Israel has not commented, but a former commander of the Israeli Air Force has said it was almost certainly Israel that carried out the strike.
The strike comes two days after activists said a suspected chemical attack in Douma killed dozens.
US President Donald Trump vowed a response in the next two days to the "atrocious" suspected chemical strike.
The T-4 base, located in a strategic position between the cities of Homs and Palmyra in Syria's west, has been a key staging ground for Syrian and Russian aircraft during the war.

The Defense Ministry said Syrian defense units destroyed five of the incoming missiles.
The Lebanese Army issued a statement alleging a number of violations of Lebanese airspace by Israeli aircraft between Sunday and Monday.
Israeli officials have not issued any response to reports of the strike, but its warplanes hit the same facility in February, after Israel said an Iranian drone had infiltrated its airspace.
Israeli officials said Iran, a key backer of the Syrian government, was using the T-4 facility as a command center.
