A Syrian official says a U.S. missile strike on an air base in the country's center has killed seven people.
Talal Barazi, the governor of the province of Homs where the base is based, says the Friday dawn attack has also wounded nine. Initial reports said six were killed. The attack also caused extensive damage to the air base.
The Syrian military called the attack a "blatant aggression" that would undermine its war on terror.
The U.S. strike followed Tuesday's gruesome chemical attack in the town of Khan Sheikhoun, where more than 80 people were killed.
