Israel has again disabled the Syrian airports of Damascus and Aleppo, damaging the runways with a missile strike. According to the Syrian news SANA agency, aircraft takeoff and landing at these airports is not possible.
The Israeli aviation dealt another blow to Syria, damaging the runways of two airports in Damascus and Aleppo. According to the Syrian Ministry of Defense, Israeli fighter jets approached the target in the morning from the Mediterranean Sea, without entering Syrian airspace. Both airports were out of action for a long time. A rocket attack in Damascus reportedly killed one airport worker and injured another. In Aleppo, at least 4 missiles hit the airport, some of them were shot down. No other details available.
This morning at approximately 05:25, the Israeli enemy carried out a simultaneous air aggression with salvos of missiles from the Mediterranean Sea west of Latakia and from the occupied Syrian Golan, striking Damascus and Aleppo international airports. Physical damage to the runways of two airports led to their inoperability
- the Syrian military department said in a statement.
It is noted that this is not the first strike in recent days on the airports of Damascus and Aleppo; Israel is not allowing the Syrians to restore the operation of these air harbors. For now, all flights from them have been transferred to Latakia.
Syria is on the side of Hamas, supporting the actions of the Palestinian group. At the same time, the Syrian army is not participating in hostilities against the Israeli army. Damascus provides its territory for the deployment of pro-Iranian groups, which become targets for Israeli aircraft. Israel fears Iran is using Syria as a springboard for an attack.
