Syrian state-run television reported early Tuesday that Syrian air defenses have confronted a new "aggression" over Homs, but did not say who carried out the airstrikes.

Syrian news agency SANA stated that "Syrian air defense shot down missiles which violated airspace over Homs". The television report did not, however, specify who may have fired the missiles.

Asked about the incident, an Israeli military spokesman said: "We don't comment on such reports".

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

"We do not have additional details to provide", Pahon said.

A military source added the Syrian military believes Israeli warplanes were responsible.

The U.S., along with the United Kingdom and France, conducted airstrikes on Saturday in Syria to punish the Assad regime for an apparent chemical weapons attack against civilians. Syria and its allies most recently accused Israel of launching a strike against Syria's T4 airbase in Homs, killing four Iranian military personnel.

"There is no U.S. military activity in that area at this time", Eric Pahond, a Pentagon spokesman said when asked about the strike in Homs.

Syria denied it was responsible for the attack, which killed at least 80 people.
