The video of the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman deploying to the Middle East has emerged on YouTube.
The footage specifically showed relatives of the carrier's crewmembers waving goodbye to them as the vehicle prepares to set sail for a new mission.
Earlier, the US Navy announced that the USS Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group, currently stationed in Norfolk, Virginia, will be deployed to the Middle East.
Apart from the Harry S. Truman, the strike group includes the guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy as well as the destroyers USS Arleigh Burke, USS Bulkeley, USS Forrest Sherman and USS Farragut.
The group's redeployment came shortly after Washington accused the Syrian government of using chemical weapons in Douma that allegedly led to civilian casualties.
President Donald Trump blamed Russia and Iran for helping Syrian President Bashar Assad and promised to decide on his response to the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma within 48 hours.
The Russian Defense Ministry has, meanwhile, reported that an analysis of the soil in Douma, which was taken right after the alleged chemical weapons attack, has revealed the absence of nerve agents and poisonous substances containing chlorine in the area.
