Syria accuses Israel of striking T4 airbase near Homs

Syria accuses Israel of striking T4 airbase near Homs Syria accuses Israel of striking T4 airbase near Homs

Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told AFP that a missile bombardment killed an unspecified number of "Iranian and pro-regime fighters" at the T4 base and was "likely to be Israeli".

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that Israel does not comment on foreign reports, Reuters reported on Sunday night.

In response, Israel launched an extensive campaign of strikes on Iranian targets in Syria including "intelligence sites, logistic facilities, military compounds, storage facilities as well as observations posts".

Since the start of Syria's civil war in 2011, Israel has repeatedly targeted positions of the Syrian army and Lebanon's Shia movement Hezbollah backing it inside the country.

"The Zionist regime tries to gain dominance over Syria after Daesh, but resistance forces and military advisers from the Islamic Republic of Iran will continue their presence alongside Syria to counter terrorism, " he added.

Unconfirmed reports said that the jets flew in via Jordan and passed over the al-Tanf area where the United States has a military base and Al Jazeera reported that between four to six missile struck the base causing material damage.

Moscow, Tehran and Damascus accused Israel of carrying out those raids.

Attacks on the T-4 based mark a new phase in Israel's defense against Iranian provocation, which has included in the past sending an armed drone into Israeli airspace.

In April, Israel acknowledged targeting a shipment of advanced air defense weapons, including a missile with a 110 kilometer range, at the base. The Syrian government has repeatedly condemned the Israeli aggression and warned about its unsafe repercussions.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet this week with Russia's President Vladimir Putin and on the agenda will be - again - the issue of eliminating Iran's presence in Syria.

Sunday's strikes coincided with the Assad government's progress, backed by Russian support, in the nearby southern province of Daraa.
