(Worthy News) - The U.S. launched missile strikes on Syria Friday night in coordination with Britain and France in retaliation for Syria’s chemical-weapons attack on civilians last weekend.
President Trump announced the attack in a live televised statement from the White House, saying he had ordered “precision strikes.”
“A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now underway,” Mr. Trump said.
The strikes came around 9 p.m. in Washington, 4 a.m. Saturday in Damascus, and targeted three Syrian military installations involved with the use of chemical weapons. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
