Moscow calls for meeting with Israeli ambassador after T4 Airbase strike

Syria Reuters

Earlier on Monday, Russia's military said that two Israeli F-15 fighter jets struck the T-4 military airbase in Homs, Syria. "I hope at least that the USA military and those of the countries participating in the coalition led by the United States understand that", Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Monday at a press conference.

Israel did not officially comment on the attack. "The State of Israel presents an object of admiration for the entire world", Erdan said, Israel Radio reports.

President Donald Trump had said Sunday that there would be a "big price to pay" for the attack that killed dozens of people in Douma outside Damascus, according to local medical personnel.

Russian Federation summoned the Israeli ambassador to Moscow on Tuesday, a day after the Kremlin condemned the alleged Israeli attack on an Syrian airbase, Israel's Foreign Ministry said.

Syrian forces were able to shoot down five of the eight missiles, according to the defense ministry.

A Syrian medical relief group said more than 1,000 people were injured in the chemical attack.

Syrian rescuers from the White Helmets documented 42 fatalities in Saturday's reported chemical attack but were impeded from searching further by strong odours that caused breathing difficulties, said Siraj Mahmoud, a spokesman for the group. Among them was a young man who appeared to have died foaming at the mouth and clutching his child. But it said the suffocations were the result of shelters collapsing on people inside them.

"The army, which is advancing rapidly and with determination, does not need to use any kind of chemical agents", the statement said.

Lieberman did not confirm Israel carried out Monday's deadly strikes, which Syria and Russian Federation blamed on Israel.

Russia's Tass news agency reported Sunday that 8,000 fighters would be allowed to leave Douma for other opposition-held areas in northern Syria.

In recent weeks, government forces have recaptured villages and towns in the eastern Ghouta suburbs of the capital.

Meanwhile, the Syrian opposition blamed the Saturday's suspected chemical attack in the town of Douma on government forces. The U.S. threatened military action but later backed down.

Syrian war monitors say government forces and their allies are on alert and taking precautionary measures at military bases and posts across the country amid fears of a military attack by the United States.
