Friday night the United States and its allies took military action against Syria. 

The allied move was in response to last weekend's chemical weapons attack in the rebel-held town of Douma.

At least 40 civilians are believed to have been killed.

From the start, the US, the UK, and France, suspected the regime of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad was to blame.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said it's not just about regime change.

"It is about a limited and targeted strike...that does not further escalate tensions in the region," May said.

Demonstrators are gathering in a landmark square of the Syrian capital and waving Syrian, Russian and Iranian flags in a show of defiance.

The pentagon said it was still assessing the results of the strikes and would release details of the operation on saturday morning.
