Syrian anti-aircraft defences shot down missiles that hit the Syrian air base of Shayrat in Homs province late Monday night, Syrian state television said.
The Syrian air defenses managed to intercept some of the projectiles, according to a SANA reporter.
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.More news: Who are the Windrush generation and why are they facing deportation?
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.
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 strikes come less than 72 hours after the US, France and the United Kingdom carried out missile strikes against three targets in Syria, that include two chemical weapons facilities and a research centre for the regime.

Following reports of the missile strikes on April 16, the Israeli military declined to comment.
While Israel has refrained from confirming its attacks on Syria, an Israeli military official admitted to New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman that his country was behind the T4 strike.More news: Russian Federation may have tampered with chemical attack site, USA envoy says
