Syria Says False Alarm Set off Air Defense Overnight
Local Editor

Syrian state news agency SANA reported that a false alarm of an airspace violation triggered the launch of air defense sirens and several interceptor missiles in the early hours of Tuesday, but there was no external attack on Syria.

Earlier in the day, the Syrian media reported that the country's armed forces repelled a missile attack on the Shayrat air base in the Homs province.

Meanwhile, a Pentagon spokesman said that the United States was not conducting military activity in the area.

Following the reports, a UK Defense Ministry spokeswoman also said that the UK was not conducting any military operations in Syria on the night of Tuesday.

Last Saturday, the United States, France, and the United Kingdom launched strikes on a number of targets in Syria in response to an alleged chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the three countries fired over 100 cruise and air-to-surface missiles, most of which were shot down by Syrian air defenses.

The attack came the same day that the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons [OPCW] mission was set to start the probe into the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, which the West had immediately blamed on Damascus.

Following the accusations, the Syrian government strongly denied being behind the alleged attack and expressing that the missile strike was "brutal aggression."
