The United States says that it surpassed and evaded Syrian airforce overnight to hit every goal in the heart of Syria's chemical weapons program in a multitude of attacks by the air and the sea together with British and French allies.
Although the operation was secretly unfolded for hours before the first impact on Saturday, it took only minutes from the first to the last detonation of 105 precision-controlled missile attacks on three Syrian chemical weapons targets, officials said.
Marine Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie, Director of the Joint Staff, rejected allegations from Russia and Syria that the score of the Western missiles was shot down.
He said that Russian airforces did not burn while Syrian air forces were completely ineffective of a multi-attack attack involving not only US, British and French aircraft but also US naval destroyers, a cruiser, a French frigate, and even a submarine.
The Syrian Air Defense is not only wrong with the incoming missiles, but they were shot even after the last US, British and French strikes were complete. Some of the more than 40 Syrian missile interceptors he suggested could have hit civilian targets.
"When you shoot iron into the sky without guidance, it will inevitably fall to the ground," said McKenzie to reporters.
Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White warned that Russia was actively trying to create confusion over the attack.
"The Russian disinformation campaign has already begun. There has been a 2000 percent increase in Russian trolls in the last 24 hours," White said.  The primary objective of the operation was the Barza Research and Development Center in the Greater Damascus area, as McKenzie noted was "one of the world's most defensive aviation areas".
Barza burned the fire with 57 Tomahawk cross missiles and 19 Joint Air for Surface Stand-off missiles.
Although some of Syria's chemical weapons infrastructure was still, "I think we've gotten a serious blow to them," said McKenzie and added that it would put progr's back for years.
Despite serious damage to the strike infrastructure, McKenzie said that the Pentagon would not rule out that the Assad government still had the ability to use such weapons again.
"There is still a residual element of Syrian programs out there," he said. "I do not want to say they will be able to continue to carry out a chemical attack in the future. I suppose they'll think long and hard about it."
