On the campaign trail, President Trump promised that he would “take out the families” of suspected terrorists. We now know that he was deadly serious.
Earlier today, the United States air force launched a unilateral airstrike against the Umar ibn Al-Khaṭṭāb mosque in Aleppo, Syria during the evening prayers, which killed at least 57 and possibly as many as 70 people, wounding around a hundred worshippers. The mosque was completely destroyed; rescuers are still trying to dig people out.
POLITICO and New York Times contributor Samuel Oakford has the confirmation.
