President Trump orders airstrikes against Syria (video includes Pentagon briefing statement from Defense Secretary James Mattis) | ABC News Special Report

The United States has begun military action on Friday April 13, 2018 less than one week ago after horrific chemical attacks on women and children in Syria occurred on April 7 2018. President Donald Trump told the American people a retaliatory strike against Syria for its chemical attacks against civilians was underway as of late Friday, and would be part of a sustained response against the Assad regime in Syria.

“A combined operation is now underway,” Trump said at the White House, saying the operation involved the militaries of France, the U.S. and Britain.

No details were immediately available on what warships or aircraft were involved. The Pentagon was expected to brief reporters later Friday.

US congressional officials were informed of US strikes on Syria before President Trump made the public announcement, according administration official.

After 9:00 p.m. CT, officials from the US Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia stated that no additional attacks are planned tonight. A Pentagon official on Friday night in Washington D.C. said that “yesterday” (Thursday April 12,2018) the United States acquired evidence that the Syrian regime was responsible for the chemical attacks that occurred on April 7, 2018. Mattis also stated that the United States is reasonably certain that chlorine was used, and that the use of Sarin is not ruled out.

The military attacks were designed to degrade the ability of the Syrian war machine to use chemical weapons, according to Defense Secretary James Mattis.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said that a little over a double of the amount of weapons were used this year compared to last year.
