Syrian air defence shoots down missiles, reports say (videos)

SANA News Agency reported there were no casualties

Syria’s air defences shot down missiles targeting Shayrat air base in Homs province early Tuesday, state media reported, as a Hezbollah media arm said missiles targeting Dumayr base near Damascus were also intercepted.
Iranian news agencies also reported missiles being fired toward Shayrat. Approximately nine missiles reportedly targeted the base; their source isn’t yet clear.
A Hezbollah militia media unit shortly afterward stated that Syrian air defences intercepted three missiles that targeted the Dumayr airport in northeast Damascus. Reports of that attack had been swirling on social media before the announcement.
Syrian news agency SANA stated that “Syrian air defence shot down missiles which violated airspace over Homs.” The agency did not indicate the source of the strike, but later said no casualties or material damage had been reported as a result of it. Social media reports are pointing the finger at Israel for the strikes.

“There is no US military activity in that area at this time,” Eric Pahond, a Pentagon spokesman said when asked about the strike in Homs. “We do not have additional details to provide.”
