Conflicts A- A A+

Russian publication Avia.Pro said Russia’s warplanes intercepted the Israeli warplanes that were tried to attack the T-4 Airbase in Syria's western province of Homs last week, Eurasia Diary reports citing Press TV.

According to the report, two Russian Su-35 fighters took off from the Hmeimim Airbase in Syria's western coastal province of Latakia to intercept the Israeli warplanes. 

Israel has carried out hundreds of airstrikes in Syria, including in the Golan Heights, most of them against what the Tel Aviv regime claims to be the positions of pro-Syrian forces.

The Syrian military has mostly repelled the Israeli strikes, shooting down most of the incoming rockets. 

In early 2018, Syria targeted and shot down at least one Israeli F-16 that had intruded into its airspace.

Syria has called on the United Nations to adopt necessary measures to stop Israel’s repeated acts of military aggression on the Arab country.
