These missile attacks were aimed at specific targets in Syria as a response to the chemical attack to a Syrian town held by rebel forces.
The US missiles hit at 3:45am Friday morning in Syria, and targeted the base’s airstrips, hangars, control tower and ammunition areas.
President Trump told reporters on Thursday, “There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the chemical weapons convention and ignored the urging of the UN Security Council.”
“I think what happened in Syria is a disgrace to humanity and he [President Bashar al-Assad] is there, and I guess he’s running things, so something should happen,” said Trump.
