Homs: Israeli warplanes hit Syrian air base – Roce Today

Syrian air defenses in the central province of Homs opened fire Friday night on missiles launched by what state media claimed were Israeli warplanes.

State broadcaster SANA did not elaborate further on the alleged attack.

Unverified sources in favor of the opposition said the attacks targeted Tiyas Air Base, or T-4, outside the Syrian city of Palmyra. The air base has been hit multiple times in recent years, presumably by Israel.

A reporter from the Lebanese news site al-Mayadeen said Syrian air defenses managed to shoot down most of the missiles before they reached base. The site is loosely affiliated with Hezbollah, an ally of Iran and the Syrian regime.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or injuries.

The Israeli military does not comment on reports of specific attacks in Syria, except those that are in retaliation for attacks from the country.

Israel has launched hundreds of attacks on Iranian-related military targets in Syria over the years, but rarely recognizes or discusses such operations.

Israel fears Iranian entrenchment on its northern border and has repeatedly hit Iranian-linked weapons and structures destined for Hezbollah.
