The United States, Britain, and France have launched strikes against the Assad regime.
US President Donald Trump has announced “precision strikes” targets related to chemical weapons capabilities in Syria.
Trump’s remarks can be seen below:
Reuters is reporting that large explosions have been heard in the Syrian capitol of Damascus.
The US has said regime change is not a goal of their strikes.
US officials say American ships and aircraft have been utilized in the military strikes.
In a Pentagon briefing, General James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis said there are no plans for additional strikes at this time, but that strikes could take place again if the US concludes that Assad used chemical weapons in the future.
