Unknown missiles target regime’s airbases in Damascus, Homs

Unknown missiles targeted regime’s air base of Shayrat in Homs province late on Monday and another base northeast of the capital, Damascus, according to the regime-run TV and pro-Iranian media.
Assad media confirmed that missiles targeted the Shayrat airbase in eastern Homs countryside, without mentioning any details about the resulting damage or casualties.
Al-Manar TV, run by Hezbollah militia, reported from a ‘military source’ that 6 missiles targeted the airbase in Homs.
Pro-Iranian Hezbollah’s media service reported that three missiles, that were fired at the Dmeir military airport, northeast of Damascus, were intercepted by regime air defenses, according to Reuters.
A Pentagon spokesman told Reuters there was no US military activity in that area at this time; as Reuters reported an Israeli military spokesman saying, “We don’t comment on such reports.”
Opposition sources say Dmeir airport is a major air base used in a large-scale military campaign waged by the Assad regime with Russian firepower against opposition-held areas on the outskirts of Damascus.
Shayrat air base was targeted last year in a US cruise missile attack in response to a chemical attack that killed at least 70 people, including children, on the opposition-held town of Khan Sheikhoun.
