US, France, UK bombed Syria

Friday President Donald Trump announced that he had ordered a Syrian attack in response to the chemical weapons attack last week.

"I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of the Syrian dictator of Bashar al-Assad," Trump told the White House Diplomatic Reception Room.

According to a CNN report, witnesses heard a heavy explosion in the capital Damascus.

US warships used the B-1 bombers and ships, according to US defense officials.

Trump said he made the decision to take action that the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad took action against his own people and called it a "monster".

More than 500,000 people have died in the civil war in Syria while millions more are refugees.

The United States has been involved in attacking France and the United Kingdom for a campaign to combat production, proliferation and use of chemical weapons.

The offensive in Syria will continue as long as the regime does not stop its use of chemical weapons.

"We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents," Trump said.
