Pentagon on Syria strikes: ‘We successfully hit every target’

Washington (United States) (AFP) – The Pentagon said Saturday that a joint US-British-French operation against Syria’s regime had “successfully hit every target,” countering assertions from Russia that dozens of missiles were intercepted.

“We do not seek conflict in Syria, but we cannot allow such grievous violations of international law,” Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White told reporters.

“We successfully hit every target,” she said. “The strikes were justified, legitimate and proportionate.”
