U.S. Considering Striking 8 Possible Targets In Syria Following Attack

The U.S. is looking to strike eight potential targets in Syria, following the alleged chemical attack in Douma.
A report by CNBC Thursday, states the targets include two Syrian airfields, a research center, and a chemical weapons facility.
The report also said Syria’s military has relocated some of its planes to Russian controlled airfields in hopes of dodging the strikes.
Meanwhile, U.S. officials say blood and urine samples from victims of the attack have tested positive for traces of chemical gas.

Intelligence from the U.S. and other countries help them determine the findings, and indicate the Syrian government was behind the alleged attack.
Meanwhile, the Syrian government said it will allow international investigators full access to the site of the alleged chemical attack in Douma.
Syria’s UN Envoy said the government has issued its first travel document to representatives of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
He said the investigators will be able to arrive in Douma, and conduct comprehensive research to determine whether chemical weapons were used.
This comes ahead of another emergency Un Security Council meeting Thursday, called by China’s ally Bolivia who is seeking to prevent U.S. and British air strikes against Syria
