Syrian air defence shoots down missiles over Homs: state media

17 April 2018

Up to 10 missiles were destroyed by the Syrian Armed Forces, a military source told Sputnik.

Syrian state-run television says Syria's air defenses have confronted a new "aggression", shooting down missiles over the area of Homs in the country's center. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, 71 out of 103 cruise missiles were shot down by Syria's air defense units.

A military source added the Syrian military believes Israeli warplanes were responsible. Reports of that attack had been swirling on social media before the announcement.

It is now unclear what the airstrike was targeting.
