(FOX NEWS) – 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.

The Pentagon said Saturday the U.S.-led allied missile strikes in Syria successfully hit all three targets and have “significantly crippled” Syrian President Bashar Assad’s ability to make more chemical weapons. The Higgins destroyer launched 23 missiles in all, the military added.

“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.
