DAMASCUS - In Syria , at least fourteen people were killed in missile attack on Tayfur airbase in Homs province this morning.
State news agency SANA reported that Syrian air defense system acted against the attack, destroying eight missiles before they reached their target, while others hit the base. State-run media outlets blamed that the United States was behind the attack. Pentagon has denied the allegation.
