US and Allies Strike Syria

The United States has begun strikes against Syria, in cooperation with its allies. The Times of Israel reports that Donald Trump announced on Friday night that strikes are “now underway,” in retaliation for Syria’s chemical weapons attack:

US President Donald Trump announced late Friday that a joint US-British-French operation had been launched on Syria, targeting the “criminal” regime of Bashar Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians and to deter him from doing it again.

Loud explosions lit up the skies over the Syrian capital as Trump announced the airstrikes.

“A short time ago, I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad,” Trump said in a primetime televised address to the nation.

“A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now under way. We thank them both. This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very terrible regime…”

Please keep all service members of the U.S. and its allies in your prayers, as well as the innocent victims in Syria.
