New missile strikes targeting two airfields in Syria

We have our own red line’ Russian deputy FM on Western-sponsored UNSC draft resolution on Syria

Syrian state television says the country's air defenses shot down missiles targeting its Shayrat airfield late on April 16.

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

No country has yet claimed the attack after midnight but US officials recently said that Washington wasn't planning another strike after the missile strike on Saturday. Adrian Rankine-Galloway, a Pentagon spokesman, said in an email to Fox News.

The Pentagon has declared there is "no USA military activity near Homs at this time".

The Pentagon on Monday denied any involvement in an attack on a Syrian air base outside Homs, not far from where USA, United Kingdom and French missiles struck early Saturday morning.

Israeli interventions: Tel Aviv has carried out multiple airstrikes on Syrian government targets during the conflict.

Israel, which hardly ever acknowledges its raids inside Syria, failed to comment on its alleged involvement. It also comes roughly a week after two Israeli F-15 fighters targeted another Syria's airbase in Homs province, Tiyas (also known as T-4 Airbase).
