Missiles shot down over Syria airbases

Syrian Air Defenses Target Missiles Over Homs, Damascus - Syrian TV

Pro-Syrian regime outlets and social-media accounts had reported that air defences had foiled a missile attack on Shayrat air base near Homs, the same location that was targeted in U.S. missile strikes previous year.

Three missiles were targeting Dumayr airbase in Damascus countryside, the Syrian television said, quoting a military sourcing as confirming that all three missiles were shot down.

Syrian air defense systems have been activated in response to a missile attack apparently targeting Shayrat Airbase in Homs province, state media SANA reports.

According to yet unconfirmed reports, the missiles entered Syrian airspace from Lebanon, which may indicate that the Israeli Air Force could have been involved, Al-Masdar News reports, citing a military source.

"There was no external attack on Syria", a military source said.

For its part, the Pentagon denied involvement in the strike.

"There are no USA or Coalition operations in that area [Homs]".

Hezbollah and other Iranian-backed militias have a large military presence in Syria and are well entrenched in central and eastern areas near the Iraqi border. "We don't have anything additional to provide".

Saturday's US-led strikes were in retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack by the Syrian military in eastern Ghouta.

"There is no U.S. military activity in that area at this time", Eric Pahond, a Pentagon spokesman said when asked about the strike on Tuesday.

Experts from the global chemical weapons watchdog are in Syria and are now expected to visit that site in the town of Douma Wednesday.

Protection Secretary Mattis claimed that no followup attacks were planned and the Pentagon was careful to ensure the safety of Russian troops and Syrian civilians inside the area.
