Syrian air base resume operation just a day after being attack by U.S.’s cruise missile


America’s first direct assault against the
Bashar al-Assad regime since the war in Syria broke out six years ago… took everyone by
surprise. U.S. President Donald Trump promised additional
actions, if deemed necessary… and the latest is this: the Syrian base resumed operations. Lee Ji-won looks into the possibility of more
missile attacks from Washington. Just a day after it was struck by cruise missiles,
the Syrian air base targeted by the U.S. is operating again. The governor of Syria’s Homs province confirmed
on Saturday that Syrian warplanes have taken off from Shayrat and that the air base has
resumed flights. Despite destroying as many as 20 Syrian aircraft,
the U.S. did not target the runways,… according to President Trump on Twitter, because runways
can be easily and quickly repaired. And according to President Trump, the U.S.
could strike again. That’s according to a letter he sent to Congress
on Saturday, explaining his reasons for ordering Friday’s strike. Trump wrote that his orders were vital for
the national security and foreign policy interests of the U.S.,… and that he will take additional
action, if necessary, to further those interests. Under the War Powers Resolution, the President
is required to submit to Congress an explanation for the use of military force within 48 hours. Two U.S. warships fired 59 cruise missiles
at an air base Syria late Thursday, following a chemical attack this week allegedly by the
Syrian government that killed scores of people, including at least 37 children. Meanwhile, White House press secretary Sean
Spicer told reporters Friday afternoon that these measures are part of ongoing efforts
to stop the use of chemical weapons, whether by North Korea or Syria — and many see the
Syria strike as a warning to Pyongyang and Beijing. North Korea considers Syria as a key ally
and has criticized the U.S. action. The North’s foreign ministry on Saturday called
the missile strike a “clear and unforgivable act of aggression against a sovereign state,”…
and proof “a million times over” that the North’s decision to strengthen its military
power was the right choice. It also brushed aside claims that the strike
was a warning to the North Korea,… saying the regime is not intimidated by such threats. Lee Ji-won, Arirang News.
