TRUMP ATTACKS SYRIA WITH 59 TOMAHAWK CRUISE MISSILES DAYS AFTER ASSAD LAUNCHED CHEMICAL ATTACK AGAINST HIS OWN PEOPLE
- ‘No child of God should ever suffer such horror’: US military fires 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles on Trump’s orders at Homs airfield where Syrian dictator Assad launched chemical attack
( Daily Mail ) President Donald Trump launched a deadly US airstrike against a Syrian air base after a horrific nerve gas attack which killed more than 80 of his own citizens.
The US military fired 59 tomahawk missiles at the Bashar al-Assad controlled al-Shayrat military airfield near Homs at 8.45pm (EDT) on Thursday, killing at least five and injuring many more.
President Trump, speaking from his Mar-a-Lago estate where he is hosting the Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng as part of a two day summit, said the US had to act after the Syrian dictator launched the ‘horrible chemical weapons attack’ on innocent civilians.
‘Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack,’ he said. ‘It was a slow and brutal death for so many.’
