The newspaper Baghdad Post reports, citing its sources, that it is likely that the US and its allies will carry out another strike on Assad regime targets by the end of this month. According to the sources, the additional warships of the coalition that are located in the Mediterranean, show that the operation against Assad is not over yet.
"The next strike will be much more destructive for Assad and his allies," the Baghdad Post notes.
The United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, stated at the UN Security Council meeting that the US is ready to hit Assad again if his regime continues to use the chemical weapons . " If Assad regime uses chemical weapons again, the US is locked and loaded," said Haley.
“We are confident that we have crippled Syria’s chemical weapons program. We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will,” she continued.
Earlier, the Director of the US Joint Staff, Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie, said that last night's strike did not eradicate all of Assad's chemical weapons. "There's some left, but we dealt them a severe blow, " he pointed out.
