LONDON – Defence Secretary Michael Fallon says that missile strikes by the United States on a Syrian airfield are not part of a new military campaign in the region, and emphasised that Britain does not intend to take part in any further action.

“We don’t see last night’s strike like that,” Fallon said when asked by ITV News if the strikes ordered by US President Trump were part of a new campaign in the region.

“This strike was very limited to one airfield, it was entirely appropriate, it’s designed to deter the regime from carrying out further chemical weapons attacks,” Fallon said in the appearance on ITV.

“So we don’t see it as the start of a different military campaign.”

Fallon made clear that the United Kingdom’s government has given its full support to the USA over the attacks, noting that the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime in Syria passed a clear red line in international law.
