Syria: Air Defenses Intercept Missiles near Homs
Local Editor

Syrian air defense systems repelled a missile attack on an airport near the western city of Homs, less than a day after US-led coalition jets targeted several Syrian military positions in the country's eastern Deir Ez-Zor province.

Homs

"One of our military airports in the central region was exposed to a hostile missile attack, and our air defense systems confronted the attack and prevented it from achieving its aim," according to Syria's official news agency, SANA.

The news agency had earlier said that sounds of explosions were heard near Dabaa airport, which lies about 20 kilometers southwest of Homs near the Lebanese border.

However, there were no immediate reports of possible casualties.

Meanwhile, AFP quoted a source close to the Lebanese-Syrian border as saying that warplanes had flown over Lebanese airspace and "some people are still expecting new strikes".

Earlier in the day, SANA reported that a number of Syrian military positions between Albu Kamal and Hmeimeh were hit "in an aggression by American coalition warplanes."

When asked about the Thursday night attack, Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Kone Faulkner claimed the strike was not carried out by US forces.

The attacks come amid reports of the full liberation of neighborhoods south of the Syrian capital Damascus from the clutches of the Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group].

Syrian army troops and pro-government fighters had been fighting since April 19 to recapture the area covering Yarmouk camp and the adjacent districts of Qadam, Tadamun and al-Hajar al-Aswad.
