A Syrian refugee who survived a 2013 chemical weapons attack thanked President Trump this week for striking Bashar al-Assad’s brutal regime; adding that the “bad days” of Obama’s “inaction are over.”
Kassem Eid praised the President’s harsh response to last weekend’s deadly chemical attack during an interview with Fox News; saying the President had a “big heart” after he struck Assad’s regime following the death of at least 40 civilians near Damascus.

“U.S. strikes against Assad meant the world to us, because it showed us that the United States actually cares and the bad days of Obama’s inaction are over, hopefully forever,” Eid said.
“We wish that President Trump will double down on his action and go and bomb ‘Animal Assad’ back to the zoo,” he added.

BOILING POINT: Syria Threatens ISRAEL with ‘Surprise’ Attacks
Bashar al-Assad’s brutal regime issued a direct threat to Israel on Tuesday, warning the region’s only democracy of “more surprises” should their air force continue to operate over Syrian territory, reports Reuters.
The threat comes just days after the Syrian military -armed with equipment from Iran- shot down an Israel F16 fighter jet; prompting a fierce response from the Israeli military which immediately destroyed the anti-air battery.
“Have full confidence the aggressor will be greatly surprised because it thought this war – this war of attrition Syria has been exposed to for years – had made it incapable of confronting attacks,” said Assistant Foreign Minister Ayman Sussan.
“God willing, they will see more surprises whenever they try to attack Syria,” he added.
Syria’s direct threat follows Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s tough talk towards both the Iranian and Syrian regime; saying, “We will continue to harm anyone who tries to harm us. This was our policy and this will remain our policy.”
STRIKES ON SYRIA: Trump Unleashes US MILITARY on Assad’s 'Chemical Program'
President Trump announced to the world Friday evening his administration was commencing a “strategic” military campaign aimed at destroying Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s chemical weapons capability.
The Commander-in-Chief’s decision comes just days after Assad used deadly chemical weapons on civilians outside Damascus; killing at least forty individuals and injuring 500 including women and children.
“We have launched strategic strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now under way. We thank them both,” said Trump.
“Last Saturday, the Assad regime again deployed chemical weapons to slaughter innocent civilians,” he added. “This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very terrible regime.”
