Israeli airstrikes hit Syria’s Aleppo airport early Wednesday for the second time this month as the region is still recovering from a devastating earthquake that hit Syria and Turkey on February 6.
“At about 03:55 am on Wednesday, the Israeli enemy launched an aerial act of aggression with a number of missiles from the direction of the Mediterranean Sea, west of Latakia, targeting the vicinity of Aleppo International Airport,” a Syrian military source told the Syrian news agency SANA.
The source did not report any casualties but said “material damage” had been done. Bassem Mansour, head of Syria’s civil aviation, said the strike put the airport out of service and added that “the airport will resume work within a short period.”
The city of Aleppo was seriously damaged by the earthquake and has been receiving flights carrying vital aid through the airport. The Israeli strikes that hit the airport earlier this month also put it out of service, forcing Syria to reroute aid flights to Damascus and Latakia.
Israel has been bombing Syria for years and began targeting the country’s airports more frequently starting in 2022. Israel rarely comments on individual airstrikes but claims its operations in Syria target Iran’s military presence and arms shipments, but they often kill Syrians and damage civilian infrastructure.

Israel is F-O-S.
Preventing Hezbollah from getting more weapons-very fine indeed.
Supporting our theft of Syrian oil, then preventing aide to the earthquake victims in Syria. Very Democratic of them.
I’d like to see the ME free of any and all weapons of mass destruction.
I would like to see a gigantic free lunch buffet on every street corner. Israel was forced to develop nuclear weapons to increase survival odds.
The money they get from us does provide a free lunch buffet on every corner of Israel. And assassinating a sitting president does wonders for it’s nuclear appetite.
Show pictures of these lunch buffets-I am hungry.
Israel stole its nuclear capability from the US.
Israel is no ally. It is a snake in the grass.
End all US aid to Israel!
Joe, let’s see how much of an “ ally” IsraHell would be if we cut off their welfare checks!
Proof? Ever? Naw, just the standard answer to Israeli terrorism.
Stop funding Israel and there might be peace. The Zionists have become what they hate the most, a carbon copy of the Nazis with all the racist beliefs as the Nazis, just different races. The Cosmic Joker is at work in Tel Aviv.
Sad but true and it is terribly sad…
“The strike put the airport out of service again, cutting off flights that have been delivering earthquake aid.” They don’t call him Satanyahu for nothing, folks. (Sarcasm alert)
There’s nothing like pounding on an enemy that can’t fight back. The US has been doing that for years.
Isn’t it ironic that our taxes are being used to steal other countries resources for the profit of the few? 39 trillion in debt is never enough, is it?
IsraHell bombs….IsraHell bombs….IsraHell bombs…and so on and so on.
Someday, SOMEONE is going to hold the Zionazis accountable for their crimes against humanity and it can’t come soon enough. A big nuke over Tel-a-f*cking-Viv would do it.
Harsh? Not as harsh as the Zionazi regime.
Are Israels close cousins – the Saudi’s – still in charge of a key human rights panel at the UN?
”Ten Saudi Arabian judges ‘face the death penalty after they were deemed too soft on women’s rights activists”
When the ICC the toothless tiger attempted to investigate the IDF for crimes against Humanity they were blocked in every way – needless to say – they investigate themselves and found absolutely nothing wrong.
When has the ICC gone after crimes comited by Syria,Iran or Palestinian terrorists?
The first step is a complaint.
Who has complained to the ICC about “crimes committed by Palestinian terrorists?” Israel, which is not a state party to the ICC?
But in fact, when the state of Palestine (which is a state party to the ICC) complained to the ICC about crimes committed within its claimed territory, the ICC agreed to investigate allegations of crimes by both Israeli occupation troops AND Palestinian Arabs.
And the Israeli regime threw a sh*t-fit about it.
Makes you wonder about nations that are not party to the ICC, doesn’t it Thomas.
Heh…I can think of a few others…oh wait, am I talking about Murka?
I assume you were responding to Jake the Snake, whom I long ago blocked. SOMEONE needs to recognize the fact that the Fourth Geneva Convention legally allows military force against the occupiers by the occupied.
Here’s another yet interesting aspect
“Washington has always vehemently disagreed with this stance”
Exactly. It’s like Washington whining when an American gets arrested in Prague and saying that the Czech Republic’s courts don’t have jurisdiction in the Czech Republic.
The US has no jurisdiction outside it’s own borders and has absolutely no grounds to pursue Julian Assange for publishing details of US committing war crimes or to demand extradition from the UK.
The US gets their own out as was the case with Anne Sacoolas who drove on the wrong side of the UK motorway and killed teenager on a motorbike.
The US is the undisputed world leader when it comes to political hypocrisy’s – Don’t do as we do – More like – Do what we
tellorder you to do….and sign along the dotted line.
The US claims to be exceptional – Accountable to none – However they are following someone’s agenda which ought to invite the question of well whom’s agenda is being pursued and why.
So who benefits?
This one of the reasons why the financiers of war need to be exposed and why the world at large needs a new economic system.
Free Julian Assange !!!!
It’s even worse than a toothless tiger, Southern; at least tigers have claws.
I’d be more inclined to describe it as a bunny rabbit 😉
True they do – However George Bush hasn’t traveled to Europe ever since that arrest warrant was issued, and neither should any nation tolerate the ICC being bullied by the likes of Neocon Bolton – And those are not the only threats that he’s made.
The US created the Nuremberg principles at the ”prodding” of the Soviets which as you know no one abides by least of all doctors under hippocratic oath.
Have a look on the ICC website there’s a detailed list of all cases past and pending – The absolute majority are all third world despots. ICC / Cases
I’m about to get busy and will spend a lot more time listening to podcasts – [I might check in from time to time] – watch out for those 15 minute cities – like going back to the middle ages when people were not able to venture very far.
“Bolton”…oh Southern, you just made me involuntarily expel my dinner 😭
All is forgiven though. Thanks for the link.
BTW, I didn’t see a single white face among them…figures…
Southern…we’ll miss you very much if you don’t check in from time to time…
I put you right up there with Wars, Donna and Renate as my soul brothers and sisters.
