'Bombs won't save lives' in Syria, opposition leader Corbyn tells May

The leader of Britain's largest opposition party is suggesting Theresa May, the prime minister, could face a backlash in parliament for her decision to join the USA and France in launching strikes against Syria.

The Labour leader condemned the attacks carried out by RAF jets alongside those from the U.S. and France in Syria during the early hours of this morning in the wake of the chemical weapons attack which Mrs May has said was orchestrated by the country's President Bashar al-Assad.

Abbott said that giving up on the possibility of a political solution was to "give up all hope", adding: "What we're interested in is an end to the violence and we don't believe that further bombing in this situation will bring an end to violence".

He added: "This legally questionable action risks escalating further, as U.S. defence secretary James Mattis has admitted, an already devastating conflict and therefore makes real accountability for war crimes and use of chemical weapons less, not more likely".

In Britain, opposition is building up to any British involvement in military strikes in Syria, particularly without the issue being taken to Parliament first.

Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable did not rule out backing military action but he said Parliament would have to give its approval, with conditions.

The UK government is "waiting for instructions" from Donald Trump about whether to launch a missile strike on Syria, Jeremy Corbyn has said.

Corbyn said he would be pushing for the Government to release the legal advice it has received on action and demanding it goes back to the United Nations to get a new resolution.

He told broadcasters the use of chemical weapons was "appalling and disgusting".

"The need to restart genuine negotiations for peace and an inclusive political settlement of the Syrian conflict, including the withdrawal of all foreign forces, could not be more urgent". In 2013, MPs voted down British military action against the Assad regime and the latest incident raised questions over whether they should be allowed another vote. "But the USA administration is giving alarmingly contradictory signals".

There have been calls from opposition parties and some Conservative MPs for Parliament to have a vote beforehand.

No details of United Kingdom involvement in any military action in Syria were mentioned in the Downing Street statement.

Speaking at Downing Street on Saturday morning, May said the strikes were "limited and targeted" and created to degrade the Syrian regime's ability to develop and use chemical weapons.
