Syria repositions air assets ahead of possible U.S. strikes -U.S. officials

WASHINGTON, April 11 (Reuters) - As President Donald Trump ramped up his threats of military action against Syria this week, the Syrian military has repositioned some air assets to avoid the fallout from potential missile strikes, U.S. officials told Reuters on Wednesday.

The officials declined further comment and it was not clear whether the Syrian moves would impact U.S. military planning for potential action against Syria over a suspected poison gas attack. (Reporting by Phil Stewart and Idrees Ali, editing by G Crosse)
