Syrians opposed to the Damascus regime Friday lauded the U.S. airstrikes that destroyed an airfield believed to have been used by Assad’s forces to drop chemical bombs on Idlib earlier this week.
“I am so happy. People are happy. They have hope the U.S. can end this war by stopping the regime aircraft from more bombs,” 27-year-old aid worker in Idlib, Ali Essa, told Fox News. “We wish for the peace.”
For Essa, this was symbolic.
“This airbase killed many of our friends and neighbors,” he said.
