Israeli forces bombed targets in and around Syria's T-4 airbase two months ago, after an Iranian drone controlled from the base entered Israeli airspace.

Syrian news agency SANA reported that eight of the missiles fired by Israel were downed but some got through resulting in what one military source said were "martyrs and wounded".

The slain militia were identified as Ammar Mousavi, Akbar Zavar Jannati and Mehdi Lotfi Naysar. At least 40 people have died in the chemical weapons attack.

A missile strike on an air base in central Syria was carried out by Israeli warplanes in the early hours of Monday morning causing multiple casualties, according to the Syrian and Russian governments, amid fears of renewed regional confrontation.

"Tel Aviv is now more involved in the Syrian developments and would benefit from the worldwide mobilization against (regime chief Bashar) Assad", he said, adding that Israel is keen on stopping the Iranian expansion in the region and on preventing the presence in Syria and Lebanon of Iranian missiles that threaten Israel's national security.

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