20 cruise missiles fired at Syria's T-4 base - reports
According to Syrian Digital Media, up to twenty cruise missiles may have been fired at the Syrian military's T-4 airbase in eastern Homs province on the night of Sunday to Monday.
The same source added that personnel at the T-4 airbase were warned at least five minutes before the first impacts and that a number of missiles struck positions in and around the military installation.
As mentioned earlier, the Syrian military claims to have intercepted eight missiles without stating how many were fired at the T-4 site as part of the total salvo.
Although still unofficial, it appears that the missile strike was conducted by Israeli warplanes via Lebanese airspace; this suspicion is reinforced by the fact that Israeli forces have attacked the T-4 airbase before due to the reported presence of Hezbollah and Iranian assets at it.
