Breaking News…. US Airstrikes in Syria

Early Tuesday, the US and its coalition partners engaged in airstrikes against the IS capital of Raqqa in Syria. The US used a mixture of drones and fighter jets in addition to warplanes from Arab allies; US Navy ships also fired tomahawk cruise missiles. The targets were said to be weapons supplies, depots, barracks and buildings the militants use for command and control. This is the first time there have been strikes against IS in Syria, which is important as the strikes are not approved by the Assad regime.
