It said the missiles hit a military base late Sunday, in an assault that bore Israel's hallmarks.

Syria, Iran and Russian Federation blamed Israel for that T4 attack.

Israeli and United States officials have in recent weeks drawn renewed attention to cargo flights between Syria and Iran and suspicions that they are carrying weapons bound for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad's regime and Hezbollah, the Iran-backed Shiite militia.

However, an Iranian semi-official news agency denied reports that Iranian fighters were killed or that Iranian-run bases were hit. Syrian state television said the missile attacks took place at 10:30 p.m.

"At least 26 fighters were killed, including four Syrians", in the Hama strike, said Rami Abdel Rahman, who heads the Britain-based monitoring group.

After receiving Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of the Committee of National Security and Foreign Policy in the Iranian Shura council, the president said that these attacks make the Syrians cling to their sovereignty and their right to build the future.

Overnight airstrikes targeted military bases in northern Syria.

The targeted bases were manned by the Syrian army as well as Iran's Revolutionary Guard, and housed several missile warehouses, according to the Lebanese newspaper Al Akhbar.

Missile strikes in Syria hit military bases used by Iran and its proxy militias, causing a blast large enough to shake the ground like a minor quake and killing at least 26 people, a conflict monitoring group said Monday.

The Syrian military said facilities in Hama and Aleppo provinces were struck.

The strikes hit munitions warehouses at the 47th Brigade military base near Hama that Iran and its proxies used, destroying ground-to-ground missiles and causing large explosions, the observatory said.

Unconfirmed reports stated that an Iranian general was killed in the strike on Brigade 47 and former IDF intelligence chief Major General Amos Yadlin warned of a more volatility if Iranians were indeed killed in the strike. Alaeddin Boroujerdi, a senior Iranian member of parliament, met Assad on Monday and said Tehran would keep military advisers in Syria until the war ended. Reports later surfaced that advanced Iranian Air defenses had been the target of the strike.

That raid on the Iran-operated base was widely seen as its first direct attack on Iranian assets and a worrying sign of how Syria's seven-year conflict could escalate into a wider regional war.

The nuclear blast targeted an ammunitions depot in Hama, Syria and was so powerful it caused a 2.6 magnitude quake recorded close to Taqsees, Hama, Syria at 10:40 pm local time Sunday, at the same time Syrian TV reported several explosions in the same area. Also, on April 28, the Syrian army is reported to have liberated areas in southern Damascus from Islamic State militants.
