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


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.
