Israel has targeted various structures in the war-torn Syrian city of Aleppo. At least 12 people were killed and several others injured in this airstrike.

On Monday, Syrian state-owned media reported the casualties in the Israeli attack.

Syrian state media said Israel carried out airstrikes in Syria for the second time in less than a week. At least 12 people were killed and some injured in this attack which was carried out at around 12:20 pm local time on Sunday.

Syrian military sources said that some infrastructures in various areas of Aleppo were damaged in the attack. However, the source did not give any detailed information on this matter.

According to the Syrian state media, on May 29, Israeli forces carried out airstrikes on the coastal city of Banias as well as Aleppo in the central part of Syria. One child was killed and ten civilians were injured.

Israel has been carrying out airstrikes against Iran-linked targets in Syria for the past few years. Tehran’s influence has grown since it began supporting President Bashar al-Assad in Syria’s civil war that began in 2011.

On April 1, Israel attacked the Iranian consulate in Damascus, the capital of Syria, and killed seven high-ranking military officers, including two generals of the country’s Revolutionary Guards. The Iranian military fired hundreds of missiles and drones at Israel in retaliation for the Israeli attack.

This caused intense excitement throughout the Middle East. Israeli forces have continued to attack Iran-affiliated targets in Syria, despite Iran-Israeli tensions easing after mediation by various parties.
