Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White says every site targeted in last night's air strikes in Syria was hit. In a  morning briefing, White remarked that the strikes were orchestrated to  minimize collateral damage.  She also said the attacks were justified,  legitimate, and proportionate in response to a chemical weapons attack  on a town outside Damascus.

Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie  said U.S., French, and British forces deployed dozens of missiles to hit  three chemical weapons facilities.  McKenzie said the size of the  strikes overwhelmed Syria's air defenses.  He called the strikes  precise, overwhelming, and effective, and set Syria's chemical weapons  program back for years.
