An Israeli airstrike on Syria’s Aleppo International Airport damaged its runway and took the airport out of service, Syrian state news agency SANA reported early on Tuesday, citing a military source.

Syrian air defenses intercepted missiles launched from the Mediterranean Sea, west of the coastal city of Latakia, at 2:07 a.m. local time, SANA added.

It was not immediately clear if there were any casualties. There was no comment from Israeli officials.

Last year, Israel intensified strikes on Syrian airports to disrupt Tehran’s increasing use of aerial supply lines to deliver arms to allies in Syria and Lebanon, including Hezbollah.

On Feb. 19, Israeli airstrikes targeted residential areas in Syria’s capital, Damascus, killing at least five people and wounding 15, according to Syrian state news.

On Jan. 2, the Syrian army said Israel’s military fired missiles toward the capital’s international airport, putting it out of service and killing two soldiers.
