Russia says Israel was behind Syria airstrike
April 9, 2018 -- Russia and the Syrian government have blamed Israel for an attack on a Syrian military airbase in which at least 14 people were killed. Monday’s attack hit the Tiyas airbase, known as T4, near the city of Homs.
Israel, which has previously hit Syrian targets, has not commented. Syria initially said it suspected the U.S. was responsible for the air strike.
The incident comes amid international alarm over an alleged chemical attack on a Syrian rebel-held town.
The U.S. and France had threatened to respond to the alleged chemical attack in Douma, in the Eastern Ghouta region, near the capital Damascus.
