Here's The Aftermath Of Trump's Strike On The Syrian Airbase

The US warned the Russians ahead of Syria missile strikes Here's The Aftermath Of Trump's Strike On The Syrian Airbase

A USA official said the Russians had been warned before the US launched at least 59 tomahawk missiles aimed at Syria.

"Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched". The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that seven Syrian officers were killed in the strikes, including a colonel.

Though reports claimed the United States warned Russian Federation of the military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, reports circulating Friday morning indicate Russian Federation is not happy.

"My fellow Americans, on Tuesday, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a awful chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians". A US official told Fox News that the primary target was an airbase at Shayrat, outside Homs.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Friday that China opposed the use of chemical weapons by any party under any circumstances.

U.S. President Donald Trump insisted his first military venture since taking office was in the "vital national security interest of the United States".

He was charged with trying to recruit Americans and gathering "economic intelligence" while working at the bank's NY branch. He has since advocated for warmer ties between the US and Russian Federation . "They will be investigated and prosecuted".

It happened again. Syrian government forces used a chemical weapon against the town of Khan Sheikhoun in southern Idlib province. He said he personally spoke to Mr. Trump on Friday morning and expressed his support for the strike.

The Pentagon said warships fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield near the city of Homs, which is where the Tuesday gas attack reportedly originated.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Putin believed the USA attacks on Syria showed aggression against a sovereign state.

A warplane on Friday bombed the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun, where a chemical attack killed scores of people this week and prompted USA missile strikes, a witness in the rebel-held area and a war monitoring group said.

He said it's "comforting" to see punitive measures taken against Syrian President Bashar Assad's government because only then will there be incentive to change. "Many innocent people became victims from the chemical attacks". We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who have passed. Next day, he even used the word "foolish" for Obama, saying: "Again, to our very foolish leader, do not attack Syria - If you do many very bad things will happen and from the fight the United States gets nothing".
