BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:10 A.M.) – Massive explosions were heard in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, tonight, after unknown jets entered Syrian airspace from Lebanon.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Air Defense system was deployed from the Mezzeh Air Base after the jets entered Syria from Lebanon’s Beqa’a Valley.

Some early reports indicate that the jets were Israeli, as this is the route they usually take before bombing the Syrian military.

There is still no confirmation regarding the cause of the blasts or if the warplanes were Israeli or U.S.

U.S. President Donald Trump recently said that the Syrian government will “pay a price” for the reported Douma attacks; however, there has been no word from Damascus that these explosions were caused by U.S. airstrikes.

It appears that the Russian supplied air defense system is not very efficient.

Well Russia just sits on their hands while Israel does what it wants. Syria just has to take it because the Russians have no courage.

Russians and Assad do have courage, but Putin the girly man doesn’t.

You seriously think Syria, with their ancient air defense systems from fifty years ago, took out these bunch of missiles just now? lol That WAS Russia, fool.
