A USS Monterey guided-missile cruiser from the US Navy reportedly launched a Tomahawk projectile against government targets in Damascus early on Saturday morning from international waters in the Arabian Sea. USS Monterey is deployed in the US 5th Fleet area of operations in support of ‘maritime security’ aiming to reassure allies and partners. The US, UK and France launched airstrikes against... Еще multiple government targets in Damascus targeting alleged chemical weapons sites as well as a Syrian military base in Homs. The airstrikes are a response to a claim of a supposed chemical weapons attack on Douma last week. Syria and Russia have both denied the allegations, calling them 'staged' and a 'fabrication.'
