The air defense units of the Syrian army responded to the Israeli aggression over the airspace of Palmyra, Syria’s official news agency reported on Monday night.
“A number of enemy’s missiles have been shot down” by the Syrian air defenses, SANA quoted its correspondent as saying.
Israeli media claim that the target site was the T4 base in Homs, a base that Israel had attacked a number of times in the past.
Beirut-based Al Mayadeen TV channel also reports that “the Israeli attack was aimed at military targets in the northern airport of Palmyra.”
The Israeli attack was reportedly carried out shortly after 11 pm in the Homs region, approximately 150 km west of Palmyra.
In late March, the Syrian army had intercepted a number of missiles fired by Israeli warplanes in the same province.
In the March 31 incident, the Israeli missiles violated the Lebanese airspace before being confronted by the Syrian army air defenses.
