Thursday April 6th, the United States launched a targeted strike at a Syrian airbase that was used to launch planes carrying chemical weapons. The US used nearly 60 tomahawk missiles to level the airfield. The attack took place as President Donald Trump was meeting in Florida with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping.
