Syrian Army Is Expanding T4 Airbase In Central Region

Donate

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is expanding the strategic T4 airbase in the country’s central region, satellite images released by Israeli defense observer Observer IL on September 3 revealed.

The images show that the length of the airbase’s southern runway is being expanded from 3,200 m to 3,750 m. A third runway is also apparently being built.


The T4 is one of the biggest airbases of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF). The airbase is hosting Iranian and Russian forces.

Earlier this year, Iranian forces moved their main supply center from Damascus International Airport to the T4 airbase. The Russian Aerospace Forces also deployed four Su-25 warplanes, helicopters and drones in the airbase.

The expansion of the T4 airbase is a sign of the increasing activity there. Israel targeted the airbase many time in the last few years.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Unlike the Zionist child killing filth rats who even left their soiled mattresses behind at the dumpy looking Avivam base after the textbook Hezbollah Kornet strike, Iran, Syria and Iraq are building an integrated defence infrastructure and the chickenshit Zionist cowards can do fuckall about it. Hezbollah exposed the frightened cowards who crapped in their in their filthy kippas and ran, even leaving behind rusted M-113 APC. The “mighty” IDF scum turned out to be less scary than mighty mouse.

    BTW, looks like besides the ranting embarrassed hasbara arsehole “RichardD” the rest of the hasbara trolls seem to have ran off with the IDF :)

    • RichardD

      You’re a head case and a truth hater whose been talking out of both sides of your mouth for as long as you’ve been here. The first missile detonated in front of the vehicle making it impossible for the second operator to see the vehicle to stay on target.

      Direct crop of the miss:

Tap on play back speed and choose .25 and watch the video in slow motion. Both misses are clear as day. The first missile detonated to the left front of the vehicle and the second detonation is to the right rear of the vehicle. Case closed, you lose.

          This is a screenshot from the video played at .25 speed showing the center of the fireball as it was contracting to the left front of the vehicle about a second after the detonation as the flash was dying down and the vehicle was entering the cloud of smoke. The armored truck had traveled about 1 vehicle length by this time towards the detonation. The first missile clearly missed, as did the second which detonated a considerable distance behind the vehicle.

      The vehicle drove by the next settlement a mile down the road with bothering vehicle and the detonation being caught on a CCTV camera according to the available evidence which no one has disproved that I’m aware of.

          Then disprove it.

          The Jew fucks are really butthurt. this moron is paid to post repetitive BS and we all are having a ball with his stupidity. Hasbara retards like the mighty IDF has sunk into the gutter of desperation.

            You’re making a fool out of yourself with your incessant lies.

        • Real Anti-Racist Action

          I don’t think he is stating it as fact. I think he is saying that all information must be analyzed so we can reach the truth. Israel is clearly the bad guys here, and they do engage in elaborate lying. However occasionally also something happens in their favor.
          The video may be a production by Israels IDF-media wing. Or it may be what really happened.
          Hez is by no means liars. They are truth tellers. However they are not God and can occasionally make mistakes and miss calculate.

        • RichardD

          The judicial quality evidence from the CCTV security camera makes it true. Until it’s disproven, it’s superior to the Hez propaganda video showing the gang that couldn’t shoot straight missing their target.

          The first shot was an obvious miss. And the second shot into a cloud making the target invisible turned a long shot into a pot shot.

      • Selbstdenker

        what does the video suppose to show? An explosion clearly seen developing smoke, suddenly a car out of nowhere, jumping a cars length forward and then rolling normal as it should be. Could be a doctored video overlaying an old video with the recent one, where the old video had the car moving. as a video it should have all frames, no missing ones, and should have uninterrupted movements of objects visible.

        • RichardD

          It was a mile down the road when the detonation occurred. They cut out the blank part. The smoke cloud can be seen dissapating in the background. If it’s photoshopped then prove it. I haven’t seen anyone disprove it yet.

        • RichardD

          I’m assuming that it does and that they cut out the dead time between the detonation a half mile away and the drive by. It all adds up.

        Even if the vehicle survived hezboulla attacked Israel in a coordinated attack that has deeply shaken the IDF to the point where they evacuated personel from vulnerable bases. It wasn’t the case of some suicide bomber or someone taking a pot shot at a vehicle but a double tap from a coordinated team in defended Israeli space. It’s not whether or not anyone was killed in the attack but that hezboulla is a much different force than what Israel faced in 2006. This time if the IDF invades Israel they face a professional army with seven years of combat experience under the tutelage of the Russians and armed with AGMT’s, manpads. rocket artillery and guided missiles. IDF soldiers have every right to be scared shitless of what’s to come.

        • RichardD

          The IDF is already in Israel. The gang that couldn’t shoot straight is a lot less scary than one that hits it’s targets.

            Again so what? It seems to me every time that the IAF launches an attack from Lebanon and most of their missiles get shot down but one or two sneak by it’s a great victory for israel and questions are raised about the quality of the SAA and Russian air defences. I say smart tactics on the part of Israel because they use the SAA’s rules of engagement which won’t allow them to attack IAF planes over Lebanon.

            So now Hezboulla launches a double tap assault on an IDF vehicle in Israeli territory. You say they missed however the video is inconclusive and the Israeli’s haven’t produced any proof the vehicle survived … which you would think they would simply for the propaganda bump. I say good tactics and the attack shows a high degree of professionalism whether they hit the vehicle or not.

          • RichardD

            You’re ignoring that the slow motion of the video is conclusive proof that both missiles missed. Did you even watch it? You’re also ignoring the CCTV security camera drive by video which would be admissible in any court of law that the Wolf and it’s crew survived the attack intact.

          • RichardD

            Have you ever tried hitting something 1 to 2 miles away, which is what these shots were, with optics and manual targeting? Let alone a moving target. These were hail Mary shots. It’s not surprising that they both missed. If that’s your idea of professionalism. I wouldn’t want you providing security for anything that I was involved with.

          • grumpy_carpenter

            “Have you ever tried hitting something 1 to 2 miles away, which is what these shots were, with optics and manual targeting?”

            Nope. That’s beyond the range of both my rifles neither of which have scopes.

            “These were hail Mary shots. It’s not surprising that they both missed.”

            You don’t aim and shoot these weapons like a rifle …. they are called ‘guided missiles’ for a reason.

            I believe they were using Kornet ATGM’s. Kornet is a beam riding SALCOS guided weapon so as long as the operator had the vehicle in it’s sights the vehicle was in range of the missile. I read recently that Israel has added soft kill anti-missile protection on MRAPs so if the missile was diverted at the last moment that’s the most likely reason.

            “If that’s your idea of professionalism.”

            Yea …… I’ll resist the urge to make fun of this one and answer this as if you wrote a coherent sentence. Attacking a vehicle carrying an Israeli general in Israeli territory with a double tap hit …. Yes I think it’s professional.

            “I wouldn’t want you providing security for anything that I was involved with.”

            LOL … Good Lord, I wouldn’t hire me for security either. not my line of work.

          • RichardD

            You aim them like a rifle with a scope and target laser. Try it sometime on a moving target 1 to 2 miles away and see how you do.
