The Israel Air Force attacked the T-4 (Tiyas) air base this past April, destroying a military drone center that had sent a military attack drone packed with explosives into Israeli territory.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, said the missiles targeted Iranian troops and non-Syrian pro-Iranian fighters.

Syrian state media said the country's air defense missiles were launched at Israeli warplanes entering its airspace from Jordan, thus foiling an attack on the T-4 air base, also known as Tayfur Military Airbase.

Israel has made it clear that it is determined to continue undermining Iranian efforts to entrench itself militarily in Syria and will do whatever it takes to stop the transfer of game-changing weapons to Hezbollah. "It was the first time we attacked live Iranian targets - both facilities and people", he said.

The air defences hit one of the "attacking planes and forced the rest to leave" Syrian air space, it added. The Syrian government has repeatedly condemned the Israeli aggression and warned about its unsafe repercussions.

In May, there was an unprecedented escalation between Israel and Iran in Syria, with the Israeli army claiming it hit dozens of Iranian military targets across the border in response to what it said were rockets fired by Iranians at the occupied Golan Heights.

Prior to the strike on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu again demanded that Iran retreat from Syria, a position he will pursue when he meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin this week.

The base, where Iranian forces and Lebanese "Hezbollah" fighters are believed to be stationed, was repeatedly targeted in the past few months.
