based in Syria were not used, the ministry said.
Jaish al-Islam has said it only agreed to the deal because of the Syrian government's purported use of toxic chemicals on Douma, which medics said killed more than 40 people.
Russia's Defense Ministry was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies that Syria intercepted the USA and allied attacks using Soviet-produced hardware, including the Buk missile system.
"Dozens of men, women and children were massacred with chemical weapons", he said of the Douma incident a week ago - adding that "the red line had been crossed". "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible".
He added: "To Iran and to Russian Federation I ask - what kind of regime wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?"
There were no details on non-civilian casualties.
