Syria state television has confirmed its air defences are repelling attacks in the country’s Homs region.

The military announced at around 1.10am local time (11.10pm GMT) that it had fired missiles towards the Shay’rat Airbase, to the south-east of Homs, and its surrounding area in the Homs Governorate.

Local reporter Ibrahim Joudeh took to Twitter and posted a video of the missiles being shot at in the sky.

He said: “Video shows Missile launched against unknown Target in Far East Damascus countryside.”

Mr Joudeh added shortly after that “another air defence missile was just launched”.

According to local reports, several missiles were launched after “unknown warplanes” entered Syrian airspace from Lebanon.

A military source added the Syrian military believes Israeli warplanes were responsible.

Also a number of local reporters have said there are “Israeli warplanes” flying at high-altitude carrying out the attack after crossing the borders through Lebanon.
