Several missiles struck a Syrian air base on Monday as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces faced accusations of attacking a rebel-held town near Damascus with poison gas. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 14 people died when the missiles hit the air base in Homs province. Three of the dead were Iranian, Fars news agency reported. Russia and Syria both blamed Israel for the attack, saying Syria shot down five missiles while three others landed on the western section of the base. Israel has neither confirmed nor denied the accusation.
