Warships departed from Norfolk, Virginia, on Wednesday amid military threats by the United States against Syria.

The fleet included the German frigate the FGS Hessen, which will serve in support of maritime security operations.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump warned Russia of imminent military action in Syria over a suspected poison gas attack, declaring that missiles “will be coming” and lambasting Moscow for standing by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
