Trump said U.S., British and French forces had launched airstrikes targeting sites associated with Syria’s chemical-weapons capabilities, in response to a suspected attack by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime last weekend.
“A short time ago I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes,” Trump said in a statement on Friday.
Here is footage of the strikes from the Syrian Arab News Agency, via Storyful:
The strikes are intended to deter the Assad regime from using chemical weapons, which the government allegedly did last week in a suburb of Damascus. The order comes after Trump earlier in the week warned Syrian ally Russia to get ready for a military response in Syria.
“To Iran and to Russia, I ask what kind of nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men women and children,” Trump said in a televised statement.
On Wednesday, Trump, via Twitter, hinted that a military strike was imminent.
Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!
