The imminent arrival of the chemical weapons inspectors came as rebels in Douma surrendered their weapons and left the town for opposition-held areas in the north. Russia's military said Thursday that Douma was now under full control of the Syrian government after a Russian-mediated deal secured the evacuation of the rebels and thousands of civilians after it was recaptured by Syrian forces. Last year's strike involved 59 missiles. However, Syrian air defense systems intercepted the majority of the attempted strikes, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.
Later state TV broadcasts also show the fragments of an apparent British missile as well as debris from the attack.
When did it take place?
Syrian President Bashar Assad on Saturday responded to overnight Western airstrikes, vowing that they would only make him more determined to crush his enemies.
The assault was twice the size and hit two more targets than a strike Trump ordered previous year against a Syrian military airfield.
It targeted chemical weapons stores, including storage facilities for sarin gas, and was "double" the strikes the U.S. carried out in Syria in April 2017 in response to an earlier chemical attack by Assad, U.S. officials said Friday.
Syria has denied using chemical weapons. Indeed, Israel launched an airstrike against the Syrian government earlier this week.
British PM Theresa May also supported the US-led air strikes on Syria by calling them a "clear message" against the use of chemical weapons.
Washington described its targets as a centre near Damascus for the research, development, production and testing of chemical and biological weapons, a chemical weapons storage site near the city of Homs and another site near Homs that stored chemical weapons equipment and housed a command post.
He says that government air defenses shot down many rockets and that only one target was hit at the government "Scientific Research Center".
In a statement released early Saturday morning, Putin denounced the strikes as an "act of aggression" that would have a "destructive influence on the entire system of worldwide relations".
Senator Marco Rubio applauded the strikes for preventing hostile regimes like Syria's Assad regime from using chemical weapons and other weapons of mass destruction.
The intervention is the biggest by Western powers against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country's seven-yearcivil war and pitted the U.S. and its allies against Russian Federation. Russia's US embassy released a statement warning that the airstrikes will "not be left without consequences".
They "are responsible for the regional consequences of this adventurist action", it said, condemning a "clear violation of worldwide rules and laws".
