UK’s May Says It Was ‘Right and Legal’ To Take Military Action in Syria
Local Editor

British Prime Minister Theresa May defended her "grave" decision to join the US-led strike against Syria without MPs' consent. She maintained that the military action was "right and legal" and sends a message to "others."

During her Saturday news conference, May repeated multiple times how "right" the decision to strike the Arab Republic was, despite the lack of parliamentary approval for the military option.

She said that the attack was a "success" according to a preliminary assessment, while the data is still being evaluated.

Reporters grilled May on the topic of failing to get parliamentary consent before taking the decision, but she maintained the same mantra, and said she will address MPs next week.

For his part, Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn, who earlier accused her of "waiting for instructions" from the US president, condemned the strike: "bombs won't save lives or bring about peace."

The US-led strike on m
ultiple sites in Syria, supported by France and the UK, came under the pretext of responding to the alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria last Saturday.

In her statement, May claimed that the Syrian government is to blame for the incident, citing "open source accounts" and non-governmental group reports.
