Reports say six missiles have hit Shayrat air base in Homs and three missiles have hit Dumayr airbase, but these are unconfirmed so far.

"None of the combined aircraft or missiles involved in this mission were successfully engaged by Syrian air defenses and there is no indication Russian air defense systems were deployed", EUCOM said in a press release. Meanwhile, the Al Mayadeen news outlet is claiming that all the projectiles were intercepted and inflicted no physical damage or casualties at the targeted Syrian base. Washington, London and Paris said the strikes were a response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria's Douma. The same information was also shared with TASS news agency by Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon. Approximately nine missiles reportedly targeted the base; their source isn't yet clear.
