Syrian State TV Says Air Defenses Shoot Down Missiles

Syrian anti-aircraft defences have shot down missiles fired at the Syrian air base of Shayrat, in Homs province, and another base north-east of the capital Damascus, Syria's state television, official news agency and pro-Iranian Hezbollah media say.

Syrian news agency SANA stated that "Syrian air defense shot down missiles which violated airspace over Homs".

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.

"There is no USA military activity in that area at this time", Eric Pahond, a Pentagon spokesman said when asked about the strike in Homs.

Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said missiles did not hit any of the air bases. Those attacks were retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack that they blamed on the Syrian government.
