Syria accuses Israel of striking Aleppo airport, Damascus


Syrian state media reported two strikes on the airport in Syria’s capital of Aleppo on Wednesday, and later in Damascus, which were attributed to Israel. 

“At nearly 8 p.m., the Israeli enemy targeted Aleppo International Airport with a missile strike that caused material damage to the airport,” a military source told Syrian state news agency SANA late in the day.

“Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city,
And it will be a ruinous heap.” Isaiah 17:1

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based opposition war monitor, reported that this is the 23rd such attack in Syria in 2022 and that the one near the capital came about an hour after the one at the airport. 

“Four Israeli shells hit a runway of the Aleppo International Airport and warehouses in its vicinity, causing fire and explosions to erupt, likely to be due to the explosion of a batch of Iranian missiles,” the observatory said.

It also claimed that Russian and regime forces were positioned at the airport. Furthermore, the Russians knew about the upcoming alleged Israeli airstrikes and had begun mobilizing 10 minutes before the attack, according to the observatory.
