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.

West Brom had lost eight of their previous nine games and last won on January 13. Everything was complicated, players they didn't want to play simple.

Reuters cited Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon as saying that "there is no US military activity in that area at this time". Social media reports are pointing the finger at Israel for the strikes.

It did not elaborate or say who carried out the airstrikes early Tuesday.

Following reports of the missile strikes on April 16, the Israeli military declined to comment.

Opposition sources say Dumair airport is a major air base used in a large-scale military campaign waged by the Syrian army with Russian firepower that regained eastern Ghouta, a rebel enclave on the outskirts of Damascus.

That attack killed four Iranian military personnel - but Israel did not confirm or deny involvement.
