(News Desk) – Syrian air defenses have thwarted a missile attack on the T4 airbase in the country’s central province of Homs.
According to the Syria’s official news agency SANA on Sunday, the source of the downed missiles was from south of the Tanf region.
“Our air defenses are responding to an Israeli aggression and intercepting a number of missiles targeting the airport, hitting one of the attacking planes and forcing the rest to leave the airspace,” added a military source.
In June, Two Israeli missiles hit a location near the Syrian capital Damascus’ international airport, reported Syrian state media.
The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed the incident claiming that the missiles had targeted an Hezbollah arms depot located close to the airport.
The Tel Aviv regime has recently increased its airstrikes in the Arab nation. The Syrian government has on multiple occasions slammed the Israeli regimes aggression actions and also warned about the “dangerous repercussions” of Israeli assaults on its territories.
Israel is widely believed to have been providing weapons to anti-Damascus militants as well as medical treatment to Takfiri elements wounded in Syria inside the occupied Golan Heights.
