Missiles shot down over Syrian government airbase: state media

Video captures Syrian missile defense weapons at base targeted in US-led air strikes

The Pentagon on Monday denied any involvement in an attack on a Syrian air base outside Homs, not far from where USA, United Kingdom and French missiles struck early Saturday morning.

State television showed pictures of a missile that was shot in the air above the air base on Monday night, local time, only days after a US, British and French attack on Syrian targets, including the ai rbase, in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack on Douma.

Syrian state-run television has reported that the country's defenses have confronted a new "aggression", shooting down missiles over the central Homs region.

A Pentagon spokesman said there was no U.S. military activity in that area at this time.

Protection Secretary Mattis stated during the time that the Pentagon was careful to ensure the protection of Allied troops and also Syrian civilians inside the area and also that no follow-up attacks were planned.

It didn't say who carried out the early Tuesday airstrikes.

The Shayrat airbase was hit by a USA missile strike in April of 2017 over allegations of chemical weapons' use by the Syrian army in Idlib province in the same year.

Separately, a media outlet run by Hezbollah, a pro-Iranian militia, said Syrian government air defenses had shot down three missiles targeting Dumair military airport north east of the capital Damascus. Syria and its main allies Iran and Russian Federation blamed Israel for that attack. Iran is a longstanding ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
