The 7-year-old girl who rose to fame on Twitter as the “voice of Aleppo” is speaking out once again — this time, about President Donald Trump’s decision to order U.S. missile strikes on a Syrian air base.

Syrian refugee Bana Alabed took to Twitter just hours after the U.S. launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles, to pledge her support.

“I am a Syrian child who suffered under Bashar al Asad & Putin,” Alabed wrote early Friday morning. “I welcome Donald Trump action against the killers of my people.”

The tweet was shared by more than 1,500 people, and the little girl didn’t stop there.

“Putin and Bashar al Asad bombed my school, killed my friends & robbed my childhood. It’s time to punish the killers of children in Syria,” she continued. “We don’t want WORLD WAR THREE. we don’t want the war in Syria. let’s stand together & end all wars.”

Alabed’s tweets last year from rebel-held eastern Aleppo in Syria captivated people around the world, and she quickly became a social media sensation. Alabed, with help from her mother, Fatemah, had been documenting her life in the besieged city. 

N. Korea didn’t test a nuclear weapon, but it did try to launch another missile

  N. Korea didn’t test a nuclear weapon, but it did try to launch another missile The day after its grand military review, North Korea failed in a bid to launch a missile from its east coast, the U.S. military says.North Korean residents have been preparing for their most important holiday: the 105th birth anniversary of Kim Il Sung, the country's late founder and grandfather of current ruler Kim Jong Un. He was born on April 15, 1912 and was the Supreme Leader of North Korea for 46 years – since its inception in 1948 until he passed away in 1994. We take a look at some of the events leading up to the the big celebration and the celebration itself.

Syrian girl : The world doesn't do anything. Bana Alabed, a young Syrian refugee who now lives in Turkey, tweeted out her feelings a few hours after the missile attack began. In a series of tweets early Friday, Bana slammed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Russian President Vladimir Putin

Russia and Iran sharply criticized U.S. missile strikes on a Syrian airfield on Thursday night, while European countries have been broadly supportive so far. Israel fully supports President Trump’s decision and hopes that this message of resolve in the face of the Assad regime’s horrific actions will

“They’re killing children, and we don’t want to die,” said Alabed in Dec. 2016 before fleeing to Turkey with her family.

Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, called their internet posts a “game” and “propaganda” and some claimed the account was somehow a fake.

“They want to blind the truth and not show the world what happened,” Fatemah told CBS News.

The 7-year-old’s Twitter account has now grown to more than 364,000 followers.                                              

Alabed has frequently pleaded the U.S. and other world leaders for help. She sent a letter to Mr. Trump in late January, days before his inauguration, imploring him to help the young victims of the war in her homeland. 

The Latest: Tillerson calls Russia reaction 'disappointing'

  The Latest: Tillerson calls Russia reaction 'disappointing' Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says Russia's response to the U.S. attack on Syria shows it continues to support Syrian President Bashar Assad.4:45 p.m.

Syrian girl , 7 , tweets support for Donald Trump’s missile strikes http Great work James – ridicule is as good a weapon as there is to help shine the light of truth on these events. I opened up a twitter account for, amongst other reasons, the purpose of spreading information like this.

American allies have praised the United States for launching airstrikes against Syria military targets. Trump said he ordered the strikes to answer attacks against innocent civilians with “a deadly nerve agent.” President Donald Trump speaks after the U.S. fired a barrage of cruise missiles into Syria

“They are suffering because of adult people... so can you please save the children and save the people of Syria?” she asked in the letter. 

In the letter, which Alabed sent from Turkey, she called her former hometown “a city of death” and told Mr. Trump he “must do something for the children of Syria because they are like your children and deserve peace like you.”

So it’s no surprise the young Syrian girl decided to speak out again after Assad’s regime launched a chemical weapons attack on Tuesday, killing more than 80 civilians.

“The people of Syria don’t want condemnation, they want to be saved. Condemnation doesn’t save lives but actions do. #EndSyriaWar now,” Alabed said a day after the deadly attack.
