Victims of President Bashir al-Assad's 2013 chemical weapons attack and refugees who fled their homes in an attempt to survive are praising President Trump for ordering airstrikes on a Syrian airbase last night. Nearly 60 Tomahawk missiles were launched from two U.S. destroyers in the Mediterranean Sea in response to Assad's chemical attack earlier this week, which left hundreds dead.

Putin and Bashar al Asad bombed my school, killed my friends & robbed my childhood. It's time to punish the killers of children in Syria.— Bana Alabed (@AlabedBana) April 7, 2017
