On Monday night, the Syrian air defense thwarted an attack in the sky over Aleppo, Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported. The Syrian MoD later confirmed the attack, adding that it targeted "some points in the Al-Safira area".
Israel has recently increased its attacks on pro-Iranian militants reportedly operating in Syria whom it sees as threatening the Jewish state, targeting their infrastructure and clandestine facilities allegedly used to manufacture precision missiles.
