Posted July 11, 2019 12:08:51 While sailing to the Gulf of Mexico, the USS “Arizona” was hit by a small explosion.
No one was injured.
The Navy has released video of the moment the explosion occurred, showing the deck, and its crew.
The USS Arizona (LHD-3) was attacked by a minor explosion off the coast of Estes Park, Florida, on July 10, 2019.
It was the second ship to be attacked by an explosive device off the Florida coast this year.
The attack on the Arizona came in response to a chemical attack by the Syrian regime.
The attack has killed over 1,400 civilians and wounded more than 10,000 others, according to Human Rights Watch.
The USS “Avalon” was damaged in the attack.
On Friday, President Donald Trump said that he would launch an investigation into the attack and the possible use of chemical weapons.
“If the United States of America does not act now to stop the use of this chemical weapons by the Assad regime, the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent people will be forever lost,” he said in a statement.
