Once again, Zionist entity launched attack on Syria

Once again, Zionist entity launched attack on Syria

The Zionist entity of “Israel” has carried out a fresh missile strike on Syria’s northwestern city of Aleppo, causing casualties and material damage.

Syria’s official SANA news agency quoted a military source as saying that the attack took place late Monday with bursts of missiles fired from the direction of southeast of Aleppo.

The source added that the Israeli missiles targeted Aleppo International Airport and a number of locations on the vicinity of the city.

The report said Israel’s new act of aggression killed one Syrian soldier and injured seven others, including two civilians, while causing some material damage.

The attack also put Aleppo International Airport out of service.

Syria’s military noted that the country’s air defenses intercepted Israeli missiles, shooting down most of them.

Israel frequently carries out missile attacks on targets in Syria, mostly using the airspace of Lebanon or the occupied territories.

It usually targets military positions inside the country, especially those of the resistance movement Hezbollah, which played a key role in helping the Syrian army in its fight against foreign-backed terrorists.

The regime launched similar attacks on the Syrian capital Damascus and the central Homs province in early April.

Damascus has repeatedly complained to the UN over Israeli assaults, urging the Security Council to take action against Tel Aviv’s crimes. The calls have, however, fallen on deaf ears.

The country has vowed to give a crushing response to such acts of aggression at some point in the future.

“We warn the Tel Aviv regime that an adequate response to such hostilities awaits them and it will be given sooner or later,” Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said last November.
