According to the media reports, an airbase in Syria’s Homs province has been attacked by “several missiles” in a “likely attack by the US”.
The Tayfur airbase, also known as T4, is located in a strategic position between the cities of Homs and Palmyra, reports CNN. Citing a military source, the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) said the attack had caused an unspecified number of deaths and injuries.
It said the airfield was targeted with several missiles. The Syrian air defence had responded and shot down eight incoming missiles, the agency added. Video footage on social media in Lebanon showed aircraft or missiles flying low over the country, apparently heading east towards Syria.
