BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 A.M.) – At approximately 11:00 P.M. (local time) this evening, several airstrikes targeted the Syrian military’s positions at the outskirts of Aleppo city.
According to the Syrian military, the aerial division of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) was behind this evening’s airstrikes that saw many sites targeted in Aleppo.
Following an attack on the Sheikh Najjar District in eastern Aleppo, the Israeli Air Force began targeting sites around the Nayrab Airbase and Aleppo International Airport.
The Syrian military said they managed to down several of the hostile missiles; however, they did say a number of other projectiles did reach their intended targets at Sheikh Najjar, Nayrab, and the Aleppo Airport area.
If Israel is indeed behind this attack, this would be the second time in the last year that they have launched airstrikes on the Aleppo Governorate.
Last year’s attack by the Israeli Air Force caught the Syrian military by surprise, as the former’s F-35 jets went undetected from the Lebanese border to the Aleppo Governorate.
