Friday night, President Trump announced a series of targeted airstrikes against Syria in retaliation over last week’s chemical attack in Damascus. Russia called the strikes an “act of aggression” and warned there would be consequences.

According to reports, the U.S. led airstrikes destroyed three main targets in Syria. The first target was a scientific research center near the capital city of Damascus. The second and third targets were chemical weapons storage facilities and a command post near the Homs province.

The airstrikes, a joint operation between the U.S., France, and U.K., came in response to a suspected chemical attack allegedly ordered by Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. The second such attack in as many years in war-torn Syria.

It’s also the second time the U.S. has responded with a missile strike. Addressing the media, Secretary of Defense James Mattis said “Clearly, the Assad regime did not get the message last year. This time, we and our allies have struck harder.”
