Israel strikes air base in central Syria, killing two servicemen, Syrian military says

Israeli missiles hit a major air base in Syria’s Homs province on Sunday, killing two servicemen and injuring three others, the Syrian military said via state news agency SANA.

Military sources said the air base, at Shayrat, was recently used by the Iranian airforce.

One military source, who was not authorised to speak publicly, said the strikes had targeted a runway in the sprawling air base that is located southeast of Homs city.
