Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to ask her cabinet of ministers on Thursday to approve Britain's involvement in military action against Syrian chemical weapons infrastructure, Sky News said.

Ministers will consider the options for backing military action threatened by the United States and its allies.

Informed sources said May is prepared to take action against the Assad regime without first seeking Parliamentary consent.

Russian Federation has warned the West against attacking its Syrian ally, which is also supported by Iran, and says there was no chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma.

May had avoided apportioning blame for the alleged attack in the rebel-held city of Douma on Saturday, but on Wednesday said: "All the indications are that the Syrian regime was responsible".

"The government appears to be waiting for instructions from President Donald Trump on how to proceed", Corbyn said in a statement.

She further expressed her disinterest towards the fact-finding mission conducted by the Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons while reiterating that as per the United States intelligence President Assad orchestrated the attack. The Downing Street statement did not mention parliament, and a spokeswoman did not comment on those reports.

British lawmakers voted down taking military action against Damascus in 2013, in what was widely viewed as an assertion of parliamentary sovereignty on the use of force.

The latest events in Douma are examples of the Assad regime's "violation of global norms", British Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday. A YouGov poll showed just one in five members of the public support a strike on Syria.

Opposition Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable told the BBC that parliament "can and should be recalled immediately" to hold a vote on the latest possible action. May isn't legally required to do that, though it is conventional for lawmakers to be given the chance to vote. That then deterred the USA administration of Barack Obama from similar action.
