BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – The Russian Ministry of Defence has released information stating that Israeli forces were
responsible for attacking the Syrian military’s T-4 airbase in eastern Homs province on early Monday morning.

According to the Russian MoD, two Israeli F-15 warplanes were involved in the attack against Syria’s T-4 military
airport, having fired missiles at the site from Lebanese airspace.

Furthermore, the Russian MoD claims that eight missiles were fired by Israeli aircraft (compared to earlier reports of
20 missiles being used in the attack) of which Syrian air defense units were able to intercept five; of the three
missiles that did reach the T-4 airbase, all struck its western side.

With the US and France having denied any involvement in the attack, and Russia and Syria pinning the blame on Israel,
Israeli military authorities are, for their part, still yet to comment on the strikes.
