Assad regime air defenses respond to missile attack over Homs

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

The Syrian Central Media run by the government said the missiles targeted Shayrat air base in Homs.

The apparent attack came days after the US, France and Britain conducted a coordinated missile attack against Syrian government targets.

Shayrat was hit a year ago by U.S. cruise missiles, launched in response to a chemical attack that killed at least 70 people in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun.

The news agency did not give further details and it was unclear who was behind the attack, which Syrian state television branded as an "aggression".

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.

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

There has been speculation that Israel launched the strikes.

Syria and its main allies Iran and Russian Federation blamed Israel for that attack.

Big explosions were heard on Monday night near the same air base, southeast of the city of Homs, and in eastern Qalamoun near Damascus where two other air bases are located, the Syrian Observatory for Human rights reported. Meanwhile, the Syrian state TV aired still image of what it said was the air defences intercepting the missiles.

"There is no USA military activity in that area at this time", a Pentagon spokesman, Eric Pahon, said.

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.
