Syrian media report Israel air strike on T-4 airbase

The Syrian SANA described an air strike on Sunday night, July 8, that targeted the big T-4 air base, which houses Iranian forces, near Tiyas in the Homs region. It was attributed to Israeli warplanes, purportedly flying into Syria from Jordan in the south, through Al-Tanf, where the US has an outpost. They were said to be flying low to evade detection. These reports have not been confirmed. A Syrian army officer said that the Syrian air defense system fired several S-200 missiles to take down the Israeli jet after it entered Syrian air space, but the warplane successfully evaded the attack.

DEBKAfile’s military sources note the confused Syrian accounts of the incident – if indeed it happened. It may well be an Assad regime ploy to implicate US, Israel and Jordan as collaborating to derail the ceasefire agreement the Russians obtained over the weekend with the rebels under attack in southern Syria. It sounded as Damascus wanted to discourage Russian President Vladimir Putin from seeking any kind of deal on Syria at his meetings with President Donald Trump in Helsinki on July 16 or with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in Moscow on July 11, alleging that all they both want is stir the pot and keep the military confrontation on the boil.
For lack of evidence, it can’t yet be said for sure whether the air strike against T-4 actually happened, or was the invention of Syrian propagandists.

    All Iranian bases in Syria are by error placed in locations prone to explosions.
    It is because of glitches in the Feng Shui fields and aggravated with missing good harmony with the nature around. The good Feng Shui for an Iranian base could be found only in Iran.

    Why take the risk of many more to come mysterious explosions for just a fancy ayatollah dream?

      We would like a poetry on the incident

      • Jul 9, 2018 @ 8:35 at 8:35

        A haiku:

        Syria, Persia fight on;
        Jewish State prepares
        to wipe them both out !

          So now you want to wipe countries off the planet…..look how far you come little minions….look how far you have come…..

            @ “Jam the distress frequencies”,

            It’s Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the PLO which want to do just that.
            It sounds like you have too many of those frequencies already jammed.

            Of course dribbling dick… this is called get your enemy before they get you…grow a brain and stop with the feigned moral equivalence. iran and your muslim friends are blood thirsty butchers you people have a book full of instructions on how to do it properly – just piss off

      Love this answer, and it makes a lot of sense.

      • Jul 9, 2018 @ 11:15 at 11:15

        My reply is in regard to the comment about the better feng shui for an Iranian base being in Iran, but they do need a new regime there, too.

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 0:55 at 0:55

    Hopefully, the attack did take place – and all the targets destroyed…

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 1:55 at 1:55

    It was the Saudis with other Gulf states involved…the Sunnis have finally stepped into the war against the Shia full bore.

      @ The guy formerly known as Anonymous,

      That still remains to be seen- – – – – – – – – – – – just not too convinced of that yet.

    Altanif is in the east of syria, how come israel attack that base from the east? It was US coalition. I think syrian media said it was idf because they want to respond this attack with firing missiles against israel

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 2:15 at 2:15

    Deceitful click-bait headline

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 4:02 at 4:02

    To my knowledge, I don’t think Israel has ever used that route to attack. It doesn’t make sense. Nor do I think Syria would be firing missiles over Al Tanf. Trump busted their ass a couple of times over that base. I smell a rat here.

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 4:44 at 4:44

    Whatever the source of action finish off those Iranians

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 5:14 at 5:14

    Every time the Syrian/ Russian / systems are activated and attempt to lock on to “targets”, the US and Israel learn a little more. How good is the system? How good are the people running it? How long does it take them to adjust to different attack issues? Valuable information for when the time comes to take it all out.

    • Jul 9, 2018 @ 13:03 at 13:03

      This is something I think a lot of folk are not thinking about.

      Some of the hardware and missions may have more to do with collecting intel on the other actors rather than on the tactical effect of the mission.

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 5:25 at 5:25

    Israel never bombs same base twice, tis like roobing same bank twice… 1000% fake

    • Jul 9, 2018 @ 15:10 at 15:10


      The IDF let the Iranians stack up > $100 million worth of missiles and drones in a warehouse then they “BOOM” it.
      Then they allow the Iranians to build a new warehouse, then fill it up again. Then guess what? “BOOM 2”
      Rinse repeat.
      If the IDF do not like the look of anything on a manifest that leaves Iran they “BOOM” the delivery plane on the runway before it unloads.
      Each time Israel blows up an Iranian base it costs them around $2 to $5 million in missiles.

      Now look at Israel and Iran’s currencies to understand their ability to buy more foreign missiles:

      Israel currency: $1 = 3.6 Shekels
      Iran Currency: $1 = 42,927 Rials

      Iran Currency: 1 World of Warcraft (video game virtual currency ) Gold = 290 Rials (more tomorrow)

      ROFLMAO Virtual wow gold is nearly 300 times more valuable than the Iranian rial…they lost already

      • Jul 10, 2018 @ 15:09 at 15:09

        There is no warehouses of weapons do think Iran are stupid or what ? ISISrarl is hitting Syrian army positions….honestly I do not know is dummer Israelis or Americans..dumb as planks..

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 5:39 at 5:39

    Israel needs to continue removing the Iranian & Hezballah threats in Syria.

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 10:02 at 10:02

    Great news! Hell yeah!

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 11:02 at 11:02

    “You go ISIS……Israel is with you….”

    @ “Jam the distress frequencies”,

    It’s more like Afghanistan and Pakistan are with you (ISIS).
    Common sense is what’s being jammed here rather than the distress frequencies.

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 11:26 at 11:26

    “But if you take the Syrian army out who is going to fight the deadly ISIS ?….I forgot you are fcuking ISIS……get the hell out of Syria and take those Yankee retards with you …..dumb as planks”

    @ “Jam the distress frequencies”,

    Look out your living room window—————is it a nice day in Tehran today?
    BTW, that’s a nice “show name” your Iranian handlers gave you.

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 12:31 at 12:31

    Syrians also claim one Israeli jet fighter down and several israeli missiles hit by defense rockets.
    If this is not an Israeli attack, I am afraid ISIS has acquired warplanes.

    • Jul 9, 2018 @ 15:12 at 15:12

      Could be:

  • Jul 9, 2018 @ 17:06 at 17:06

    Why would you believe Syria’s claim to have shot down a plane? Oh and by the way from Israel’s standpoint the “enemy of my enemy, IS STILL MY ENEMY.” So why you so worried about ISIS?

    • Jul 10, 2018 @ 15:11 at 15:11

      But I though ISIS attacked America Europe…Paris….Marselilke and now all of a fucking sudden they ate not a threat ….you people are fucking delusional at best…and dangerously dumb as planks……May God sabve your lost souls
