The US launched Tomahawk missiles at Syria on Friday night, as part of a coordinated strike with the UK and France.

Alongside the Tomahawks were Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile – Extended Range, or JASSM-ER, used for the first time in combat. British Tornado fighter jets launched Storm Shadow missiles, as well.

The Pentagon confirmed Saturday morning that 105 weapons were used in total.

The US deployed B-1B Lancer long-range bombers, and launched Tomahawk missiles from three US destroyers – the USS Monterey, USS Laboon, and USS Higgins. Tomahawk missiles were alsolaunched from the USS John Warner, a Virginia-class attack submarine.
