Syria war monitor says seven killed in alleged Israeli strike on Aleppo

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says seven people were killed in an alleged Israeli attack on Aleppo’s international airport late Monday.

The dead include four Syrian army officers and “three pro-Iran foreign fighters,” according to the Britain-based monitor, which relies on a vast network of sources on the ground.

Syrian state-run media reported that one soldier was killed, five more were wounded, and two civilians were injured.

The observatory says the strikes “completely destroyed” a munitions depot in the Nayrab airfield area.

Israeli missiles also slammed into Syrian air force factories in the Safireh area of Aleppo province, “causing extensive material damage,” it said, adding that the sites were used by pro-Iran fighters.

The pro-opposition monitor has been accused of inflating casualty counts in the past.
