The U.S. military has launched 59 missiles into Syria, an official has reportedly confirmed to NBC. Syrian government-controlled airfield in Homs was the target of the strikes.
“The missiles hit aircraft and infrastructure including the runway,” reported NBC.
The U.S military action is apparently in retaliation to the chemical weapon attack which took place this week in Syria, which has been blamed on Syrian government without any investigation.
It is in doubt whether Russia, which has the forces on the ground in Syria, suffered any casualties from the strikes.

Libertarian-leaning Senator Rand Paul tweeted that Trump needs Congressional authorization for these actions.
The President needs Congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution.
