Air strikes in Syria showed "enough is enough" over use of chemical weapons, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson say



Air strikes in Syria were about saying "enough is enough" over the use of chemical weapons, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has said.

 
Mr Johnson said the action by the US, UK and France would not "turn the tide" of the conflict and was not about regime change.


But he said he hoped it would act as a deterrent to more "barbaric" chemical attacks.


Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has questioned the legality of the action.


He called for new legislation to ensure MPs get a vote before future military action is taken, and said he would only back intervention in Syria if the United Nations backed it.
Conservatives said this would never happen due to Russia using its veto at the UN.


Downing Street has published its legal case for its part in the strikes, which targeted military bases.
