Casualties reported in strike on Syria air base: state media

Trump ordered missile strikes on a Syrian air base a year ago in response to a sarin-gas attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhun. The report said Syrian government forces shot down eight missiles at the T4 airbase, and that the attacks were "likely to be an American aggression".
Syrian state TV meanwhile quoted the unnamed military official as saying Israeli F-15 warplanes had fired several missiles while flying over neighboring Lebanon.
The strikes came one day after a suspected chemical gas attack near Damascus in Syria, where dozens of people have been killed.
U.S. President Donald Trump said earlier on Sunday there would be a "big price to pay" after medical aid groups reported dozens of civilians, including many children and women, were killed by poison gas in a besieged rebel-held town.
The Syrian government denied it carried out a chemical weapons attack.
"At this time, the Department of Defense is not conducting air strikes in Syria", Pentagon spokesmanChristopher Sherwood said in statement.
The Syrian American Medical Society and the civil defence service, which operates in rebel-held areas, said 49 people had been killed in the suspected gas attack.
"Without any grounds and without thinking about the consequences, the governments of the US, 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.
Russian Federation is warning the US against any "military intervention" in Syria over the government's alleged chemical attack against civilians this weekend, saying any such response would be "unacceptable" and lead to the "most serious consequences". The alleged attack in Douma occurred Saturday night amid a resumed offensive by Syrian government forces after the collapse of a truce. Israel hit the base, known as T4, in February, after it said an Iranian drone that violated Israeli airspace took off from it. Iran, a key ally of Assad, condemned the strikes, which it said killed four Iranians, including a colonel and a member of the Revolutionary Guard's aerospace force.
When asked about the explosions, an Israeli spokeswoman declined to comment.
At least 14 people have died near the city of Homs, after air strikes at a Syrian military base.
The attacks have come almost a week after Trump expressed his desire to bring the USA troops back to the country. "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.
Wu Haitao, China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations, addresses a meeting of the UN Security Council on the chemical weapon use in Syria, at the UN headquarters in New York April 9, 2018. She called Syrian President Bashar al-Assad a "monster" who "no civilized government would have anything to do with".
It is believed the strikes are in response to an alleged chemical gas attack on Saturday.
Moscow said some 8,000 fighters and 40,000 civilians would be bussed out and said that proved "no chemical weapons were used in this area".
