(Worthy News) - Syria on Sunday accused Israel of targeting an air base in the central Homs province known to be operated by Iranian forces, claiming that its air defenses were activated in response to the attack and hit an Israeli jet.

Syrian state media said the country's air defense missiles were launched at Israeli warplanes entering its airspace from Jordan, thus foiling an attack on the T-4 air base, also known as Tayfur Military Airbase.

"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," the official SANA news agency quoted a military source as saying. [ Source: i24 (Read More...) ]
