BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:49 A.M.) – According to Syrian Digital Media, up to twenty cruise missiles may have been fired at the Syrian military’s T-4 airbase in eastern Homs province on the night of Sunday to Monday.

The same source added that personnel at the T-4 airbase were warned at least five minutes before the first impacts and that a number of missiles struck positions in and around the military installation.

As mentioned earlier, the Syrian military claims to have intercepted eight missiles without stating how many were fired at the T-4 site as part of the total salvo.

Although still unofficial, it appears that the missile strike was conducted by Israeli warplanes via Lebanese airspace; this suspicion is reinforced by the fact that Israeli forces have attacked the T-4 airbase before due to the reported presence of Hezbollah and Iranian assets at it.

A lot of people are jumping to the conclusion that the attacks are American, but I think the conclusion drawn from this article makes more sense. The US hasn’t denied any of its previous attacks on the Syrian goverment, so I don’t see why they would start now. In addition as the article points out Israel has attacked the base before, due to the Iranian presence.

Except there are still no witnesses about Israeli warplanes having taken off… And cruise missiles, especially in numbers, are more likely launched from ships or submarines : usually, a frigate will carry 16-24 cruise missiles while a destroyer will carry 48. It might be doubled but in such case, you get rid of surface to air missiles which may not be a good idea as so the ship will be dead meat to opponent aviation… About half a squadron carrying 2 cruise missiles per plane would have had to cross the Lebanese airspace, these wouldn’t had been unnoticed. Lebanese airspace… Read more »

Yeah I think maybe an attack submarine, that way they can quickly disappear without any retaliation and denial of responsibility.

A totally illegal act of aggression if confirmed. Israel or whoever may have to chew on the answer. These warmongers cannot ravage with impunity.

p.s. Nations with serious capabilities may decide to sell means to terrorist organisations. – For example.
