U.S. says 59 missiles targeted aircraft, air defense systems

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military launched 59 Tomahawk missiles from two U.S. Navy destroyers on Thursday at a Syrian airfield and targets included aircraft and air defense systems, a Pentagon spokesman said.

“These missiles targeted aircraft, hardened aircraft shelters, petroleum and logistical storage areas, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems, and radars,” Pentagon Captain Jeff Davis spokesman told reporters.
