Israeli occupation launched a new aggression on Syria, with an aerial attack targeting Aleppo International Airport and putting it out of service.
SANA news agency said the attack took place at 02:07 a.m. on Tuesday.
The agency cited a military source as saying the Israeli enemy “carried out an air attack from the direction of the Mediterranean Sea, west of Latakia, targeting Aleppo International Airport”.
The aggression led to material damage at the airport as it went out of service, SANA added.
For almost a decade, the Zionist regime has carried out hundreds of air attacks in Syria, with raids in recent months targeting Syrian airports and air bases.
The city of Aleppo, which suffered widespread destruction in Syria’s foreign-backed war, was again heavily damaged in the deadly 7.8-magnitude earthquake that hit southern Turkey and northwestern Syria last month.
A number of countries have since sent aid shipments via the city’s airport.
Later on Tuesday, the General Civil Aviation Authority of the Syrian Ministry of Transport decided to transfer scheduled flights at Aleppo International Airport to airports of Damascus and Lattakia.
“Following the Israeli aggression that targeted Aleppo International Airport and caused it to be out of service, it was decided to transform the landing of humanitarian relief aid planes for those affected by the earthquake, and the scheduled and programmed flights through Aleppo International Airport to become through the airports of Damascus and Lattakia,” the ministry said in a statement, as cited by SANA.
