Syrian govt shot down missiles over its two airbases

The Russian Defense MInistry

The fresh attack comes as the US, France, and Britain launched a missile strike on Syrian military positions in the capital Damascus and in Homs last Saturday over the same allegations of chemical weapons' use by the Syrian government forces.

Syrian air defenses responded to a missile attack over Homs which targeted Shayrat air base late Monday night, Syrian state television reported, APA reports quoting Reuters.

"Syrian air defense shot down missiles that entered its airspace over Homs", said the report.

Syria denied it was responsible for the attack, which killed at least 80 people.

"There are no United States or Coalition operations in that area [Homs]".

Israel's main concern in Syria is the growing influence of Iran, which it says supplies weapons to Hezbollah from inside the country.

As of Sunday night, some 40 evacuees remained at a Red Cross shelter, which had been set up at Hanalei Elementary School. Meanwhile, the Kalihiwai Reservoir has been inspected and deemed safe, allowing residents to return, the county said.

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.

An Israeli military spokesman said: "We don't comment on such reports".

The air strikes came in response to a suspected gas attack in Douma, outside Damascus, earlier this month in which the World Health Organization has said 43 people who died suffered "symptoms consistent with exposure to highly toxic chemicals".

While Israel has refrained from confirming its attacks on Syria, an Israeli military official admitted to New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman that his country was behind the T4 strike.

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov described it as a "provocation" and a "very unsafe development".
