Syrian air defenses responded to a missile strike in the central province of Homs after midnight Tuesday, state news agency SANA reported.

The recent incident follows a coordinated attack by the US, UK and France that saw over 100 missiles launched from US ships and UK Tornado fighter-bombers.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, 71 out of 103 cruise missiles were shot down by Syria's air defense units.

State-run television showed images of an intercepted missile and called the attack an "aggression".

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based war monitor, reported that big explosions were heard near Shayrat airbase and two other airbases near Damascus.

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

Separately, a media outlet run by Hezbollah, a pro-Iranian militia, said Syrian government air defenses had shot down three missiles targeting Dumair military airport north east of the capital Damascus.

The United States past year targeted the Shayrat airbase with cruise missiles in response to a sarin gas attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhun.

Reuters cited Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon as saying that "there is no USA military activity in that area at this time". Washington, London and Paris said the strikes were a response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria's Douma.

The attack comes after reports of covert airstrikes carried out by Israeli forces at Iranian bases in the Jabal Azzan region south of Aleppo. Social media reports are pointing the finger at Israel for the strikes.
