America, Britain and France have launched airstrikes against the Syrian regime to punish its chemical attack that killed more than 70 people on a rebel-held town near the Syrian capital last weekend.

Donald Trump announced the joint operation in a television statement at 9pm, saying the strikes would target the regime’s ability to use chemical weapons.

The United States launched the response, along with assurance from France and the United Kingdom, Trump stated.

French President Emmanuel Macron said the operation is currently targeting the “clandestine chemical arsenal” in Syria.

“This evening I have authorized British armed forces to conduct coordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime’s chemical weapons capability and deter their use,” British Prime Minister Theresa May said in a statement.

Trump’s announcement immediately preceded reports of loud explosions lighting up the sky in Damascus. Syrian TV reported that Syrian air defenses have responded to the U.S.-British-French attack.

Trump said the U.S. is prepared to “sustain” pressure on Assad until he ends what the president called a criminal pattern of killing his own people with internationally banned chemical weapons. It wasn’t immediately clear whether Trump meant the allied military operation would extend beyond the initial nighttime round of missile strikes.

At least 40 people died in the chemical attack in Douma last Saturday, about 10 miles east of Damascus, and over 500 people, mostly women and children, were injured and brought to medical centers. The attack occurred amid a resumed offensive by Syrian government forces after the collapse of a truce. Syrian activists, rescuers and medics said families suffocated in their homes.

Assad’s actions, Trump said, “are not the actions of a man,” but “are the crimes of a monster instead.”

President Trump condemned Russia and Iran for propping up the Syrian regime, asking “what kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?””

Addressing the nation, Mr Trump said: “I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator of Bashar al-Assad.

“The combined American, British and French response to these atrocities will integrate all instruments of our national power: military, economic and diplomatic.

“We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents”.

The president’s statement from the White House comes after Mrs May warned on Friday that the “abhorrent” use of chemical weapons cannot be allowed to become “the new norm”.

More to come.

God Bless.

TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
