The U.S, U.K and France have fired missiles to Syria In Douma in response to the chemical attack caused by Assad Regime. The U.S launched more than 105 Missiles and hit all three targets successfully.
Defense Secretary James Mattis said, “a little more than a double” Weapons were used compared to last year 2017 in which only 59 Tomahawk Missiles were involved.
“We were very precise and proportionate, but at the same time it was a heavy strike,” Mattis said.
President Trump thanked the allies in his tweet:
“A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!”
According to a Defense Department, the attack involved munitions fired from naval vessels and aircraft’s which included 100 tomahawk cruise missiles.
Satellite Images of the before and after were shared by ISI Image Sat International with Fox News. The photo taken Saturday shows the main buildings destroyed.
The Left image was taken in August 2013, and the right image was taken Saturday after the missiles.
The U.S has been distressed hoping that Russian soldiers were safe. Days before the Missiles were fired, The US military claimed they would notify Russian counterparts of possible target before a strike. In last year’s airstrikes, Russia was given an advanced warning. This year the U.S did not communicate with Russia about the strikes on Syria. Russia has bases and soldiers in Syria. The miscommunication and injury of any soldiers may lead to a conflict between Russia and the US.
