Syrian air defenses repel strike on Shayrat air base in Homs - SANA

Syrian air defenses repel strike on Shayrat air base in Homs - SANA

Big explosions were heard near Al Shayrat Air base in Homs province, and in eastern Qalamoun near Damascus where two other air bases are located, the Syrian Observatory for Human rights reported.

Asked about the missile attack, an Israeli military spokesman told Reuters, "We don't comment on such reports".

The United States, Britain, and France launched more than 100 missiles in Syria on April 14, targeting three alleged chemical weapons facilities in an operation that Syria and its key ally, Russia, denounced as aggression on a sovereign state.

Also a number of local reporters have said there are "Israeli warplanes" flying at high-altitude carrying out the attack after crossing the borders through Lebanon.

The raid in Homs countryside reportedly coincided with another missile attack against a military airbase near Damascus.

However, Mr Beattie told Sunrise that the reason for leaving the athletes out was based on the competitors' welfare. They made decisions not to have athletes enter the stadium.

It is now unclear what the airstrike was targeting.

Syrian state news organizations claimed that the missiles, which targeted Shayrat air base, were shot down by air defenses but did not identify who fired them, Reuters reported.

Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said missiles did not hit any of the air bases. Social media reports are pointing the finger at Israel for the strikes.

Defense Secretary Mattis said at the time that no follow-up attacks were planned and that the Pentagon was careful to ensure the safety of Russian troops and Syrian civilians in the area.
