"It is such a great Military term, it should be brought back", he wrote. A senior official in a regional alliance that backs Damascus told Reuters the sites that were targeted had been evacuated days ago after a warning from Russian Federation. But the Pentagon said the USA had "deconfliction" contacts with Russia before and after the strikes, that Syrian air defense systems had been largely ineffective, and there was no indication that Russian systems had been employed.
Russian Federation had promised to respond to any attack on its ally and said on Saturday that Syrian air defenses had intercepted 71 of the 105 missiles fired.
The Pentagon said Syria fired 40 surface-to-air missiles, but most were launched after the damage was done. While he declared success, the Pentagon said the pummeling of three chemical-related facilities left enough others intact to enable the Assad government to use banned weapons against civilians if it chooses.
Later Sunday, Trump sent a letter to congressional leaders informing them in writing of his decision to order the strike. Longer-term, she said, Trump had three ultimate objectives in Syria: to defeat the Islamic State group, to contain Iranian aggression and to halt the use of "mass chemical weapons".

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis called the strikes a "one-time shot", although Trump raised the prospect of further strikes if Assad's government used chemical weapons again. "This time our allies and we have struck harder".
Syria media reported that several of these strikes were intercepted, but Pentagon spokesperson Dana White dismissed these claims. In a US army motion a 12 months in the past in response to a sarin gasoline assault, the Pentagon mentioned missiles took out practically 20 p.c of the Syrian air drive.
In an announcement, Trump said the attack was underway in retaliation for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons on rebel-held areas of the country.

It seems Facebook knew about the security breach for years. "It's always been like this unfortunately", said Mr Hardy. Currently, there are many invasive mobile apps in circulation that put individuals' data at risk, noted Mr Hardy.
"We, of course, know our work in Syria is not done", U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on "Fox News Sunday". The NATO alliance gave its full backing; NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said in Brussels that the attack was about ensuring that chemical weapons can not be used with impunity. That did not mean military strikes would continue.
A former officer in Syria's chemical program, Adulsalam Abdulrazek, mentioned Saturday the joint U.S., British, and French strikes hit "components of however not the center" of this system. The truth is, Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Workers, mentioned no extra assaults had been deliberate.
Although the operation was secretly unfolding for hours before the first impact, the strike by 105 precision-guided missile on three Syrian chemical weapons targets lasted only minutes, officials said.
