Planes are carrying out attacks from the same Syrian airfield the US attacked


The airfield in Syria that the U.S. military attacked Thursday night is still being used to carry out attacks, the AFP reported.

According to the AFP, two planes "took off from inside the Shayrat base, which is partially back in service, and struck targets near Palmyra."

The U.S. attacked the Shayrat airfield Thursday night. The U.S. military believes the airfield was used by Syrian President Bashar Assad to launch a chemical attack on his own people on Tuesday.

According to AFP, Syrian military forces moved their planes from the airfield after being warned a strike was coming.
