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.
