Hezbollah terrorists evacuate posts in Syria anticipating US attack
Hezbollah terrorists have evacuated their positions nearby Tiyas Military Airbase in Homs, Syria, anticipating an imminent  US attack.

The Syrian government, backed by Russia and Iran, has blamed Israel for a deadly attack on a Syrian military airport on Monday.

Monday's attack hit the Tiyas airbase, known as T4, near the city of Homs, west of the ancient city of Palmyra, and is the largest airbase in the country, resulted in the death of 14 people, including Iranian militants.

Israel, which has previously hit Syrian targets, has not commented. Syria initially blamed the US for the strike.

The incident comes amid international alarm over an alleged chemical attack on a Syrian rebel-held town. The US and France had threatened to respond.

US President Donald Trump said there would be a "big price to pay" for the alleged chemical attack in Douma, in the Eastern Ghouta region, near the capital Damascus. He branded Syria's President Bashar al-Assad an "animal".
