Syrian air defences respond to missile attack on two airbases

State-run news agency SANA reported air defenses had shot down some of the missiles targeting the base.

Syrian air defences have responded to a missile attack over Homs which targeted Shayrat air base late on Monday night, Syrian state television reported.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after the US, British, and French strikes in Syria his country will continue "to move against Iran in Syria".

Iranian news agencies also reported missiles being fired toward Shayrat.

Shayrat air base was targeted by US Tomahawk missiles in April previous year in a strike ordered by President Donald Trump in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhun in Idlib.

The tripartite Western aggression occurred days after the United States accused the Syrian government of an alleged attack with chemical weapons in the city of Duma, Eastern Ghouta region, an accusation rejected by the authorities of this country.
