Syrian State TV Says Air Defenses Shoot Down Missiles

Smoke billows in the town of Douma in Syria's Eastern Ghouta

Damascus skies erupt with surface to air missile fire as the USA launches an attack on Syria targeting different parts of the Syrian capital Damascus, Syria, April 14, 2018.

Syrian state news organizations claimed that the missiles, which targeted Shayrat air base, were shot down by air defenses but did not identify who fired them, Reuters reported.

"None of the combined aircraft or missiles involved in this mission were successfully engaged by Syrian air defenses and there is no indication Russian air defense systems were deployed", EUCOM said in a press release. Approximately nine missiles reportedly targeted the base; their source isn't yet clear.

Also a number of local reporters have said there are "Israeli warplanes" flying at high-altitude carrying out the attack after crossing the borders through Lebanon.

A statement from the Syrian regime added that several missiles were intercepted, but these reports are unconfirmed.

Asked about the incident, an Israeli military spokesman said: "We don't comment on such reports".
