|U.S. FIRES MISSILES INTO SYRIA|
U.S. President Donald Trump has ordered a military strike on a Syrian government military base in response to a suspected chemical attack earlier this week. It is the first U.S. attack on Syrian government forces since the civil war started in 2011.
Fifty-nine Tomahawk missiles were launched from U.S. warships in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. The officials say the target was an airbase near Homs, which it believes was part of Tuesday's chemical attack.
Syrian state media confirmed one of the country's airbases was attacked by U.S. missiles. Reuters says the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is reporting that at least four soldiers were killed.
During Tuesday's chemical attack in northwestern Syria, 72 people were killed and hundreds injured. The Syrian government denies carrying out the attack, and its ally Russia has condemned Western countries for jumping to conclusions.
