Syrian State Media Reports Israeli Attack on Aleppo Airport

Israeli airstrikes hit the airport in Aleppo, Syria, paralyzing it early Tuesday, Syrian state media reported.

SANA news agency quoted a military source as saying the Israeli attack originated in the Mediterranean Sea, west of Latakia, and that it “caused material damage” at the airport.

There has been no word from the Israeli military, which rarely discusses individual strikes on targets in Syria.

Israel has admitted to targeting sites linked to militant groups allied to Iran, including Hezbollah, as well as arms shipments from Iran destined for militants in Syria and Lebanon. [uh/ab]
