syria missile strike

Syrian air defenses are responding to a new series of strikes, according to multiple news reports published on Monday night.
Syrian state news organizations claimed that the missiles, which targeted Shayrat air base, were shot down by air defenses but did not identify who fired them, Reuters reported.
The same air base was targeted by US missiles in 2017, after it was suspected of being involved in a previous chemical attack that killed dozens.
A US Central Command official said the command was aware of the reports, but did not comment further.
