Pentagon says strikes on Syria hit every target

Syria’s capital has been rocked by loud explosions that lit up the sky with heavy smoke as U.S. President Donald Trump announce

After the U.S., France and United Kingdom hit Syria with airstrikes late Friday night in response to a chemical weapons attack ordered by al-Assad against civilians, Pentagon Chief Spokesperson Dana W. White said Russian Federation has already started to beef up its misinformation game on social media. Syria's capital has been rocked by loud explosions that lit up the sky with heavy smoke as U.S. President Donald Trump announced airstrikes in retaliation for the country's alleged use of chemical weapons. Calling the three-nation attacks an "act of aggression" against Syria, Russia has even issued a statement suggesting that retaliatory steps will be taken. "A significant body of information including intelligence indicates the Syrian regime is responsible for this latest attack and we know that the Syrian regime has a track record of using chemical weapons against its own people", said Karen Pierce, UK Ambassador to UN.

The Pentagon also says none of the missiles filed by the US and its allies was deflected by Syrian air defenses, rebutting claims by the Russian and Syrian governments.

An alleged gas attack last weekend in the town of Douma killed more than 40 people, according to opposition activists and rescuers.

President Donald Trump "enforces" the red line and the U.S. will sustain the pressure on the war-torn nation, she said.

I just want to tell Mr. Trump directly: I'm a Syrian refugee who survived chemical weapons attacks, who lived under two years of siege and bombardment by the government.

"We will ensure they can work professionally, objectively, impartially and free of any pressure", he said.

Russian Federation also decried the US -led operation as a failure, saying the majority of the rockets fired at Syria were intercepted by the Syrian government's air defense systems.

"And should he use it again, the president has made it very clear that the United States is locked and loaded and ready to go".

The Trump administration offered veiled threats on Saturday about future military action and mixed remarks about the degree to which it believed sarin was used by Syria's government, which denies it used chemical weapons.

The move signalled the West's resolve to return to diplomacy after a one-night military operation that hit sites Western officials said were linked to Syria's chemical weapons program.

Asked if this meant Mr Assad could carry on using barrel bombs and other means in the war provided he did not use chemical weapons, Mr Johnson said that was the "unhappy" effect.

Syria called the devastating strike a "violation of global law" while Mr Putin denounced the act "with the utmost firmness".

The attack was aimed at taking out Syria's chemical weapons facilities, though the strikes were limited and reports have already suggested they may have had a minimal impact on Syria's capability.

Negotiations on the proposals are due to start on Monday, a day after a delegation from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons were due to arrive in Douma.

Syria condemned the attack as a "flagrant violation of the global law", according to Syria's official SANA news agency.
