In recent weeks, Washington intensified its military activities in various countries, in particular by carrying out strikes in Syria and Afghanistan. Moreover, on April 8, Washington sent its aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, surrounded by a fleet of US warships toward the Korean Peninsula, stressing a week after that the North Korean nuclear issue would be taken care of.
On April 6, the United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syria's military airfield in Ash Sha’irat in response to the alleged chemical weapon use in the country's Idlib province, which the West was quickly to put the blame for on the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad despite Damascus refuting its involvement in the incident.
