Late Monday night, U.S. and Arab partners commenced “massive” airstrikes against Islamic State (ISIS) targets in Syria, opening up a new front in the “war” on ISIS.

The U.S. Navy has released video of the tomahawk missiles launching off of the U.S.S. George H.W. Bush, U.S.S. Arleigh Burke, and the USS Philippine Sea.

The major news networks also aired amateur video on the ground in Syria showing the bombs hitting their targets.

 

 

This morning, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby again acknowledged that the U.S. is indeed “at war” with the Islamic State.

Along with strikes against ISIS targets, U.S. air power bombed an Al-Qaeda affiliate group known as Khorasan who was believed to be in the late stages of planning a terrorist attack against western assets. The Pentagon confirmed the plot was "eliminated."
