Former IAF Commander: Israel Likely Behind Homs Attack

Reuters

"At this time, the Department of Defense is not conducting air strikes in Syria".

Israel did not comment on Monday's missile strike.

Most of those killed were either Iranians or members of Iran-backed groups, said Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the observatory, which has regularly monitored Syria's seven-year war.

The state broadcaster earlier said explosions were heard at the T-4 airfield near Homs, which is close to the ancient city of Palmyra in central Syria.

"Without any grounds and without thinking about the consequences, the governments of the USA, the United Kingdom, and France are pursuing a confrontational policy towards Russia and Syria and are pushing the others toward this", Nebenzya was quoted as saying by Russian state-run news agency TASS.

Human Rights Watch has estimated the Syrian government has committed "at least five more chemical weapons attacks" since April 2017 when Trump ordered 59 Tomahawk missiles fired on a Syrian airbase.

Ronaldo had earlier volleyed home the opening goal, and it was no surprise to see the forward score as he is in such red-hot form. The Atletico star is clearly a fan of the video game Fortnite and has already given us a few celebrations inspired by the game.

Defense analysts say there are large deployments of Russian forces at the base, and jets fly regular sorties from there to strike rebel-held areas.

The Revolutionary Guards, Iran's most powerful military force have been fighting in support of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad for several years.

Monday's missile attack followed a suspected poison gas attack on Saturday on the last remaining foothold for the Syrian opposition in the eastern suburbs of Damascus. "If it's Russian Federation, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll figure it out", Trump said.

"US President Donald Trump promised a 'big price to pay" for the suspected chemical attack.

As worldwide officials worked to try to confirm Saturday's chemical attack on Douma, a Syria medical relief group said at least 60 people had been killed there and more than 1,000 injured in several sites. "Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world". Referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin, he added: "Everybody's going to pay a price - he will, everybody will".

Israel has neither confirmed nor denied responsibility for the attack on the Syrian base.

Taking potshots at RSS, the Congress leader accused it of generating anger and hatred in the society. He said the Congress would do everything to protect this way of life.

The Russian Foreign Ministry warned against military action on the basis of "invented and fabricated excuses".

Guterres's speical envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, told the Council via a video link from Geneva that the terrorist group Jaish al-Islam that was in control of Douma had asked for United Nations intervention, but the Syrian government did not respond to it. Although the agency said it was likely "an American aggression", US officials said the United States had not launched any airstrikes on Syria.

SANA first said the missile strike on the Tayfur base was a "suspected United States attack", but later withdrew all reference to America.

One video shared by activists showed bodies of about a dozen children, women and men, some with foam at the mouth.

Syria said it shot down eight missiles in the attack Monday morning on an air base, Syria's official Sana news agency reported.

At least 14 people have died near the city of Homs, after air strikes at a Syrian military base.
