It has been reported that the Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered British submarines to position themselves within ‘striking distance’ of Syria.
The news comes after days of speculation about the United Kingdom going into an arrangement with the United States of America and France to carry out air strikes.
This all follows confirmation that Donald Trump has blamed the Syrian government for a recent chemical attack on their own people.
According to a report in The Telegraph:
President Donald Trump has warned Syria and its ally Russia that missiles “will be coming” as Theresa May made preparations for Britain to join US airstrikes against the Assad regime.
The US President used his favoured medium of Twitter to announce his intentions, saying: “Get ready Russia” for missiles that would be “nice and new and ‘smart!’”
The Daily Telegraph has learnt that Mrs May has ordered British submarines to move within missile range of Syria in readiness for strikes against the Assad regime that could begin as early as Thursday night.
The Prime Minister has recalled ministers from their Easter break to attend an emergency Cabinet meeting on Thursday afternoon.
