Syria, Russia accuse Israel over strike on Syrian air base

Monday's missile strike is not the first foreign attack against Syria, as the United States targeted the Shayrat air base in the countryside of Homs in April past year to punish alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army on a rebel-held area in the northwestern province of Idlib.

"The Israeli attack on the T-4 airport was carried out with F-15 aircraft that fired several missiles from above Lebanese territory", SANA said, citing a military source.

SANA reported that there were deaths and injuries as a result of the attack but did not give exact figures.

Israel has accused Damascus of allowing Iran to set up a complex at the T-4 base to supply arms to its ally, Lebanon's Hezbollah, and in the past its forces have hit convoys and bases of Iranian-backed militias that fight alongside Assad's troops.

It was the second such airstrike this year on the Syrian air base, known as T4, where Iranian fighters are believed to be stationed.

When asked about the explosions, an Israeli spokeswoman declined to comment.

The suspected poison gas attack on Saturday on the besieged town of Douma came nearly exactly a year after the United States missile attack prompted by the Khan Sheikhoun deaths.

The Syrian government launched a fierce air and ground assault on Douma, the last rebel-held town in the eastern Ghouta district, last Friday.

The Pentagon denied any role in the military airbase attack in Homs and issued a statement, "At this time, the Department of Defence is not conducting airstrikes in Syria".

"Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria".

The Syrian opposition blamed the suspected chemical attack on Saturday in the town of Douma on government forces.

Haley said those responsible for the attacks were "monsters", adding: "We must not overlook Russian Federation and Iran's roles in enabling the Assad regime's murderous destruction".

French President Emmanuel Macron spoke to Trump by telephone and the two agreed that they would work together to establish clear responsibility for what Macron's office said they had agreed was a confirmed chemical attack.

These reports could not be independently verified.

According to The Atlantic, The White Helmets, a voluntary aide group, pinned the blame for the assault, which claimed more than 40 civilian lives, on the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

"The numbers keep rising as relief workers struggle to gain access to the subterranean areas where gas has entered and hundreds of families had sought refuge", the group said.

The U.N. Security Council planned to hold an emergency meeting Monday to discuss the chemical attack. The European Union also said evidence pointed to the use of chemical weapons by Assad's forces.

United Nations war crimes investigators had previously documented 33 chemical attacks in Syria, attributing 27 to the Assad government, which has repeatedly denied using the weapons.
