Jeremy Corbyn condemns UK involvement in ‘legally questionable’ air strikes

14 Apr., 2018

Jeremy Corbyn has described air strikes in Syria by US, British and French forces as a “legally questionable action”.

The Labour leader condemned the attack aimed at reducing the Syrian government’s chemical weapons capabilities, claiming it would make real accountability for war crimes less likely.

Mr Corbyn said Prime Minister Theresa May should have sought parliamentary approval for Britain’s participation in the strikes, rather than “trailing” after US President Donald Trump.

“Bombs won’t save lives or bring about peace,” he said in a statement on Saturday.
