The nearly two dozen Tomahawk missiles fired from the decks of the USS Higgins toward targets in Syria are seen lighting up the night sky in footage released Monday by the Department of Defense.

“We believe we degraded their ability to use chemical weapons to kill people,” State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert told ‘America’s Newsroom’ Monday.

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie said 105 missiles were launched by air and sea, all hitting their targets within minutes.

The strikes, in Douma, near Damascus, were launched in response to an April 7 chemical attack, the latest in country’s years-long civil war. The U.S. and European allies determined the Assad regime was behind the assault.
