US,Allies Hit 3 Chemical Weapons Sites in Syria; Due to Syrian Deadly Chemical Attack on Douma

The US, UK, and France bombed three government sites in Syria early today (April 14, 2018) in an operation targeting chemical weapons facilities, according to the BBC website.

The move is a response to a chemical attack on the town of Douma last week which killed over 40 people, including several women and children.

"The purpose of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons," U.S. President Donald Trump said.

The wave of strikes is the most significant attack against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government by Western powers in seven years of Syria's ongoing civil war.
