Earlier today, Al-Masdar News learned of the Russian Air Force’s plans to use the T-4 Military Airport to launch attacks against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in eastern Syria.

With help from geo-location expert, Aldin Abazovic (@Ald_Aba), Al-Masdar was able to obtain the exact location of this runway at the T-4 Militaary Airport in east Homs.

The Russian Air Force was unable to use this airfield for several months due to the threat posed by the Islamic State terrorists near the Al-Sha’er region.
