Video released by the Department of Defense Thursday night shows cruise missiles being launched from a U.S. Navy ship toward Syria.

The video shows guided-missile destroyer U.S.S. Ross conducting strike operations while in the Mediterranean Sea.

The missile strikes targeted a Syrian air base in retaliation for a gruesome chemical weapons attack against civilians earlier this week.
