Enough is enough: Boris Johnson leads media charge on Syria strikes

There are fears that it could be a precursor to a campaign of cyber attacks by the Kremlin, and the Foreign Secretary said Britain must take "every possible precaution" to guard against it.

Boris Johnson has defended the decision to launch air strikes on Syria ahead of a Parliamentary debate on the issue, saying they were "right for the United Kingdom and right for the world".

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

"I'm afraid the Syrian war will go on in its frightful, miserable way".

The British planes launched eight missiles at a chemical weapons storage facility, which the Ministry of Defence said was "some distance from any known concentrations of civilian habitation". And I think one of the most distressing things about the events of the last few years has been the contemptuous growth in the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian theatre of conflict...

"And the world said "enough" to the use of such weapons".

Britain and its allies have since the strikes renewed diplomatic efforts at the United Nations, circulating a joint draft resolution at the Security Council calling for an investigation into chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

The attack came the same day that the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) mission was set to start the probe into the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, which the West had immediately blamed on Damascus.
