    US Missile Attack on Syrian Air Base

    In the early hours of April 7, the United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha’irat, located about 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the city of Homs. US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria's Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on the Syrian government.

    According to Homs Governor Talal Barazi, the attack killed five people and injured seven others.
