syria missile strike

Syrian state news organizations claimed that the missiles, which targeted Shayrat air base, were shot down by its air defenses.

  • Syrian air defenses are responding to a new series of strikes, according to multiple news reports published on Monday night.
  • 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.
  • Syrian state media is widely believed to exaggerate their claims of shooting down incoming missiles.
  • The same air base was targeted by US missiles in 2017, after it was suspected of being involved in a previous chemical attack that killed at least 70 people in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun.
  • A US Central Command official told Business Insider that the command was aware of the reports.
  • Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahond said there was "no US military activity in that area at this time," according to The Jerusalem Post.
