Syria’s air defence confronted an aerial aggression from Israel that targeted an air base in the country’s centre yesterday, Syrian state media reported quoting a military official.

The official, quoted by the state news agency, said the attack targeted the T-4 air base in Homs province shortly after 10 p.m. local time. The official said, the attack only caused material damage to the base, saying most rockets were intercepted while only four landed in the targeted area. There was no immediate Israeli comment. The attack comes during heightened tension after the recent escalation between the US and Iran, Damascus’ main ally in the region.
