The US, UK and France have launched airstrikes against multiple government targets in Damascus early on Saturday morning, targeting alleged chemical weapons sites.

Smoke can be seen rising from a scientific research facility in Barzeh, which the coalition claims is being used for the production of chemical and biological weapons.

The strikes are a response to a supposed chemical weapons attack on Douma last week. Syria and Russia have both denied the allegations, calling them ‘staged’ and a ‘fabrication’.
