Raw video: Department of Defense releases footage of Tomahawk missiles fired from the USS Higgins toward targets in Syria on April 14th.

Up to 10 missiles were destroyed by the Syrian Armed Forces, a military source told Sputnik.

The United States a year ago targeted the Shayrat airbase with cruise missiles in response to a sarin gas attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhun.

Big explosions were heard near Al Shayrat Air base in Homs province, and in eastern Qalamoun near Damascus where two other air bases are located, the Syrian Observatory for Human rights reported.

A local reporter for The Arab News said Israeli warplanes were spotted in Syrian airspace just before the missiles were reported.

It is now unclear what the airstrike was targeting. Approximately nine missiles reportedly targeted the base; their source isn't yet clear.

A statement from the Syrian regime added that several missiles were intercepted, but these reports are unconfirmed.

There are now no reports of targets hit in Damascus.

Pro-Syrian regime outlets and social media accounts reported that air defences had foiled a missile attack on Shayrat airbase near Homs, the same location that was targeted in USA missile strikes past year. Syria and its allies most recently accused Israel of launching a strike against Syria's T4 airbase in Homs, killing four Iranian military personnel.

Defense Secretary Mattis said at the time that no follow-up attacks were planned and that the Pentagon was careful to ensure the safety of Russian troops and Syrian civilians in the area.

The strike was created to disable the country's use of chemical weapons after it allegedly used chlorine against rebels in Douma, eastern Ghouta on April 7.
