Damascus, SANA – The US carried out a missile strike against an air base in Syria’s Central Region at dawn on Friday, a military source announced.

“Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the air field in Syria,” said Trump. “It is in this vital national security of the United States,” he added.

On Tuesday, the General Command of the Army and the Armed Forces categorically denied that the Syrian Arab Army used chemical materials in Khan Sheikhoun.

The warplanes of the US.-led coalition have committed dozens of massacres against the Syrians in the countryside of Aleppo, Hasaka, Deir Ezzor and Raqqa, the latest being in al-Mansoura village in Raqqa last March which left dozens of civilians dead or injured.
Last September, four U.S. warplanes hit a site of the Syrian Arab Army in al-Tharda Mountain in the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor in support of ISIS terrorist organization, whose militants were able to take control of the Mountain following the
