BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – An Iranian cargo plane was tracked on Tuesday flying to Syria’s T-4 Airbase in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate.
According to reports, the Iranian cargo plane traveled from Tehran to the T-4 Airbase, marking the 4th time in the last four days that this aircraft has made the journey.
The Iranian cargo plane was likely delivering military equipment to Syria as their previous attempts to do so were often targeted by the Israeli Air Force.
The T-4 Airbase is strategically located between the provincial capital of Homs and the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur).
Due to the large presence of Iranian-backed troops in eastern Homs and Deir Ezzor, military equipment deliveries to the T-4 Airbase is incredibly important to Tehran and their ongoing operations inside of Syria.
However, while the Iranian military has managed to move away from the border of the occupied Golan Heights, Israel is still monitoring from afar, particularly from the western slope of the Qalamoun Mountains in eastern Lebanon.
On March 27th, Israel launched a large-scale attack on the Aleppo Governorate, proving they are willing to fly any distance to not only strike Iranian troops, but also prevent them from acquiring any shipments from Tehran.
