Activist Alaa Al-Youssef told CNN the strike that killed the woman took place in a residential area.

The rebel-held Syrian town in the Idlib province was struck by a devastating chemical attack on Tuesday that killed more than 80 people and left hundreds wounded.

On Thursday night, President Donald Trump ordered the firing of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles into a west Syrian airfield believed to be the source of the deadly chemical attack.
