The Pentagon has released video footage of two U.S. destroyers launching missiles at an airfield in Syria.

WATCH:

The videos show several Tomahawk missiles launching from the decks of the USS Ross and the USS Porter. Approximately 60 missiles, each carrying a 1,000-pound warhead, were launched at the al-Shayrat airfield.

Trump ordered the strikes in response to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s sarin gas attack on a city in the country’s northwestern Idlib province Tuesday. Aircraft from the airfield are believed to be responsible for the attack.
