Syrian air defences intercepted missiles over Homs which targeted Shayrat air base late on Monday night, Syrian state television reported.

Shayrat air base was targeted by USA forces in 2017 after a suspected chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun that Washington blamed on the Syrian government.

Shayrat air base was targeted by US Tomahawk missiles in April a year ago in a strike ordered by President Donald Trump in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhun in Idlib.

Reuters cited Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon as saying that "there is no USA military activity in that area at this time".

There has been speculation that Israel launched the strikes.
