On Thursday night, Donald Trump directed U.S. Navy warships stationed in the Mediterranean Sea to fire Tomahawk missiles into Syria. Now, the Pentagon has released footage of this massive airstrike.

The airstrike was a reaction to the devastating chemical attack in Syria this week that left over 100 people dead. Officials in the Pentagon confirmed that the airfield that was targeted was being used to store chemical weapons and was a base for Syrian air forces – including the aircraft that conducted the chemical weapons attack.
Daily Mail reported that Russia is furious about Trump’s move, and Vladimir Putin has promised to strengthen Assad’s air defences, will stop sharing intelligence with Washington and has diverted its main Black Sea fleet warship The Admiral Grigorovich to the Syrian port of Tartus.
