5:32 am
facilities that stirred chemical weapons there official claims seven people were killed in the missle strike. lets get right to bill anderson with the latest developments on all this, bill >> reporter: some people are still just waking up and finding out that the president trump made good on a promised response to syrian chemical attacks. we know that 60 tomahawk missiles, 59 specifically were launched from u.s. warships hitting air base in central syria. the attack targeted base that housed war planes used to initiate chemical attack on syrian civilians including dozens of women and children. it was images of those children that led president trump to acknowledge seeing effects of chemical effect of chemical weapons has changed him. the missle strikes appear to be first steps toward re enforcing that message. now there is noteworthy that the strikes took place shortly after president trump hosted chinese president xi jinping, an alley of syria and they met at his private club, but
5:33 am
regardless of his presence, or mr. trump's previous opposition to military intervention in syria, he said that the chemical attacks required a response. karen, as you pointed out there are reports from syrian officials that the air strikes led to at least seven casualties. so far they are not confirmed by u.s. officials but continue up to date you as additional statements are released throughout the morning. >> thank you for. that we will get to washington we have team coverage on this one because leaders around the world are reacting and this is first major military move for our than the, lets get to doug luzader right now with the reaction there, very interesting, big shift in a big action by our president, what are people saying, doug. >> reporter: good morning. first of all, it is a surprise coming from trump, this is a guy who campaigned on america first about trying to avoid foreign involvement and we are entangled to some degree in what is going on in syria which is extremely complicated
5:34 am
but it is tough to under estimate the impact of those image from his that chemical attack. he seemed moved by them and ultimately moved to take action. now this was a very limited air strike. we don't know if there is more to come, if is there there will be more pressure on members of the congress here in washington to allow them to weigh in on this to come up with a coordinated strategy but that is big question this morning is what is next? was this a one or done or does this reflect a major change in u.s. policy toward syria. >> such a huge pivot, very interesting to go watch it un felting where he was talking about syria because earlier he had banned refugees from syria from coming to this country and now when he sees those images this major shift and this action what are some of the people in washington saying. >> reporter: way he framed this last night was saying this was part of a vital u.s. national security interests to go after this facility and send a message.
5:35 am
it certainly does raise questions again about what is next and is this really a change in u.s. policy. will the president change his stance on refugees, coming in from syria? he talk about additional vet ting procedures but will this ultimately change that. we just don't know at this point. >> of course, we have supreme court nominee happening later today. we will check back with you all morning long. thank you. we appreciate it. we will have continuing coverage on everything that is happening with syria, gorsuch, and also we will tell but something new coming out, there was some video we will get to in a moment of tlc. they have a new album out. lets tell but a situation in new jersey, fire fighters there injured, after going to a house fire, in south brunswick, police say fire fighter fell through the first floor into the basement of a home. this is on georges road. there were other fire fighters you can clearly see them there , rescued them, fire was burning, we know two pets died in the fire and police say there was an electrical short to blame.
