US eyes eight potential strike targets in Syria


With US President Donald Trump meeting with officials to discuss the US response to the alleged Syrian government chemical attack in Douma, one source tells CNBC that there are eight possible targets that the US is eyeing, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

 

According to the report, the US might be considering using some "nice and new" missiles on eight targets which may include two Syrian airfields, a research center and a chemical weapons facility.

 

Though it's still unclear how the US will proceed, Trump is expected to meet with Defense Secretary James Mattis and General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, on Thursday to decide the next move.

 

"We're looking very, very seriously, very closely at that whole situation and we'll see what happens folks," Trump told a group of reporters Thursday.

 

The report follows Trump's Wednesday warning to Russia and Syria to "get ready" for a missile strike.
