Putting one of them out of service | Israeli aircraft launches airstrikes on Aleppo International and Al-Nayrab military airports

In the early hours of today, Israeli aircraft launched airstrikes targeting the runway of Aleppo International Airport, which caused the airport to be completely out of service. The Israeli strikes also targeted, with two missiles, weapons warehouses at the Nayrab military airport, which witnessed during the last period the movement of helicopters towards the Syrian desert. No information about causalities was reported, while the air defence attempted to respond the Israeli strikes, but they failed and the Israeli missiles reached their targets.
SOHR documented 26 attacks in 2023: 19 airstrikes and seven rocket attacks by ground forces, during which Israel targeted several positions in Syria, destroying nearly 61 targets, including buildings, weapons and ammunitions warehouses, headquarters, centres and vehicles. These strikes killed 61 combatants and injured 69 others. The fatalities are distributed as follows:
• 24 members of regime forces, including two officers.
• 24 Iranian-backed non-Syrian militiamen.
• Six members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
• Four Iranian-backed Syrian militiamen.
• Three members of the Lebanese Hezbollah.
In addition, those attacks left a man and a woman dead and other civilians injured.
The attacks are distributed regionally as follows:
• Damascus and Rif Dimashq: 12 attacks.
• Al-Quneitera: six attack.
• Hama: one attack.
• Tartus: two attack.
• Aleppo: three attacks.
• Al-Suwaidaa: three attacks.
• Daraa: two attacks.
• Homs: three attack.
SOHR would like to point out that Israel sometimes targeted more than one province in a single attack.
