The Pentagon says that missile strikes by the United States, Britain and France hit all the targets in Syria. This was stated during a briefing by General Kenneth McKenzie, reports BBC.

He confirmed the information on three main targets, noting that they were successfully hit.

According to him, the objects were chosen cautiously in order to avoid civilian casualties.

The Pentagon also called Syria's "air defense" ineffective.

"We believe that Syria's attempts to defend itself were largely ineffective, and obviously carried a risk to people's lives," he said.

According to the Pentagon, 76 missiles hit the target near Damascus, 22 more rockets were fired at a warehouse west of Homs.

As reported, the armed forces of the United States, Britain and France on April 14 inflicted air strikes on a number of facilities in Syria related to the development and use of chemical weapons. The media report about at least three victims.

Airstrikes became the response to the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian Douma, killing 70 people. The West blamed Bashar Assad, as well as Russia.

A number of countries have already supported the actions of the US and its allies. In turn, Russia stated that it convenes an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.
