Syria has been attacked by foreign missiles and foreign aircraft. The attacks are CONFIRMED by Syrian State Television. THE U.S. IS DENYING ANY ATTACK BY U.S. FORCES.
A military airport in Syria has come under missile attack, the country's state media has reported.
It said several people were dead or wounded, and that Syrian air defence was responding.
Syrian TV said loud explosions had been heard near the T4 airbase in the city of Homs in the early hours of Monday.
"Several missiles hit the Tayfur airport," the state news agency SANA said.
Details are still emerging and the reports have not been independently verified.
The reports come amid global alarm over a suspected chemical attack on the rebel-held town of Douma, in Syria's Eastern Ghouta region.
US president Donald Trump branded Syria's President Assad an "animal" on Sunday , warning that he, along with allies Iran and Russia, had a "big price to pay".

At least eight missiles were launched at Syria’s T-4 air base in the east of Homs province, SANA reports, citing a military source. According to the agency, the attack has “likely” been carried out by the United States.
There are several “martyrs and wounded” as a result of the strike, SANA added, without specifying the number of casualties.
While the US Defense Department is "aware" of reports of an alleged missile strike, it did not confirm them, a Pentagon representative told Sputnik. Reuters also says that “several” US officials have dismissed the reports of any US involvement.
According to Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen broadcaster, the missiles were coming from the Mediterranean Sea, through Lebanese airspace. Meanwhile, Al Masdar News is reporting that “unknown jets” have entered Syrian airspace from Lebanon, and is speculating that the jets could be Israeli. In response, the Syrian Air Defense system at Mezzeh Air Base was activated, the report added.

Over 12 Syrian troops killed and 30 injured in cruise missile strikes on T4 Airbase
Regarding the air strikes on Syria: The U.S has not (as of yet) taken responsibility, meaning Israel has potentially conducted the strike, possibly with, or without USA support. There's still the potential for future unilateral / coalition strikes from USA & possibly France.
Pentagon: At this time, the Department of Defense is not conducting air strikes in Syria. However, we continue to closely watch the situation and support the ongoing diplomatic efforts to hold those who use chemical weapons, in Syria and otherwise, accountable.
Did Israel just pre-empt Trump’s decision by making it for him?
Will Russia misconstrue this attack as an extension of US Policy?
Will Russia now attack Israel?
This could go sideways faster than a virgin with a condom on prom night
CNN, FOX, ABC NEWS, AP have all said it's not the United States.
Must be Israel starting things because they know we move a bit more slowly.
Regardless, it's on. Stay alert, stay alive.
Russians were hit during the attack tonight too.
Russian MoD and RT are reporting it as Israeli strike.
Russia says it was 8 guided missles fired and 5 got intrcepted by airdefenses.
So its confirmed that something happned and it was Israelis.
