Syrian regime military air defenses thwarted an act of "aggression" that targeted the T4 air base in Homs province on Sunday night, state media said.

The origin and nature of the attack was not immediately clear.

An army officer in the southern Syrian desert said the air defense system shot down missiles coming from south of the Tanf region towards the Homs air base.
