42 killed in Israeli airstrike in Syria

At least 42 people were killed in a military-civilian combination of Israeli airstrikes in Syria’s northern province of Aleppo. Six members of the Lebanese armed group Hezbollah were among the dead.
The Israeli forces carried out the attack early on Friday (March 29).
The Syrian Foreign Ministry said the Israelis carried out drone strikes in addition to airstrikes. The attack initially killed 42 people and injured dozens more. Most of the casualties were civilians. The death toll may rise.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Israeli strikes hit a weapons depot near Aleppo International Airport, triggering a series of explosions. At least 36 Syrian soldiers were killed.
Since the start of the civil war in Syria in 2011, Israel has been conducting frequent airstrikes in the border areas of the country.
However, the Israeli authorities did not comment on the attack in Aleppo.
Since the start of the civil war, some areas in the east, south, and northwest of Syria and the suburbs around the capital Damascus have been controlled by some Iranian-backed armed groups, including Lebanon’s Hezbollah. Israel has been attacking Syria for the past few years, targeting them.
