US Launches Missiles Against ISIS Over Fears of Attack

The Effects of a Cruise Missile on an ISIS Barracks in Raqqa, Syria

The US has targeted an Al Qaeda-linked terrorist group in Syria with cruise missiles, killing at least 20 ISIS members.  Khorasan, a small terrorist organization affiliated with both ISIS and Al Qaeda, was reportedly nearing the “execution phase” of a planned terrorist attack using toothpaste tube bombs on planes.

The strikes were unrelated to other air strikes that took place in Syria on the same day.  Those strikes were a joint effort between the US and five Arab nations –  the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Jordan, and Qatar.  14 strategic ISIS targets were attacked by jets, with several of the targets near Raqqa, Syria, an ISIS stronghold where Western hostages are thought to be held.
