They added that several explosions were heard near the base.

A local reporter for The Arab News said Israeli warplanes were spotted in Syrian airspace just before the missiles were reported.

Syrian air defense systems have been activated in response to a missile attack apparently targeting Shayrat Airbase in Homs province, state media SANA reports.

A Pentagon spokesman said there was no USA military activity in that area at this time.

Syrian air defenses responded to a missile strike, believed to be carried out by Israel, that targeted two airbases in Syria after midnight Tuesday, according to the War Media, the media wing of the Syrian army.

The combined force deployed 105 total weapons against three targets that will significantly impact the Syrian regime's ability to develop, deploy and use chemical weapons in the future.
