Berd'Huis: French President Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday that he would respond to "proof" that the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had used chemical weapons, "at a time of our choosing".

Four RAF Tornados took off from RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus in the early hours and struck regime facilities linked to the production and use of chemical weapons.

The French military targeted Syria's main chemicals research centre and two other facilities overnight, ministers said, adding Russian Federation had been informed before the strikes were carried out. Mr Macron did not supply the source of his information.

Asked if he has been in touch with President Donald Trump regarding a possible military intervention, Macron said that he speaks daily with his American counterpart.

On Saturday, as reaction to the strikes rolled in from around the world, Trump wrote on Twitter: "A perfectly executed strike last night. Could be very soon or not so soon at all!"

Macron said France has "proof that last week chemical weapons were used, at least chlorine, and that they were used by Bashar al-Assad's regime".
