Ten minutes before the shelling | Russian forces mobilized inside International Aleppo Airport due to prior knowledge of the attack

Israeli missiles hit warehouse of Iranian militias in the vicinity of the International Aleppo Airport, and contrary to reports, the airport runway wasn’t damaged.

SOHR activists have reported that the Israeli shelling on the International Aleppo Airport, was targeting an ammunition warehouse for the Iranian militias located in the vicinity of the airport with three missiles. Moreover, a fourth missile hit the airport campus and the runway was not damaged, however the material losses included the Iranian warehouse in the vicinity of the airport.

It is worth noting that Russian forces and regime forces are located inside the International Aleppo Airport, where the Iranian militias are prohibited from using the airport for any military activity, despite the airport being used before to transport “Hajaj Shai’a”, according to reports.

According to reliable SOHR sources, the Russian forces located inside the International Aleppo Airport had prior knowledge of the Israeli airstrikes, as they started mobilizing ten minutes before the airstrikes.

It is worth noting that this attack on the International Aleppo Airport is the first of its kind since March 2019.

Earlier today, SOHR activists reported that four Israeli shells hit a runway of the International Aleppo Airport and warehouses in its vicinity, causing fire and explosions to erupt, likely to be due to the explosion of a batch of Iranian missiles.
