BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 A.M.) – The Israeli Air Force fired several missiles at the T-4 Military Airport last night, killing at least 14 military personnel.
The T-4 Military Airport is located in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate; it is positioned just west of the ancient city of Palmyra (var. Tadmur).
During the Islamic State’s (ISIS) large-scale offensive in 2015, the T-4 Airport was the Syrian Arab Army’s most important base for fending off the terrorist group’s advance.
Once Palmyra was liberated from the Islamic State, the T-4 Airport would become a major hub for the Syrian Army, Hezbollah, and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
