US Navy Fires Cruise Missiles at Syrian Base

The US Navy says it fired 59 Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles (TLAMs) at various targets in Syria last night:

“A total of 59 TLAMs targeted aircraft, hardened aircraft shelters, petroleum and logistical storage, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems, and radars. As always, the U.S. took extraordinary measures to avoid civilian casualties and to comply with the Law of Armed Conflict. Every precaution was taken to execute this strike with minimal risk to personnel at the airfield.”

The attack was in response to a poison gas attack on Syrian civilians.
