Trump's Syria Remains To Be Removed. Was Today's Attack in Damascus the Largest Since?

Editor’s note: Noah is joined by Gen. Garrett Smith, the former Deputy National Security Advisor for Syria, to discuss the development with WND.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Friday more than 50 people were killed in two missile attacks on Damascus, marking the largest offensive since a partial U.S. withdrawal from Syria.

President Trump announced on May 21 his administration would remove 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria.

The attacks targeted a neighborhood in Damascus and one in the northwestern part of the country. According to local media outlets, 63 were killed in the attacks, including at least 21 children.

General Garrett Smith is a former deputy national security advisor for Syria and currently the CEO of FrontlineMilitary.com.

Smith was a principal advisor for the Obama and Bush administrations on Syria. He sits on the advisory board of American Refugee Committee and is a former U.S. Army Intelligence Sergeant serving in Afghanistan and Iraq and in Europe.

Smith told WND the true number of causalities will be higher.

The attacks came after President Assad was pictured for the first time in more than three months.

President Assad attended a graduation ceremony in the central city of Homs.

Earlier, Trump was filmed on a plane with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on his way to North Korea for a second meeting with Kim Jong Un.

The White House has suggested Trump may meet with Kim next month.

North Korea is scheduled to hold a meeting with South Korea on July 27 on the sidelines of the Olympic Winter Games.

President Trump called North Korea a “mess” and claims the rogue regime is “doing well” without the U.S. on the Korean Peninsula.

The statement on North Korea’s progress came after a phone call between Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
