An Israeli air attack has hit Aleppo International Airport in Syria at dawn Wednesday, causing some material damage, in the second strike on the facility this month.

Marking the third attack on Aleppo airport in six months, Israel launched “a number of missiles from the Mediterranean Sea, west of the coastal city of Latakia, at 3:55 am” (00:55 GMT), a military source said in a statement, reported by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

Earlier this month, Syrian state media said that an Israeli air raid on Aleppo’s airport had damaged a runway, which was taken out of service.

The Israeli occupation has been launching repeated air strikes against various locations in Syria in recent years. The raids killed a number of Syrian civilians and military personnel, and caused damage to facilities.
