Syrian anti-aircraft defenses shoot down more missiles

According to these sources, Syrian air defenses intercepted most of the missiles fired at Shayrat and all of the missiles fired at Ad-Dumayr.

On Monday, Syrian and Russian authorities prevented investigators from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons from going to the scene, the head of the group said, blocking worldwide efforts to establish what happened and who was to blame.

Shayrat airbase was targeted a year ago in a U.S. cruise missile attack in response to a chemical attack that killed at least 70 people, including children on the rebel held town of Khan Sheikhoun.

Syria said on Tuesday that a "false alarm" had activated its air defences, retracting earlier statements of an overnight missile attack on the central province of Homs. Iran is a longstanding ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

But US Pentagon spokeswoman Heather Babb said: There are no US or coalition operations in that area.


The rebels in Dumair area will follow the lead of their comrades who evacuated Douma last week and moved to the rebel-held city of Jarablus, as part of the deal with the government.

Israel has also argued that Iran is expanding its influence in a belt of territory that stretches from the Iraqi border to the Lebanese border, where Israel claim Iran supplies Hezbollah with arms.

On Saturday, the U.S., France and Britain bombarded sites they said were linked to Syria's chemical weapons program.

Israeli interventions: Tel Aviv has carried out multiple airstrikes on Syrian government targets during the conflict.

Earlier in April, four Iranian military personnel were killed in an airstrike on the Syrian T4 air base in Homs. He did not elaborate. British Prime Minister Theresa May says Syria and Russian Federation - whose forces now control the town east of Damascus - are trying to cover up evidence.
