TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Israel launched missiles on a Syrian military base in the Arab country's northern province of Aleppo.

"The Zionist enemy … targets one of our military sites north of Nairab airport, causing only material damage," SANA news agency quoted a military source as saying on Sunday.

The latest attack was an attempt by the Tel Aviv regime to support militants who still remain in southern Syria, it added.

Israel has struck locations in Syria many times in the course of the foreign-backed conflict, targeting both military bases and residential areas. 

Israel is widely believed to have been providing weapons to anti-Damascus militants as well as medical treatment to Takfiri elements wounded in Syria inside the occupied Golan Heights.
