Syrian air defence shoots down missiles over Homs: state media

Syrian state news agency SANA cited a military source as saying a number of air defence missiles had been fired but no foreign attack had taken place.

Earlier this month, four Iranian military officials were killed in an airstrike on the Syrian T4 air base in Homs.

"There was no external attack on Syria", the source added. Earlier it was reported that two F-15 Israel struck eight missiles on the airfield Tifor. Reports close to the regime indicated that its defences shot down six missiles targeting the base.

In addition to the missiles shot down, pro-Iranian Hezbollah's media service also noted that three missiles that were fired at Dumair military airport, north-east of Damascus were intercepted by Syrian air defences.

Toyota to launch 'talking' cars soon
By announcing its plans, Toyota hopes the rest of the auto industry will follow suit and embrace the technology. The detail of the proposal insisted all vehicles "speak the same language through a standard technology".

But US Pentagon spokeswoman Heather Babb said: "There are no US or coalition operations in that area". "We don't have anything additional to provide".

A total of 100 cruise and air-to-surface missiles were launched at targets in Syria, the ministry stated, noting that two U.S. warships carried out the attack from the Red Sea, as well as tactical aviation over the Mediterranean Sea and B-1B bombers from al Tanf area. Following reports of an Israeli strike, an Israeli military spokesman said: "I'm not aware of such an incident". An inspection of chemical weapons experts was on the ground in Syria and preparing to visit the site of the alleged attack to establish whether it actually happened.

On Monday, Syrian and Russian authorities prevented investigators from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons from going to the scene, the head of the group said, blocking global efforts to establish what happened and who was to blame.

Syria and its main allies Iran and Russian Federation blamed Israel for that attack, even though Israel did not confirm or deny mounting the raid.
