US, France and UK launch air strikes in Syria in retaliation to the chemical attack
US President Donald Trump launched air strikes in Syria on Friday along with United Kingdom and France in response to the chemical weapons attack that killed more than 40 people and injured hundreds. “I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator of Bashar al-Assad. This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemicals weapons used by that very terrible regime. The evil and the despicable attack left mothers and fathers, infants and children thrashing in pain and gasping for air. These are not the actions of a man they are crimes of a monster instead,” he added.
