The United States has attacked a Syrian airbase with around 60 missiles overnight.

It's in response to this week's deadly chemical attack in Idlib which killed 80 people.

They were fired from warships in the Mediterranean - and targeted a government-controlled site.

The US has blamed President Assad for the chemical weapons attack - while the regime says it's the victim of American aggression.
