Damascus Being Hit Tonight!

Loud explosions light up skies over Syrian capital, heavy smoke as President Trump announces airstrikes.

Loud explosions lit up the skies over the Syrian capital, as Trump announced the airstrikes.

In an announcement from the White House, Trump said the U.S. is prepared to “sustain” pressure on Assad until he ends what the president called a criminal pattern of killing his own people with international banned chemical weapons.

Gen. Jack Keane (Ret.) said Friday that President Trump needs to “go big” in a decisive military retaliation against Syrian President Bashar Assad for the recent chemical attack in Douma.

The April 7 attack unfolded amid a resumed offensive by the Syrian government. The Assad regime has denied responsibility, but many believe it was behind the deadly strike.

“We’ve got to go big and it’s got to be decisive, and we’ve got to truly take away the delivery capability that he has so he cannot use chemical weapons again,” Keane said.

Nearly five dozen cruise missiles were launched at a Syrian airfield by the U.S. in April 2017 in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens.
