"Satellite photos show Assad's chemical weapons factories and bunkers obliterated by coalition missile barrage despite Russia and Syria threats"
+Satellite imagery taken before and after the airstrikes on Saturday show buildings in Syria reduced to rubble
+The sites included bunkers, storage facilities, and the Shinshar Chemical Weapons Facility
+Another main target was the massive Barzah research facility in northern Damascus, which was hit by multiple missiles
+Pentagon officials said the airstrikes were 'precise, overwhelming and effective' at a briefing on Saturday.
The Syrians say some targeted sites didn't receive any damage. Satellite images given to CNN appear to show the contrary -- extensive damage.
New satellite imagery shows extensive damage to targets hit by Saturday's US-led airstrikes in Syria, where military sites were reduced to rubble as the US, UK, and France responded to a chemical attack by the Assad regime which killed 75 people.
White House spokesperson White said: "Our goal has not changed. Our goal in Syria is to defeat ISIS....but Assad's actions were beyond the pale. We do not seek additional conflict in Syria but we cannot allow such grievous violations of international law".
Scores of fast jets, fighters and naval destroyers fired more than 100 missiles at military targets in Syria on Friday night in retaliation for President Assad's chemical weapons attack on the rebel enclave of Douma on April 7.
The largest target in the airstrikes was the Barzah Research and Development Center which was considered to be the 'heart' of the regime's chemical weapons program.
The Tomahawks were fired from US warships while aircraft fired additional missiles.
France deployed its Mirage and Dassault Rafale jets and reportedly used frigate warships as well in the missile barrage. Britain is believed to have fired missiles from its Torpedoes and Typhoon aircraft.
