Updates on Syria Strike: What We Know So Far

While the Syrian governance has confirmed that the Homs Air Force Base has been hit by what appears to be numerous cruise missiles - the United States of America's Pentagon has thus far denied any involvement - outside of confirming they're monitoring what could be a retaliatory strike for the alleged gas attack in Syria.

“At this time, the Department of Defense is not conducting air strikes in Syria. However, we continue to closely watch the situation and support the ongoing diplomatic efforts to hold those who use chemical weapons, in Syria and otherwise, accountable," a Pentagon statement said.

The response on social media has been one of purely speculatory as of this time, although it no doubt seems to be a factual assertion that such strikes have indeed taken place, believed to have been conducted through Lebanese airspace.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Syria</a>: pro-regime sources now talking about attacks by the &quot;Zionist air force&quot;.

The Syrian state television services have granted numerous reports including that the T-4 airbase in Homs had been hit, initially reporting that the US was responsible. Later, reports from Pro-Assad forces suggested, in their own terms, that the attacks were at the hands of the “Zionist air force,” giving credence to the responsibility laying at the hands of Israel for the attacks.

Israel has yet to confirm such a claim, outside of the ongoing attacks on Hamas in Gaza, there's been little prerogative from any nation to confirm that an attack has occurred inside of Syria.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Reports of unidentified fighters flying low over <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Lebanon</a> being reported all over. <br><br>Something is definitely happening (in <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Syria</a>?) tonight <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Thomas van Linge (@ThomasVLinge) <a href="">April 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

It's logistically unlikely that France or the United States would make such a series or airstrikes through Lebanese airspace, especially when the United States has bases closer to the perimeter of the alleged strike zone, Homs Air Base.

Local sources all report that the explosions shook the ground of Homs, caused by aerial bombardments.

There are also numerous accounts on Twitter which claim the Israeli Air Force were the culprits, but again there's no confirmation, and the numerous nations stationed in the region would undoubtedly know the answer but seem to remain silent.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Breaking</a> <br>Video from East <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Lebanon</a> documents the passage of military aircraft Lebanese airspace before entering the <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Syria</a>-n airspace.<a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Israel</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#USA</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Russia</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Iran</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Eva J.

If Israel has acted inside Syria, they've done so on their own recognizance, without any assistance from the United States of America or NATO.

Such an action wouldn't be the first, and at this time it's widely believed that Israel is the most likely to have conducted the strikes.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Regarding the air strikes on <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Syria</a>: The U.S has not (as of yet) taken responsibility, meaning <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Israel</a> has potentially conducted the strike, possibly with, or without <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#USA</a> support.<br>There&#39;s still the potential for future unilateral / coalition strikes from USA &amp; possibly <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#France</a>.</p>&mdash; Strategic Sentinel (@StratSentinel) <a href="">April 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

Interestingly enough, President Trump and Emmanuel Macron of France had previously agreed to a “strong, joint response” to the alleged gas attack inside of Syria, so the bombings have many clueless as to why they'd have occurred when there was already a unilateral agreement to cooperate between the United States and France.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">List of munitions used by the Israeli Air Force<a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Jack Posobiec (@JackPosobiec) <a href="">April 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

The allegations that Tomahawk cruise missiles were used seems to be suggestive of the Israeli Air Force being responsible as well, is that the French do not have Tomahawks and that France also would be increasingly unlikely to take action after having made an agreement with President Trump to cooperate together.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">New: Trump and Macron agreed to coordinate a strong, joint response on Syria <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Jack Posobiec (@JackPosobiec) <a href="">April 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

It's no doubt a controversial issue, one that's divided and fractured many inside of America, who question the likelihood of Bashar al-Assad commencing to attack his own people after having essentially won the war in Syria.

It also comes just days after President Trump declared that he intended to pull troops out of Syria, which would have given the Syrian leadership full reign over his nation yet again.

Then, almost instantaneously, a chemical attack injures children and adults, with some saying as many as 150 people suffered at the hands of the attack.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">1) What’s going on in Syria? Very simple, folks, and it’s not good<br><br>A short timeline:<br>March 29- “We’re leaving Syria very soon.”- DJT <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Falco (@Nick_Falco) <a href="">April 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

Undoubtedly, there is a desire to keep American troops inside of Syria, and tonight's airstrikes, if confirmed, could be efforts to prevent the planned withdrawal of the President.

The world is certainly watching, and whatever decision the President of the United States of America makes next could ultimately decide the future of the region.
