It also reported that the missiles were shot down by the country's air defenses.

Syrian air defences have responded to a missile attack over Homs which targeted Shayrat air base late on Monday night, Syrian state television reported.

Even the US, along side the United Kingdom along with France, ran air-strikes on Saturday in Syria to punish the Assad regimen for an apparent chemical weapons attack from civilians.

State television showed pictures of a missile that was shot in the air above the air base only days after a US, British and French attack onSyrian targets in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack on the city of Douma on the outskirts of Damascus. Shayrat airbase was targeted past year 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. Social media reports are pointing the finger at Israel for the strikes.

Defense Secretary Mattis said at the time that no follow-up attacks were planned and that the Pentagon was careful to ensure the safety of Russian troops and Syrian civilians in the area.

Moscow and Damascus claimed two Israeli fighter planes carried out that airstrike "remotely from Lebanese territory".

Earlier this month, four Iranian military personnel were killed in an airstrike on the Syrian T4 air base in Homs. Most of the missiles were downed, a Syrian military official said.

"We don't comment on such reports", Reuters quoted a spokesman for the Israeli military as saying.

Syrian government has strongly rejected the allegations as fabrication by the rebels and Western countries to justify a military attack on Syria.
