Watch: US Defence Dept. releases video of Syria strike launch

The US Department of Defence (DOD) has released video showing a tomahawk missile launching from a submarine, the USS John Warner. The launch was carried out in the Mediterranean as part of a "multi-national strike operation against the Syrian government" in response to a recent chemical weapons attack.

Also released was video of crews making final checks on a B-1 Bomber and a take-off from an undisclosed location to strike chemical weapons targets in Syria.

The US attacked chemical weapons facilities jointly with France and Britain to stop Syria's use of such weapons. The operation by the three allies came after a poison gas attack in Syria that killed at least 60 people last week.

The DOD said all targets were destroyed.
