The UK's defence secretary has said the strikes the US, UK, and France launched on Syria on Friday night have been a "highly successful mission."

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Gavin Williamson said four RAF tornados took part in strikes on targets in Syria, according to The Guardian.

A statement from Russia's defense ministry said that "more than 100 cruise missiles and air-to-land missiles were fired by the US, Britain, and France from the sea and air at Syrian military and civilian targets."

The missiles appear to have struck the capital city, Damascus.

The US confirmed at a press conference that one of the intended targets was a scientific research center in Damascus.
