WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump plans to confer with senior military leaders today, after he threatened a big price to pay for a suspected poison gas attack in Syria that killed women and children.
Trump was set to get a briefing and have dinner with military leaders. Today is the first day on the job for his new national security adviser, John Bolton, who has previously advocated significant airstrikes against Syria.
The White House deliberations came as Russia and the Syrian military blamed Israel for a pre-dawn missile attack on a major air base in central Syria, saying Israeli fighter jets launched the missiles from Lebanons air space. A war-monitoring group said the airstrikes killed 14 people, including Iranians active in Syria.
