"Mission Accomplished" he remarked, as it was announced all United States missiles hit three targets that were involved in the production, development and storage of chemical weapons.
He saidFrance has "no doubt" that the Syrian government was behind a suspected chemical attacks last weekend. The General Command claimed that the "Syrian Air Defense systems confronted, with high competence, the missiles of the aggression and shot down majority".
"It is a limited and targeted strike that does not further escalate tensions in the region and that does everything possible to prevent civilian casualties". It famously was on a backdrop banner when President George W. Bush stood on the deck of an aircraft carrier in May 2003 and prematurely declared victory in Iraq.
But the war dragged on for many years after that and the banner became a symbol of USA misjudgments and mistakes in the long and costly conflict.
Syrian air defences responded to the attack by the U.S., France and the United Kingdom and hit several incoming missiles, state-run Syrian media said.
Behind closed doors, Trump pushed for a more aggressive response than the one taken past year, wanting options that would involve attacks on targets in Syria associated with Russian Federation and Iran, officials said.
The US, Britain and France carried out a wave of pre-dawn strikes against the Syrian regime today in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack.
Nato Secretary General Jen Stoltenberg said in a statement he backed the US, UK and France in their action "against the Syrian regime's chemical weapons facilities and capabilities".
As recently as last week, Trump had been saying that he wanted the U.S.to withdraw its forces from Syria. The Trump administration has never articulated its strategy or goal in Syria beyond fighting Islamic State militants and calling for political negotiations to replace Assad.
Trump took to Twitter and thanked his allies in the attack as well.
Only three countries - Russia, China and Bolivia - voted in favour of the resolution at the end of an emergency meeting of the 15-member council called by Russia on Saturday. We hit the sites, the heart of the chemical weapons program. "And Russia will give Syria the S300 defense system, a big blow to Israel which the USA does not expect to see", added Danura.
In Syria, government supporters appeared relieved that the airstrikes were not more extensive.
