Updated: Britain had no choice but to conduct missile strikes against Syria: PM Theresa May
Making the case for military action, the document further stated: "The UK is permitted under global law, on an exceptional basis, to take measures in order to alleviate overwhelming humanitarian suffering... there is convincing evidence, generally accepted by the worldwide community as a whole, of extreme humanitarian distress on a large scale, requiring immediate and urgent relief".
Ian Blackford, who heads the Scottish National Party group in Parliament, said May "presides over a minority government that has no majority or mandate for military action, and there must be no attempt to bypass Parliament". Britain's Parliament is in recess until Monday, though it could be recalled for an emergency debate.
Trump is expected to imminently announce military intervention after the Syrian regime, which is backed by President Putin, was accused of carrying out a chemical attack in Douma, just outside Damascus.
Earlier this month, a United Nations commission of inquiry released a report accusing the regime of committing war crimes in Eastern Ghouta, including the use of chemical weapons against civilians.
Merkel had said earlier this week that Germany wouldn't join allied military action against Syrian government forces.
France's government says it has no samples of the chemical weapons it believes were used in Syria, but launched a military response based on open-source information and intelligence gathering.
The assessment cites "the absence to date of chemical samples analyzed by our own laboratories".
It comes nearly exactly a year after a chemical attack in the northern Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun killed dozens of people. HMS Duncan is fitted with an air defence missile system able to blast incoming Russian missiles.
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said Syria's use of chemical weapons could not be tolerated but questioned whether the strikes would halt their use or contribute to ending the civil war.
The U.S., France and Britain have been consulting about launching a military strike, but the timing and scale of any action remain unclear.
"The US - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame her countries".
The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had said it meant to send investigators to Douma to look for evidence of a chemical attack.
