Syria and Iran condemn an alleged Israeli airstrike on the Aleppo airport, saying it cut off aid to earthquake victims.

Syria’s foreign ministry decries a “double crime,” saying the strike targeted “a civilian airport… and one of the key channels for the arrival of humanitarian aid” for quake victims.

Damascus ally Iran condemned the strike, calling it a “crime against humanity.”

“While the Syrian earthquake victims in Aleppo are experiencing difficult conditions, the Zionist regime (Israel) is attacking Aleppo airport,” foreign ministry spokesman Nasser Kanani says in a statement.

Israel has reportedly attacked Aleppo airport several times in recent years, with a strike last September putting it out of service for a few days.

While Israel does not comment on specific strikes it has said that it hits targets bases of Iran-allied terror groups, such as Lebanon’s Hezbollah, and efforts to ship advanced weapons to the terror groups.

There has been speculation that Iran was sending weapons amid its aid shipments to Syria.
