US STRIKES IN SYRIA HAVE DESTROYED 20% OF OPERATIONAL SYRIAN AIRCRAFTS :

US cruise missile strike in Syria destroyed 20 percent of operational Syrian aircraft, Defense Secretary Mattis was quoted as saying.   On Friday, the United States  launched a massive military strike on a Syrian air base in retaliation to a barbaric chemical attack on civilians allegedly by embattled President Bashar al-Assads regime and asked all ‘civilised’ countries to join it to end the killing of innocent people.  On President Donald Trumps orders, US warships in the Mediterranean Sea launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Shayrat air base, in Homs governorate, where the warplanes that carried out the chemical attacks are based, US officials said.  The missiles from two US warships hit at 3:45 am (local time) and targeted the bases airstrips, hangars, control tower and ammunition areas.    The Rediff.com : 11th.
