SOHR: Syria says Aleppo airport returns to service after Israeli strikes
US forces establish 3d base in Syria's Hasakah
The Syrian transport ministry said on Saturday that the international airport of Aleppo city in northern Syria has returned to service after a recent Israeli airstrike.
The reparation process is still going on at the Aleppo airport but the safety of landing and takeoff has been put in place, said a ministry statement.
On Wednesday, an Israeli missile attack targeted the airport, causing damage to parts of its runway. The airport of the capital Damascus was also hit on the same day but the attack didn’t cause a halt in flights.
In June, an Israeli missile strike made the Damascus airport out of service for two weeks.
The US forces established a third military base in Syria’s northeastern province of Hasakah on Saturday, a war monitor reported.
The new military base was set up in the village of Naqara, 3 km southwest of the city of Qamishli in Hasakah province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
All the three US bases in Hasakah were located in areas controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, the Britain-based watchdog added.
The US forces have established multiple military bases in Syria since entering the war-torn country in 2014, with its largest one in the al-Omar oil field in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour.
The Syrian government has repeatedly urged the withdrawal of the US forces from the country, referring to them as occupation forces that entered Syria without its consent.
