Two thirds of South Dakota's congressional delegation responded, late Friday evening, to the United States' attack on Syria.

The attack was directed against Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, after it was found that the Syrian regime used chemical weapons on its civilians. Three targets were the center of the attack in the Syrian capitol of Damascus. 

The attack was coordinated with France and the United Kingdom.

Sen. Mike Rounds via Twitter, said that President Trump sent a strong message that the U.S. and allies "will not tolerate barbaric and inhumane chemical attacks on innocent victims."

@SenatorRounds

Tonight, the president sent a strong message that the U.S. and our allies, as leaders of the civilized world, will not tolerate barbaric and inhumane chemical attacks on innocent victims. Keeping our brave men and women in uniform in our prayers.

Rep. Kristi Noem tweeted her support for President Trump's decision. She did question the long-term approach to the country, but praised the swift response.

@RepKristiNoem

I support President Trump's decisive action in Syria today, which asserted the strength of America's B-1 fleet. Questions remain about our long-term approach to Syria, but that shouldn't minimize the necessity of tonight's swift and commensurate response.

Sen. John Thune posted that the Assad and his enablers need to know that the use chemical weapons will not be tolerated.
