9 Syrian soldiers killed in alleged Israeli strike near Aleppo
Israel struck a military position near an airport on the outskirts of Aleppo Sunday night, killing 9 Syrian soldiers, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported Monday.
Six of those killed in the attack held Syrian citizenship. There is no information regarding the other 3 soldiers killed, the war monitor reported.
According to Arab reports, at least 10 missiles struck a military site belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in the vicinity of Nayrab military airport, east of the Syrian city of Aleppo.
The war monitor said the attack targeted warehouses where weapons belonging to the Syrian army as well as to Iranian militias were kept.
The IDF has neither confirmed nor denied the reports.
Wednesday night, the IDF targeted three military posts in Syria in response to the infiltration of the Syrian UAV into Israel that was intercepted by the IDF earlier.
