Syria strikes - as it happened: Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons capability 'set back for years' by bombing, Pentagon saysJoint air strikes by the US, UK and France have set back Syria’s chemical weapons capability “for years”, the US military said. Cruise missiles were fired at three sites in response to what Theresa May called the “despicable and barbaric” attack in Douma last week that is believed to have killed up to 75 people. Ms May said Bashar al-Assad could face even further strikes if chemical weapons are used again – and the US warned that they were “locked and loaded” if poison used again.
