Syrian defenses intercept Israeli attack on airbase in Homs – state media

An Israeli attack on the Syrian military’s T4 airbase in central Homs Province was intercepted by the country’s air defenses, SANA news agency reported.

The airbase was targeted in an attack by Israeli warplanes that fired a barrage of missiles at the facility, most of which were shot down, a military source told SANA, adding that the planes came from the direction of the Al-Tanf region in southeastern Syria, where the US maintains a base.

T4, or Tiyas Military Airbase, has been struck by the Israeli Air Force on several occasions in recent years. In April 2018, an attack on the base killed seven Iranian military advisers and Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) members, who were stationed there to assist Syria in fighting terrorists.
