Syrian forces said to leave bases ahead of possible US strikes

Pro-government forces in Syria are clearing military bases and airfields ahead of possible US airstrikes, a monitor says.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the evacuations are taking place at major military bases and airfields in territory controlled by the Assad regime.

The report from the group comes as US President Donald Trump threatens to launch “nice and new and ‘smart!’” missiles at Syria in response to an alleged chemical attack by the Syrian regime.
