Moments ago, US President Donald Trump addressed the America people with a prepared statement that military action in Syria by the US and its partners, the UK and France, has been approved and is currently on-going.
The strikes are part of an “international response” against “the monster” Bashar al-Assad and his regime in retaliation for the alleged chemical attack conducted over the weekend in Douma, on the outskirts of Damascus.
