Syrian Air Defense systems were activated following the attack of Israeli warplanes in eastern Homs.
According to Syrian Arab News Agency, at 10:23 p.m. local time Israeli fighting jets launched several missiles towards the T4 airbase that is located in the eastern countryside of Homs.
The strikes were allegedly carried out from the American base Al-Tanf.
The T4 military airport serves to transport weapons from Iran. According to some sources, a weapons depot belonging to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards group was targeted.
The Syrian air defense systems reportedly intercepted most missiles. No casualties were reported. However, heavy material damage was caused by the airstrikes.
This is the second attack carried out by Israeli forces in the past two days. Late on August 31, air defense forces of Syria were activated to repel Israeli missile strikes on the countryside of the Syrian capital of Damascus and in Daraa province. Four air-defense systems were allegedly destroyed in the strikes.
