President Donald Trump launched 40 missiles into Syria Thursday night for its use of banned chemical weapons that killed at least 100 people.
NBC News reported:
The United States launched dozens of cruise missiles Thursday night at a Syrian airfield in response to what it believes was Syria’s use of banned chemical weapons that killed at least 100 people, U.S. military officials told NBC News.
Two U.S. warships in the Mediterranean Sea fired 59 Tomahawk missiles intended for a single target — Ash Sha’irat in Homs province in western Syria, the officials said. That’s the airfield from which the United States believes the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad fired the banned weapons.
The strikes in Syria come on the 100 year anniversary of the United States entry into World War I on April 6, 1917.
