France fired 12 cruise missiles, three from a frigate and nine from aircraft, while the US provided the bulk of the firepower with 85 missiles in total.

The attack targeted Syria from all angles, with ships and submarines firing from the Sea and Air with Fighter jets taking off from Cyprus, France and Qatar.

The Pentagon said the bombing raid was “Precise, overwhelming and effective”.

Boris Johnson attacked Russia for backing Assad, The Foreign Secretary said: “Russia has repeatedly shielded the Assad Regime from investigation and censure.

“Russia has repeated its lies and obfuscation that we have seen in this country since the attempted murder of Sergei and Yulia Skripal including the grotesque assertion that the UK is somehow behind the attack in Douma.”

He insisted “the UK and our allies have done everything in our power to deter the barbaric use of these weapons” after a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma killed at least 70 people.
