Having ordered to attack the al-Shayrat air base near the western Syrian city of Homs, U.S. President Donald Trump knew that the Syrian government hadn’t used any chemical weapons in Khan Shaykhun. The same time the current U.S. administration was making every effort to develop an information campaign against Damascus.
This was reported by Welt am Sonntag. The newspaper stressed that the Syrian aircraft’s attack provoked a number of detonations of ammunition, which were stored in the house, where extremists were hiding. As a result, a cloud of toxic gas was formed.
Besides, it is also reported that one of the U.S. advisers on security issues directly told Trump that the attack of the Syrian Air Force was not chemical. However, the American leader ordered to launch more than 50 Tomahawk missiles in just a few hours.
