France, the United States and United Kingdom launched joint military action late on April 14, firing 105 missiles at the three sites in Syria. Shortly after the airstrikes began, President Donald Trump said all three sites were "associated" with the Syria's chemical weapon program.
Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White told reporters on Saturday the strikes "successfully hit every target." Russia, Syria's military backer, disagreed with that report, saying that Syrian air defense systems intercepted 71 out of 103 cruise missiles.
And although the Russians reported a number of Syrian military airfields, industrial sites and research facilities were hit, the Syrians said otherwise.
