Syrian Air Defense confronts Israeli missiles over T-4 Airbase

The Syrian Air Defense confronted a fresh Israeli attack on the T-4 Airbase, tonight, an official source from the military told Al-Masdar News.

According to the military source, the Syrian Air Defense fired several missiles towards the Israeli rockets in an attempt to thwart their attack on the strategic T-4 Airbase.

However, despite the short confrontation, the Israeli warplane successfully hit a number of targets at the T-4 Airbase, causing material damage to this installation in the eastern countryside of Homs.

As shown in the footage below, the Syrian Air Defense attempted to thwart the attack by firing their missiles towards the Israeli rockets:

The Syrian Air Defense was able to down some of the Israeli rockets above the T-4 Airbase during the brief confrontation on Sunday evening.

Israel has yet to comment on this latest attack, despite accusations from the Syrian military government.

Israeli warplanes previously targeted the T-4 Airbase in April of this year, killing at least seven Iranian military personnel and seven Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers.

One month after that attack, Syrian Army and Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) traded missile attacks along the border of the occupied Golan Heights, prompting the latter to launch their largest air attack on Syria since 1973.

  1. Yes, Israel will not allow Trump’s visit with Putin to go it’s own way. Invariably something will happen. The Novichuk rerun didn’t garner the attention hoped for so, they will have to come up with something different, something wild and inventive to further demonize our Russian brothers. I don’t think anything will work. The public is not only tired of the sos, but we are awake too. We know it’s the neocons. And have since PNAC blatantly showed their hand so freely, when the year before 911, they not only announced it to the world, “America needs a new Pearl Harbor”, in arrogant fashion they put it in writing too. They named their report “The New American Century”. One has to be an idiot not to connect the dots. People are waking up.

  2. BIBI still imagining those pesky Iranian divisions massed against Israel near the Golan?

    Some day BIBI will cut off his head to spite his inky, dinky ‘pinky’. Loss of his pinky alone will be an especially sore loss for not only will he have to learn to pull buggers from his hirsute nostrils with some other fidgeting digit but also pull ideas of national or notional imporance from – where I can only describe discretely, as the vast, windy regions of his nether end. Of course we at VT have long understood his penchant for farts, especially brain-farts about Iran, from the immeasurable empty spaces between his ears. So when we say BIBI is ‘full of it’ – all his illogical arguments to the same irrational purpose, let there be no confusion as to which end it is coming from – it doesn’t matter in the slightest, because whatever he propounds reeks of a characteristic stench peculiar to BIBI alone that oozes from every pore of his corpus giganticus. Remember how congress rose to a man, thirty seven times, just to flap away the sulfurous stench permeating the hallowed halls when, all full of wind and piss, he addressed that dual-citizen den of iniquity those few, short, stinking years ago?
