Alleged Israeli airstrikes target Syrian airports for second time in week


Alleged Israeli airstrikes targeted the Aleppo and Deir al Zor airports in northern Syria on Tuesday night, according to Syrian state news agency SANA.

According to SANA, the airstrikes were carried out from over the Mediterranean Sea from the direction of Latakia and damaged the airport’s runway, putting it out of service.

The strikes come less than a week after alleged Israeli airstrikes targeted the international airport in Aleppo in northern Syria and sites near Damascus, including the international airport in the city.

“Then behold, at eventide, trouble! And before the morning, he is no more.
This is the portion of those who plunder us, And the lot of those who rob us.” Isaiah 17:14

Those airstrikes came less than a week after alleged Israeli airstrikes targeted the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC) in Masyaf, located southwest of Aleppo. Two civilians were reportedly injured in the strikes and material damage was caused. The strikes sparked a number of fires.

Satellite imagery from Planet showed large areas around the SSRC in Masyaf damaged by fires. According to Syrian reports, secondary explosions continued for hours after the strikes along with blazes caused by the strikes. Local residents were reportedly instructed to shelter in place until the fires were brought under control.

While a number of alleged Israeli airstrikes have targeted sites near Aleppo in years, the last alleged Israeli airstrike that targeted the airport before the strike last week was reported in 2019.
