Israel 'behind attack on Syrian airbase that killed Iranian soldiers'

Syrian soldiers gather on the outskirts of Douma as they continue their fierce offensive to retake the last opposition holdout in Eastern Ghouta

It said the attack left people dead and wounded.

The air strike on the Tiyas military airbase in Homs is not thought to be directly related.

Shrine defenders is a phrase that Iran uses for its advisers sent to Syria to aid the Syrian army against terrorists.

Photo released by Iranian media reportedly show the T-4 air base in central Syria after a missile barrage Monday.

Unconfirmed reports also suggest the presence of Iranian forces at the base.

The Syrian regime said the base was attacked at around 4.00 a.m. local time (0200GMT) and there were reports of casualties.

US President Donald Trump earlier blamed the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma on Russian Federation and Iran, citing their support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. A larger one would run the risk of confrontation with Iran and Russian Federation, who have both repeatedly expressed their desire to see the United States leave Syria.

Israel has not commented on the latest missile attack. Israel has neither confirmed nor denied launching the attack.

But once de Villers returned to the pavilion, the Bangalore franchise lost their way as wickets fell in quick succession. Within two balls, Rana claimed world cricket's two-most destructive batsmen and set Kolkata on a course for victory.

Syria denies ever using chemical weapons during the war and says it eliminated its chemical arsenal under a 2013 agreement brokered by the US and Russian Federation. "Big price to pay", he said.

He also offered congratulations on the achievements realized by the Syrian Arab Army in Eastern Ghouta.

Damascus and its allies have denounced the accusations, the government brushing them off as an "unconvincing broken record".

Tehran warned any military intervention would "certainly complicate the situation" in Syria and the wider region.

"The Zionist regime and the U.S. have in different stages rushed to the scene to boost the morale of terrorists", he said, according to Iran's Press TV. Iran insists its soldiers are only in Syria in an advisory role, but hundreds have been killed since the civil war began in 2011.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran, as one of the victims of chemical weapons, strongly condemns the use of such weapons by any party and anywhere in the world based on its principled policies and religious and moral teachings", Qassemi said in a Sunday statement.

The OPCW's fact-finding mission for Syria was established in April 2014 to confirm chemical weapons use, but it does not have the mandate to establish who is responsible.
