The Syrian air defenses managed to intercept some of the projectiles, according to a SANA reporter.

Syrian air defence shot down missiles over the western city of Homs, the state news agency said on Tuesday (Apr 17), with the strikes reportedly targeting regime air bases.

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

Hezbollah's AlManar TV reported that six missiles targeted Shayrat and three were aimed at Dumair military airport outside Homs on Monday.

The same air base was targeted by USA missiles in 2017, after it was suspected of being involved in a previous chemical attack that killed at least 70 people in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun.

The US Department of Defense said there was "no USA military activity in that area at this time".

A military source added the Syrian military believes Israeli warplanes were responsible.

On April 14, 2018, the United States, the United Kingdom and France launched cruise missiles at Syria's military and civilian infrastructure.

Israel, which hardly ever acknowledges its raids inside Syria, failed to comment on its alleged involvement.

"There is no U.S. military activity in that area at this time", a Pentagon spokesman, Eric Pahon, said. It also comes roughly a week after two Israeli F-15 fighters targeted another Syria's airbase in Homs province, Tiyas (also known as T-4 Airbase).
