Syrian air defense systems were activated in response to a missile attack targeting the Shayrat Airbase in Homs province, and, according to state media, managed to take down all the incoming projectiles.
In further details, Sputnik reported that up to 10 missiles were destroyed by the Syrian Armed Forces. Meanwhile, Syria's official news agency SANA added that the Syrian air defenses managed to intercept some of the projectiles.
Relatively, the Pentagon denied initiating strikes or conducting any other military activity in Homs province.
"There is no US military activity in that area at this time," the Pentagon's spokesperson told Reuters.
The raid in Homs countryside reportedly coincided with another missile attack against a military airbase near Damascus. According to various Arabic media channels, three missiles targeted Al Dumayr airport, but they were all downed by the Syrian air defenses.
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 reported, citing a military source.
