An Israeli airstrike hit Syria’s Aleppo International Airport early Tuesday, damaging the runway and putting the airport out of service, Syria’s news agency SANA reported.
“At 2:07 a.m., the Israeli enemy carried out an air attack from the sea towards the international airport in Aleppo, which caused material damage to it, and as a result it was not operating,” a Syrian military source told SANA.
So far, there have been no reports of any casualties in the strike. Israel hasn’t commented on the incident and typically doesn’t take credit for individual airstrikes in Syria.
The strike comes about a month after a devastating earthquake hit northwest Syria and Turkey, which severely damaged Aleppo. BBC journalists traveled to the city after the earthquake and reported tens of thousands of people had lost their homes, hundreds had died, and hospitals were overflowing with patients.
Since the earthquake hit Syria, the country has been receiving more international aid, including deliveries that came through the Aleppo airport. Israel stepped up its airstrikes against Syria’s airports last year and claims it is targeting Iranian weapons shipments.
Israel frames its Syria airstrikes as operations against Iran, but they often kill Syrians and damage civilian infrastructure. The last known Israeli airstrike in Syria hit a residential building in Damascus on February 19, killing at least five people.

This latest unprovoked act of complete and utter cowardice by the Zionist run apartheid state is a new low for humanity.
My conclusion is that this has absolutely nothing to do with Iran but everything to do to make it even harder for desperately needed humanitarian aid to reach the Syrian people already doing it tough as a result unjustified sanctions.
And they claim to be the descendants of holocoast survivors, I doubt it.
It’s as though there is some sort of pathological transference has occurred as a result of WW2 – with first the Palestinians and now the Syrian people being turned into scapegoats for the type of atrocity the Nazis once visited on the followers of Judaism.
Yup… Destroy all secular, stable and relatively well off neighboring countries. That way they can continue to squawk “We are the only stable democracy in the ME!!” while neglecting to mention that they were instrumental in overthrowing all the others
Indeed. Failed states or nothing.
“Destroy all secular, stable and relatively well off neighboring countries” If the neighboring countries would have followed Egypt lead and make peace with Israel things would be different. Egypt is stable relatively well off and fairly democratic.
I think of Egypt as a vassal state serving empire.
Egypt could for example simply open it’s borders with Gaza if only for humanitarian reasons.
Correct again Southern! Egypt is the second largest recipient of Amerikkkan aid, though they receive crumbs compared to the Apartheid State. Nevertheless, they are beholden to the United Snakes and therefore must do the Empire’s bidding.
SOME people here appear to believe that Al-Sisi heads a “Democratic” government, lol.
What puzzles me is that they have to be fully aware that the Zionist fully intend to carve up Egypt in order to realize their selfish and greedy ambitions.
Yes we groveled before the Saudis,and romanticized Lawrence. Europe divied up the Ottaoman empire,not Israel or the US.
Israel didn’t even exist back then while the Zionist ideology did.
In the greater spiel of things Wahhabism and Zionism are rather new.
Have you ever investigated the link between them?
Some good a “democracy” is when the people consistently elect terrorists, eh, Foodoo?
Oh by the way I was speaking of IsraHell, though Amerikkka falls into the same category….
Exactly Pardon me if I state the obvious – remember Nethanyahu proclaiming that 9-11 was very good for Israel with the US responding with these lie based wars of terror.
To me it’s all part of something else from PNAC to the Odid Yenon Plan where the US & allies paved the way by attacking the nations that the Zionist always intended to carve up.
Yes, the “oppressed” have become the “oppressors.”
All Syria has to do is to stop nurturing the Hezbollah menace..
Nurturing, you mean like Nethanyahu visiting wounded member if Deash in Israely hospitals?
Would you like a link with that?
Israel Supports ISIS GR 2015]
Best comment of the day, Southern!
Or week…or month…
Everyone has their moments.
You have a great many of them ! 😁
You’re very kind….thank you.
Nearing the end of this month I’ll be spending a lot more time in remote locations listening to podcast instead of writing comments that expose the hypocrisies of ”empire”.
We’ll miss your insight.
Russia could stop this with one phone call or deliver some S400s. But they won’t. The truth is, Russia does not want an independent Syria either.
Are you saying Russia supports a greater Türkiye and Iran?
The truth is Russia is kinda busy at the moment.
They weren’t that busy before their invasion and weren’t doing a damn thing then either.
Putin knows who rules the world.
The toxic Shrub,Swiss Bankers, and British royalty.
Your implication was quite clear,hackneyed, and obsolete.
Whipping ISIS is something… Why should they take the bait?
You’re either an ally or you aren’t.
I don’t get it either, Wars. Syria has been an ally of Russia for decades.
Perhaps Mr. Putin is just biding his time, as he did with Ukrainazia.
Syria has traded naval basing rights on the Mediterranean to Russia for various forms of support.
That’s not the same thing as being an “ally.”
The US was allied with Britain,but gave modest assistance until Germany declared war on the US in WWII.
It appears that you might not be quite aware that Wall Street bailed out a bankrupt Nazi party back in 1932.
Prior to Germany declaring war on the US, Congress authorized $50.1 billion in Lend-Lease aid, the bulk of it to Britain. In 2023 dollars, that’s a little over a trillion. Hardly “modest.”
And sent over 50 obsolescent destroyers in return for naval bases. It was wiser to let the Brits absorb the casualties than us. Checking on wiki,the total by October 1941 was 1 billion. The 50 billion was from 1941-1945,and included aid to many other countries.Pearl Harbor changed things. The congress had to be carefully guided into lend lease before PearlHarbor.
The total delivered by October 1941 was $1 billion (about $50 billion in 2023 dollars).
The $50 billion was what was authorized earlier in 1941.
And most of the initial billion went to the UK. It wasn’t until December of 1941 that the first Lend-Lease shipment reached the Soviet Union; France had already been conquered by the time Lend-Lease was passed; and China didn’t get any Lend-Lease aid until after Japan attacked the US.
Were they being bombed on a weekly basis by a rouge state?
By rogue state-do you meanNorth Korea,or the never never land?
So Russia is not strong enough to handle Ukraine and help Syria at the same time?
Pardon me for asking – A phone call to whom would that be?
Imo the Russian Federation would appear to appreciate an Independent Syria however they cannot afford to become ”bogged” down there.
Israel could use some lessons in diplomacy, human rights, oh, and self restraint.
“Israel frames its Syria airstrikes as operations against Iran, but they often kill Syrians and damage civilian infrastructure.”
As if making a mockery of international law is acceptable if they were targeting Iran.
Since when has internationa llaw protected Israels or Jewish people.
As if international law ever protected Israelis or Jews.
Uncle Superpower does that. And I guess we could compare how the International community reacts to unprovoked airstrikes by Syria on Israel. Oh wait….
Growing up during the 70’s. when Arab terrorists killed Jews in Israel,the Uncle was silent. Leading up to the 1967 war,Uncle was silent.
You might consider going a lil further back in time and investigate the USS Liberty incident.
Here’s a link…Israeli torpedo boats methodically destroyed all of the Liberty’s liferafts one by one – Read more Milenium Report
And that is relevant in 2023 or to what my comment was about?
Iran should do the same to the secret zionist air strip in Azerbaijan and call it self defence since that is were the Israeli arms reach Azerbaijani army…!
So you want Iran to attack an unused airbase in Azerbaijan.
An eye for an eye only makes the whole world go blind – the only thing we can hope to accomplish here on the web is to expose the truth for all to see.
So it goes.
Whatever happened to Whirled Peas?
Donna, ain’t gonna be no Peas until humanity is vaporized 🙁
Aggression,greed,and libtard idealism killed the illusion. WW1 was supposed to be the war that ended all wars. Chaimberlan promised peace in our times.China has us beaten economy wise, they oppress their own people with organ thefts, yet they are flirting with world destruction over Taiwan. US hippies rightly opposed the Vietnam war,then became greedy businessmen.Democracts tried to give us the evil she demon. US mayors and prosecutors refuse to lock up robbers and beaters, and think that squads of do-gooders will be on call to escort us when we go shopping,keeping away the nasties.When Trump spoke of negotiating with Putin for peace is Syria,both right and left despised him.Iran is a good country-despite the facts.Our only hopes are meditation,prayer, and science fiction.
Israel is going as bonkers as the US is. The violent settlers are killing more Palestinians and the IDF is killing more Palestinians; and the rest of the country is on the verge of civil war. What we’re not being told is that the Hasidim want a Biblical type split in the country, Israel and Judea with Hasidim populating Judea.
And Palestinians are killing plenty of Israelis at the same time or first.
Anything that degrades Hezbollah’s capacity to kill is totally justified and righteous.
