    Agencies (Qasioun) – In a letter sent to the US Congress on Monday, The US President Donald Trump said that the US Armed Forces participating in the anti-ISIS campaign in Syria have undertaken "a limited number of strikes against Syrian government and pro-Syrian government forces."

     

    Trump wrote "These strikes were lawful measures to counter immediate threats to United States and partner forces engaged in that campaign,"

     

    Trump previously ordered a massive strike with Tomahawk missiles on the regime forces' airbase using that chemical incident in the Idlib province as a pretext for the chemical attack conducted by the Syrian regime.
