This was LIVE coverage at the time it began.  The attacks are COMPLETED as of 10:30 PM eastern US time.

President Donald Trump has confirmed the US, UK and France are attacking Syria right now.

Trump said he launched missile strikes on Syria in retaliation for an apparent chemical attack by the regime of Bashar al-Assad on a rebel town. 

Trump said the missile strikes, which were focused on chemical weapons sites, would be carried out in coordination with France and the U.K. and he made clear that the U.S. is prepared to sustain the strikes until Syria stops using chemical weapons. 

The president also blasted Iran and Russia for supporting Assad’s regime, particularly in the wake of the chemical attack.

Russia May TORPEDO U.S. Ships

A torpedo attack could cause “considerable damage” to USS Donald Cook, a guided missile destroyer operating near Syria, Vladimir Masorin, former commander-in-chief of the Russian Navy, has said. 

Although Russia probably won’t be required to “sink” the Arleigh Burke-class warship, Masorin said the weapon would be effective nonetheless. 

Masorin, who commanded the Caspian Flotilla between 1996 and 2002, warned US President Donald Trump to refrain from bombing Syria over the chemical attack. 

Waging war is a “dangerous thing” for the US who live in a “completely different world” to Russia, whose Navy has “no fear”, he said on Friday.
