The Heat: US coalition airstrikes in Syria

The Heat

Syria War

The United States along with the UK and France launched a series of airstrikes inside Syria.

The missile strikes were a targeted response to a suspected chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma, a town outside Damascus. The U.S. and its allies believe the Syrian government orchestrated the attack but so far no evidence has been made public to support that claim. So, what’s next in this geopolitical chess match?
