 US Defense Department shows launch of cruise missile targeting Syrian government’s chemical weapons facilities. VIDEO

The US Department of Defense showed footage of the launch of the Tomahawk cruise missile from USS John Warner submarine based in the Mediterranean on April 14, 2018.

As reported by Censor.NET citing tweet by the Pentagon, the land attack missile was launched as part of a multi-national strike operation against the Syrian government.

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.
