The US on Sunday denied it was conducting air strikes in Syria after state media reported a missile strike on an army air base had killed and wounded several people.

"At this time, the Department of Defense is not conducting air strikes in Syria," a Pentagon spokesman said. 

"However, we continue to closely watch the situation and support the ongoing diplomatic efforts to hold those who use chemical weapons, in Syria and otherwise, accountable."
