United States Department of Defense - DoDWashington, D.C. – The United States fired Tomahawk missiles into Syria today in retaliation for the regime of Bashar Assad using nerve agents to attack his own people. 

President Donald J. Trump ordered the attack on Al-Shayrat Air Base, the base from which the chemical attack on Syria’s Idlib province was launched. The missiles were launched from U.S. Navy ships in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. 

The attack is in retaliation for the Syrian dictator for using banned chemical agents in the April 4th, 2017 attack.
