U.S, UK, France bomb Syria over chemical attack

U.S. President Donald Trump has announced that he ordered a strike on Syria in response to last weekend’s chemical weapons attack.

Mr Trump, while addressing the nation on Friday night, said the joint strike with France and the United Kingdom was currently underway.

“A short time ago, I ordered the United States Armed Forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

“A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now underway,” Mr Trump said.

Pentagon, at a press briefing on the strike at 10 p.m., said the strikes did maximum damages to Assad’s regime’s chemical weapons sites.

Mr Trump said that the “massacre” last weekend in Syria “was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use 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,” Trump said.

Mr Trump also took a swipe at Russia and Iran, condemning their continued support to Assad’s regime.

“To Iran and to Russia I ask, what kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?

“The nations of the world can be judged by the friends they keep. No nation can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states, brutal tyrants, and murderous dictators,” Trump said.
