BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 P.M.) – Several missiles targeted the T-4 Military Airport in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, a source told Al-Masdar News from Damascus.

According to the source, a number of explosions were heard at the airbase after some of the missiles managed to hit their intended targets.

He would add that while some of the missiles did hit the base, the Syrian air defenses were able to intercept a number of the projectiles after they were fired from a suspected Israeli aircraft.

While there is no confirmation about who is behind the attack, field reporters are claiming the missiles were fired from an aircraft that entered the government areas from the SDF-held territories.

The T-4 Airbase houses both Iranian and Russian soldiers; it has been targeted by the Israeli Armed Forces on a number of occasions in the past.

The Iranian S-300 system is believed to be active at this base; however, there is no confirmation that it has been used in tonight’s attack.

Last time someone did, 29 batteries on 30 were demolished and Syria lost half of her air-to-air capable jet fighters…
This is still known as the Beka’a Valley Turkey Shooting…
I agree that Lebanon must grow ball in order to enforce UNSC Res.1701 which orders the disarmament of ALL Lebanese militias.
High time for Tsahal to do a Soleimani on Nasrallah.

More information is required to have a realistic picture of this. Why didn’t S-300 fire to the plane ? Why didn’t Russia led to know Syria about this attack (Russia intelligence has the capability to see everything since the beginning) ? Is Russia air defense system given to Syria too bad ?
