Following the accusations, the Syrian government has strongly denied being behind the alleged attack and stated that the missile strike was "brutal aggression".

Eight RAF jets took part in a joint operation with the U.S. and French military that targeted Syrian government facilities in Damascus and Homs in the early hours of Saturday.

British warplanes took part in the strikes, which destroyed sites suspected of hosting chemical weapons development and storage facilities. "You see a kind of continuum of from Salisbury to Syria in the reckless, contemptuous use of these chemical weapons, endangering public health in Salisbury in Wiltshire and completely indiscriminately killing children cowering in buildings in Douma in eastern Ghouta", he said.

Mr Johnson, who is instead meeting his European counterparts, stressed the airstrikes were the right thing to do.

"It is very important to stress it is not an attempt to change the tide of the war in Syria or to have a regime change", Johnson told reporters on arrival to a meeting of European Union foreign ministers in Luxembourg.

"Futhermore, there were clearly attempts to block any proper investigation, as we say with the Russian veto at the United Nations earlier in the week".

Meanwhile Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said Parliament should have been given a vote ahead of the strikes.

The Government is though expected to win global support for the strikes at today's European Union foreign affairs council in Luxembourg.

They will add: "The Council is supportive of all efforts aimed at the prevention of the use of chemical weapons".

"We are confident in our own assessment that the Syrian regime was highly likely responsible for this attack and that its persistent pattern of behaviour meant that it was highly likely to continue using chemical weapons".

Despite describing the intervention as "successful", Britain's Foreign Minister said there were now no plans for further attacks.

Netherlands foreign minister Stef Blok said they didn't participate in the strikes they had not been asked to.
