  • T4 airbase

The Russian Defense Ministry has stated that two Israeli warplanes have attacked a Syrian government T-4 airbase in the Homs province early on Monday, April 9, according to Sputnik International.

For his part, Muallem briefed the Iranian official on the latest political developments in Syria, saying that "we appreciate the valuable support of the Islamic Republic of Iran for Syria in all fields".

The attack at the airbase, located 40km west of Palmyra, killed and wounded several people, Syrian state news agency SANA reported. Isaac Herzog is the leader of Israel's Zionist Union opposition party.

Israel has neither confirmed nor denied carrying out the attack. "Iran is a risky and serious enemy that should not be underestimated", Zeev Elkin, a member of the security forum, said on Army Radio before it convened.

Verstappen believes that if the roles were reversed, Hamilton would not have been happy in his position. This miscalculation led to Verstappen striking Hamilton as he attempted to avoid Alonso.

Also on Tuesday, Israeli Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan told the Hebrew-language Ynet news site that Israel's ties with Russian Federation are "very important", but "we have to adhere to our policy and not allow the Iranian enemy to cross our red lines". "Israel is determined not to let them do that".

Moscow bureau chief Anton Troianovski describes Russia's increasing tensions with the US and how state media outlets are covering the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria.

Tehran, he said, aimed to deter Israel from continuing to strike Iranian forces in Syria. In practice, this push includes not just fighting Iranian military presence in Syria, but Shi'ites in general. That strike came after Israel downed an Iranian drone that strayed into its territory. "The second trend is Israel's feeling that neither Washington nor Moscow are willing to do anything about it, which in turn forces Israel to take additional risks".
