Babylon Reports – Strikes hit Syrian airbase, Israel targets Hamas in Gaza, Wrestlemania 34
Written by Gabrielle Renaud on 2018-04-09
Several people have died or were hurt after a Syrian military airport was hit by missiles, state media said, amid international alarm over a suspected chemical attack on the rebel-held town of Douma. Monday’s attack hit the Tiyas airbase, known as T4, near the city of Homs. The Syrian government initially said the West was involved as the US and France threatened to respond to the alleged chemical attack, but both deny striking the base.
Meanwhile, Israeli fighter jets targeted a Hamas “military target” in northern Gaza Monday in response to Palestinians crossing the border and allegedly laying bombs. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties from Gaza. The Israeli strike came a day after suspects crossed the northern Gaza border fence, which has become the backdrop of mass Gaza demonstrations that lead to deadly clashes.
Lastly, let’s talk about WrestleMania 34 which was held yesterday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. This year’s event featured not one but two former UFC champions, including Ronda Rousey, who took on WWE’s owner’s daughter, Stephanie McMahon in the ring. Other matches included the Undertaker making his return to defeat John Cena in the ring again.
