President Trump has shown that he means business. No lines in the sand to ignore for this government.

On Saturday the Pentagon said the U.S. led allied missile strikes in Syria has successfully hit all three targets.

The strikes have “significantly crippled” Syrian President Bashar Assad’s ability to make more chemical weapons.

Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie, director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at the Pentagon after the overnight bombing said, “I think we dealt them a severe blow. We’ve attacked the heart of the Syrians’ chemical weapons program.”

The targets that were identified were Barzah Research and Development, the Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Site and the Him Shinshar Bunker Facility. Also mentioned was that 105 missiles were launched by air and sea.

In response to evidence that the Assad regime killed civilians in an April 7th chemical attack, the latest in country’s years-long civil war, the strikes were launched in Douma, near Damascus.

On Saturday President Donald Trump confirmed the airstrikes and thanked U.S. allies France and Britain for joining in the campaign.

Trump tweeted:

Following the U.S. led strikes, McKenzie, a Marine Corps general, said he has no reports of civilian casualties.

The attacks overnight Friday were launched from U.S., France and United Kingdom aircraft and ships, including those in the Red Sea and eastern Mediterranean Sea.

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said on Saturday, “It’s intolerable for a civilized nation to use chemical weapons. This is a regime that murders its people daily.”

White also said the United States is “very confident” that the Assad regime was behind the chemical weapons attack on civilians.

The Pentagon official made clear that the allied forces’ attack was not met with resistance.
