Immediately following fake news reports that Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons on his citizens, President Trump condemned the Syrian president and made it clear he wouldn’t hesitate to use military action.
Just a day after, reports are coming in that the United States has issued its first attack on the Syria regime.
According to Fox News,
“The United States launched dozens of cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield early Friday in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians.
The Tomahawk missile strikes destroyed portions of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s military infrastructure. Fox has learned there was one primary target an airbase in Shayrat, located outside Homs, a US official tells Fox News
The military plans called for 43 Tomahawks to be fired from the USS Porter and USS Ross. The two Destroyers in the Med can carry 70 Tomahawks altogether.”
