Six missiles targeted the Shayrat airbase in the central province of Homs and the Syrian air defences intercepted a lot of them, Xinhua reported citing the report, adding that three other missiles targeted the Dumair airbase in the Dumair area in the eastern Qalamoun region north of Damascus and were all intercepted before reaching their targets.
Syrian state news agency SANA cited a military source as saying a number of air defence missiles had been fired but no foreign attack had taken place.
Syria's state run television says a false alarm - and not an outside aggression and incoming airstrikes - had set off Syrian air defenses early this morning. Reports close to the regime indicated that its defences shot down six missiles targeting the base. This area has also been targeted by the Israeli air force in the past.
It said that air defense had been activated after a "false alarm".
