U.S. President Donald Trump praised the military strike on Syria as a "perfectly executed" operation and said it was aimed at ending the use of such weapons of mass destruction. The Western states have accused forces of President Bashar Assad of an attack with the use of chemicals in Duma.
President Donald Trump has expressed his intention to pull all USA forces out of Syria in the near future.
"We urge responsible nations to condemn the Assad regime and to join us in our firm resolve to prevent chemical weapons from being used again", Mattis said.
Her remarks come after, the USA, along with the United Kingdom (UK) and France together launched airstrikes against suspected chemical weapons facilities in the war-torn country. That attack, [Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White says], hit a Syrian military air base and was meant to focus on Syria's ability to deliver chemical weapons. In 2017, the USA launched missiles against Syria following reports of a sarin gas attack.
Behind closed doors, Trump pushed for a more aggressive response than the one taken a year ago, wanting options that would involve attacks on targets in Syria associated with Russian Federation and Iran, officials said.
