Syrian state media reported that Israeli airstrikes on Thursday hit the worldwide airports of the Syrian capital Damascus and the northern metropolis of Aleppo, damaging their runways and placing them out of service.

State information company SANA quoted an unnamed navy official as saying that nobody was damage within the assaults.

The Israeli navy declined to remark.

They might be the primary Israeli strikes on Syria because the militant Palestinian group Hamas carried out its lethal assaults in southern Israel.

The airstrikes got here a day earlier than Iran’s overseas minister was scheduled to go to Syria to satisfy officers over the risky state of affairs within the area.

Israel has focused airports and sea ports within the government-held components of Syria in an obvious try to forestall arms shipments from Iran to militant teams backed by Tehran, together with Lebanon’s Hezbollah. Hundreds of Iran-backed fighters from across the area joined Syria’s 12-year battle serving to tip the stability in favour of President Bashar Assad’s forces.

Israel has carried out tons of of strikes on targets inside government-controlled components of Syria in recent times, together with assaults on the Damascus and Aleppo airports, however not often acknowledges or discusses the operations.
