BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 A.M.) – U.S. President Donald Trump has recently warned that the Syrian government will have a “price to pay” for the recent Douma attack that was blamed on their forces in the East Ghouta.
Similar to last year’s U.S. attack, a naval vessel has reportedly moved towards Syria’s territorial waters after leaving the nearby country of Cyprus.
According to reports, the missile destroyer, the U.S.S. Donald Cook, has left Cyprus for Syrian waters.

Should the U.S. launch their attack in the coming hours, there are probable sites that they will they will target near the Syrian capital city of Damascus.
Among the likely targets for the U.S. forces are the Al-Seen Airport in rural Homs, Mezzeh Airbase in rural Damascus, and the Dumayr Airport in rural Damascus.
These three Syrian military airports are located in near Damascus and are most often used to launch air raids over the East Ghouta region.
Last year, the U.S. Navy fired several tomahawk cruise missiles towards the Al-Seen Airport in rural Homs and it still may be the main target for Washington.
