The targets of that strike included Syrian aircraft, aircraft shelters, petroleum and logistical storage facilities, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems and radar.
The army said almost 110 missiles hit targets in the capital Damascus and other areas, and air defence systems brought a lot of them down.
The strikes were launched in a joint effort by France, the United Kingdom and the U.S.in response to a suspected chemical attack ordered by Syrian President Bashar Assad on civilians that killed dozens of people.

Mrs May said "every possible diplomatic channel" had been explored before authorising the strikes, adding that it was not a decision she had taken lightly. Moscow also said it was calling an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council, where it is a permanent member, to discuss the "aggressive actions" of the U.S. and its allies.
