USA Military has fired around 60 Cruise Missiles at a Syrian Airbase in response to the Chemical Attacks carried out by Bashaar-ul-Assad’s regime against Civilian Population earlier this week. About 60 Tomahawk Cruise Missiles were fired by USA from a number of warships stationed in the Mediterranean Sea.
As per sources, the missiles struck an airbase named Shayrat in Syria’s Homs Province. This is the area from which the planes that conducted the Chemical Attack in Idlib are believed to have originated. The missiles targeted Air Defences, Aircrafts, Hangars and Fuel.
Homs Governor Talal Barazi told Associated French Press (AFP) that the US Military Attack on Syrian Airbase has caused several deaths. There are several casualties but the exact number of casualties and injured ones is yet to be determined. He said the parts of the base are on fire and it will take some time to determine the extent of the damages.
Talal Barazi said that they condemn this attack targeting Syrian Military Bases is condemnable. He said the forces present at the base provide important support in fighting against the Islamic State in the Palmyra region, home to a famed desert city that Syrian troops recaptured from Jihadists last month.
The Russian Military, who was thought to have been there at the Air Base, was informed by the Pentagon about the Air Strikes before the missiles struck. The US Military said that the initial received indications were that the Missile Strike had severely damaged and destroyed Syrian Aircrafts and other support infrastructure.
Donald Trump orders Military Strike on Syria
President Donald Trump ordered a massive Military Strike on a Syrian Air Base in wake of the barbaric Chemical Attacks earlier this week which he blamed Syrian President Bashaar al-Assad for. In the Chemical Attack 70 people including innocent children lost their lives.
In a brief Television Address delivered hours after the UN Security Council failed to agree on a proof into the apparent chemical attack, Trump confirmed the US Strike on Syria and urged all Civilized Nations to unite for the cause of ending this bloodshed in Syria. He said that beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this barbaric attack.
“Tonight I ordered a targeted Military Strike on the Airfield in Syria from where the Chemical Attack was launched. It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly Chemical Weapons. There is no dispute and doubt in it that Syria used banned Chemical Weapons.”, Trump said.
He further said that Assad did is terrible, what happened in Syria is truly one of the egregious crimes and it shouldn’t have happened and it shouldn’t be allowed to happen again,” he said. Donald Trump stated that Bashaar-ul-Assad is there and he is running things, so something should happen.
