Israel on Monday launched an attack on the T-4 Air Base in Syria's central province of Homs, the media reported.

The Syrian air defences have "confronted" the attack on Sunday against the air base in the eastern countryside of Homs, SANA news agency reported.

Citing a military source, Syrian state media said that the military air defenses shot down missiles targeting the T4 air base in Homs province in an act of “aggression” attributed to Israel.

“Our air defense systems thwarted an Israeli aggression and brought down a number of missiles that were targeting the T4 airport,” it cited the military source as saying.

The air defenses hit one of the “attacking planes and forced the rest to leave” Syria’s air space, it added.

Israel has carried out several attacks on this specific air base in the past, claiming it was targeting Iranian fighters and weapons.
