Syrian President defies Donald Trump's airstrikes by bombing town where 70 died in chemical attack AGAIN





The Syrian town that was targeted in a chemical weapons attack this week - leading to US airstrikes against the Assad regime - has been bombed AGAIN this morning.
Further misery was today heaped on the people of Khan Sheikhoun, where 70 died from nerve poisons on Tuesday.
Today's fresh bombing campaign - believed to have been carried out by President Bashar al-Assad's forces - comes in defiance of US president Donald Trump's overnight raids on a Syrian military base.
 Nearly 60 cruise missiles were launched from US Navy destroyers in the early hours of Friday morning.
Facing his biggest foreign policy crisis since taking office in January, Trump  took the toughest direct US action yet in Syria's six-year civil war.
News agencies are today reporting that Khan Sheikhoun has been bombed again this morning as forces loyal to Assad seek to crush the opposition.
Announcing his airstrikes in an address to the world, Trump said last night: "Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched.
