Israeli Strikes Hit Key Air Base In Central Syria

Late on October 8, a series of Israeli strikes hit Syria’s largest air base, known as the T-4, in the eastern countryside of Homs.

In a statement to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), a Syrian military source revealed that the strikes were launched from the southeastern Syrian area of al-Tanf which has been occupied by the US-led coalition since 2016. The coalition maintains a garrison with some 200 troops in the area.

“At about 9:33 PM this evening the Israeli enemy carried out an air aggression from the direction of the military area of Al-Tanf with bursts of missiles towards the T-4 air base in the central region,” the unnamed source said.

Syria’s air-defenses fired at the incoming Israeli missiles. Several missiles were allegedly intercepted. Nevertheless, the air base was hit.

According to the SANA’s military source, six service members were wounded in the Israeli strikes. The T-4 air base also sustained material damage.

This was the first Israeli attack on T-4 air base, which is located in the heart of Syria, this year. On September 2 of last year, a series of Israeli strike damaged the base’s main runway and destroyed a radar site.

Iranian-backed forces are known to be stationed in T4 air base. In 2019, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps moved its main weapons supply center in Syria from Damascus International Airport to the base. On the same year, work to expand the base began.

The new attack on the T-4 was likely a part of Israel’s “War-Between-Wars” military campaign. The campaign is meant to push Iran and its allies out of Syria as well as to prevent them from developing their offensive capabilities. None of these goals have been achieved, yet.

From Israel with love – 2 Shia terrorists were sent straight to hell.

Syrian soldiers pay the price for Assad’s decision to keep the Iranian / Hezbollah presence, that is not of our concern.

GeoffreyRush

You are are only an Israeli facistic idiot.

Iron_Zion

Oh I am alot more than that, I have personally made sure some of them will never pose a risk to Israelis again, on several fronts.

I do think however we always go softly on them, if it was up to me I would have used a firepower like Russia has done in Grozny. In the end, the head of the snake sits in Tehran and sooner or later we will engage in a war that will remove them from power.

Chris Gr

Iranian militias should leave Syria. We helped them against the Soviets and now they are turning against us.

Iron_Zion

They could go home and have peace with their families, instead they are looking for a war with Israel on behalf of Iran. They will find only death here.

A.H.

so can you, parasites occupying Palestine. The zionist experiment in Palestine has to stop.

Chris Gr

We need to support our Aramean, Phoenician, Chaldean and Assyrian brothers against this imperialism!

Mike

Hel faget zion go back to posting job scams.

Jim Allen

You could stop pretending you belong there, and the promised land is your’s by God’s command. Which you do NOT have God’s permission to live there, even if you were an Israelite. You’re most certainly not. Your ancestor’s came from a different continent.

Augsta

Listen Iron Dickhead Palestine will soon be free you disgusting Zionist bastards will have to go back where you came from and that is HELL YOU INHUMAN SCUM…

Trotfox

You fucking scumbag zionist rats never had a home to go to, off to the showers with you.

Al nusrah air support. Pathetic.

Again, there is a guy here pretending to be me. I didn’t reply to your comment, although we don’t like Al Nusra either. So I’ll just write something in Hebrew so you guys know it’s me.

יום אחד ישראל תחליט שמספיק, ואז חמאס חיזבאללה ואירן יצטערו.

That was me. So, what do you gonna do?

Bully you are

Yes I am. So what are you going to do about it?

Come here in Greece. I lif weights and do kickboxing.

You are all fucking fake Jews. Sub-human filth

Chris Gr

Iran has supported several Al Qaeda factions in the past.

Gregory Rasputin

Rubbish. If you’re going to maintain such a lie, at the very least you should provide details of when, ever, did Iran support any alQaeda faction.

Chris Gr

Ansar al Islam in Iraqi Kurdistan against PJAK.

Jim Allen

Liar you are.

HB_norica

Iran has had military in Syria since June 2013. That’s 8 years or about twice as long as WW2 … it’s been 4 years since the Russians revived Syria’s air defence system .

If the IAF is soooo dominant why are the Iranians still in Syria at all? You have the latest invisible US jets while the SAA has mostly 1970’s Soviet SAM’s … how is it that in 4 years you still don’t have the air superiority to fly over Syria? Surely the first task the IAF would have in an air war is to take out Syrian air defences.

8 years after the threat of Iranian military operating on your borders and 4 years since the SAA jump starts their air defences and all the IAF can do is take pot shots from outside Syrian air space then scoot home … then you brag about killing a couple of Syrians … not destroying the air base or the Iranians ability to operate in Syria just 2 poor schmucks who happened to be in the wrong spot when a stray missile got through air defences.

Ahson

They can’t do anymore than these pussy attacks, which achieve absolutely nothing. Israel knows its limitations. Symbolic attacks is all they can do, whilst Russia and Iran fuckin gut the cornered Al-Nusra cunts in the streets like pigs.

Cromwell

Even so its time some ballistic missiles hit an Israeli airbase and Al Tanf was reduced to a pile of rat shit.

Iron_Zion

You need to thank the Russians for that, Israel can hit anywhere in Syria but we have an agreement with Moscow that we need to let them know when we operate so mistakes won’t happen and they support the SAA AD. It’s not a question of ability, it’s politics.

Diaper_Zion

Your big nose grows bigger every time you post 😂 Iran is screwing diaper wearing ZioNazis like pigs, these pussy strikes are your limitations boy, whilst Iran expands and expands… one wrong move and you’ll soul yourself again key board warrior 🤣

Robert

We killed your scientists right under your small nose, don’t talk about Israel capability please

Icarus Tanović

And we killed yours too. But you’re too scare to say that publicly.

Iron_Zion

Wrong buddy, Israel can make Iran bleed very hard it’s just a question of politics. If Biden fails to reach a new nuclear deal, then you will see the result from our side. So sit down and shut your mouth, the mullahs will get what they deserve.

Diaper_Zion

I’m not your buddy you big nose inbred 😂 these pussy strikes are your limitations, just remember when you step out of line Iran exposes your mangina and penetrates you like that ship a few months ago, boy 🤣 heard your orc PM complaining to US to hit back lol

Trotfox

The nazis were right about about you sub-humans, pity they didn’t get the chance to finish the job.

HB_norica

Ahhh … so your excuse is you’re gentlemen.

Why on earth then do you bother risking pilots, wearing out engines and airframes and spending $$$ millions on ordinance when you’ve entered into agreements that guarantees your strikes are ineffective? Are these training missions or does someone with suction hold stock in Lockmart?

Iron_Zion

Our airstrikes are pinpoint accurate and we have destroyed many Iranian shipments. believe it or not, it is also Russia’s interest to kick them out so Israel and Syria might reach an agreement one day.

For now, it goes on.

Icarus Tanović

We have 7 of 8 launched bombs downed. You think about that, because every single small diameter bomb costs 400.000 dollars, and rocket we used costs 14.000 euros. Now go ahead and calculate that.
Your firecrackers that weights 150kg costs a lot American taxpayers money.
I wander who’s watching me now! Who? The IRS!

You Funny boy.

RaptarDriver

You destroy mostly civilians and infrastructure, that is you’re M.O.

HB_norica

“Pinpoint accurate” ??? If you’re so good how after 4 years of raids is there even an airport in Damascus let alone SAA air defences and Iranians. Do the math weapons load of IAF aircraft x number of aircraft in a raid x number of raids / yr x 4 years = a moderate sized nuke dropped on the Damascus airport with “pinpoint accuracy”. Plus the Iranians say they supply Syria over land through Iraq … how is that even possible with the USA in Iraq? You can make all the claims you want but the very fact that Iranians are able to supply themselves with weapons and ordinance to field units capable of combined arms warfare says bullshit.

“it is also Russia’s interest to kick them out so Israel and Syria might reach an agreement one day.”

Perhaps they are betting that the 2800 year old culture with a population the size of Germany living in easily defended mountains rich in natural resources has more staying power than the 75 year old country of 10 million built on a strip of disputed desert.

This degenerate is actually right.
They do have an agreement as he says and the Russians are complicit in all Israeli strikes.

Cromwell

By mentioning Shia we know where you are coming from you piece of wahabi slime,it always comes down to religion with you animals,you are so stupid you can’t see thats how the Empire controlls you,they turn you against your own people,you retarded Ape.

Gregory Rasputin

The pos doesn’t know that the Shia population of Syria pre-war was less than 4% with the Sunni population being approx 67%, the Alawite population being approx 15% and the Christian population being approx 14%.

Icarus Tanović

Alright my man, alright, hats down.

rafik

When the dog in its last leg . he keep jumping here and there but in the end dog dies with death of street dog in gutter crush buy many vehilce. same thing is happening with you and your zionist/Whabhi scum . have patien and look at your master dying slowly with thier own hand. Hezbollah made sure that israel and US will not attack iran oil tanker and it dint happen. bcuz US/Israel already started pissing thier pant when Nashrallah warn them. zionist are such a cowards.

Iron_Zion

Why do we want to prevent Lebanese people from oil? we even let Gazans have oil. The crises there can affect us and we don’t want them coming here, so it was the right thing to do. About Nasrallah, he is dead scared in his bunker and he knows why.

Icarus Tanović

Simply don’t lie. No more Harriri, no beef no more. You know very well who’s gonna wreck f35s.

Dogs are noble creatures and are sentient.
The same cannot be said of those who you are comparing them to.

Séamus

Your days for crowing are about over, your main backer…the country you sponge of all the time, is bankrupt and in a decrepit state. You are surrounded by countries you constantly antagonise, bomb and kill….retribution will come, swift and fast and the cesspit called Israel, the illegal squatter on Palestinian soil will no longer exist…..the wise ones are already fleeing.

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

If I were you I would be a lot more worried about the poison jabs forced down your throat than Iran.

Ricky Miller

What price? The attack was another failure, only one missile got through causing ho-hum damage that is not militarily significant. The need for Israel to try an attack is evidence that all her previous strikes haven’t accomplished their goals. Syria needed assistance from others, including Iran, because of the illegal regime change operation/invasion that Israel herself participated in. Israel earned Iranian encroachment because of her own choices.

Rhodium 10

9 years more than 1.000 missile and sorry but you can see in Google Earth that not damage have been inflicted in T-4, Mezzeh, Damascus airport, Al Safira reserch center, Mysaf complex, Al Kiswah…etc…

Markus

Too funny, even for teenage troll babble.

diaperhead _ziontrash, you are a fkn joke on SF.

Chris Gr

If Sisi, Kadhimi, Jordan, UAE and Saudi Arabia fall then we Greeks will have serious problems in the Mediterranean.

Dennis Kovac

No my friend. USA is pushing all countries to be slaves. Who is ruling USA, except Biden. All Jews around him. Greece is pushed to allow Zio to build gas pipeline to EU. Israeli is pushing USA to” occupy ” Greece. Then you have Erdogan, Zio puppet who is only talking empty words. Palestinians are suffering a lot and who is the true friend of Palestine. All puppets countries are afraid of USA and sanctions according to Zio wishes in USA. Even Zio is controlling USA and its war equipment… My friend Greece problem are USA and Israel, no Muslim countries

Chris Gr

Erdogan is enemy of Greeks and Israelis.

Icarus Tanović

No, he’s your best friend.

And Russia accepts that. It means something.

The Al Tanf days of it being a US/nato/isreali outpost are numbered. It’s my guess that the Iranian’s will be clearing the south and the Iraqi border, along with Iraqi militia, while the SAA concentrate on liberating Idlib.

The Flop-35 wont dare to get in the air anymore, they can only rely on small backstabbing.
Typical nazi tactics.

“Several missiles were allegedly intercepted. Nevertheless, the air base was hit.” I hear this for years..

The Russians knew this was coming and does nothing about it.
