WATCH: US launch cruise missiles at Syrian airbase

Under orders from President Donald J. Trump the U.S. launched 59 tomahawk missiles into Syria Thursday.

The target was the air base Al-Shayrat which is an airfield held by Bashar al-Assad. The attack was in response to a nerve gas attack that Assad is suspected of deploying on his own people. Over 70 people, including children were victims of the nerve gas which Trump said “No child of God should ever suffer such horror,” and condemned the attacks

Currently the U.S. is assessing to take further action or not.
