On Friday, an Israeli airstrike in Syria’s Aleppo province resulted in the deaths of at least 42 Syrian soldiers. The area targeted also reportedly housed Hezbollah weapons depots, as confirmed by a war monitor.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the Israeli attack was aimed at locations “near rocket depots belonging to Lebanese group Hezbollah.” The strike claimed the lives of 42 individuals, including six from Hezbollah and 36 Syrian soldiers, in the assault targeting a Hezbollah weapons depot.

Additionally, it was reported that the targeted area is in close proximity to Aleppo’s international airport.

Syrian state news agency SANA reported civilian casualties alongside military personnel in the pre-dawn strike. This incident has heightened concerns about Israel’s conflict with Gaza, potentially leading to a broader regional conflict.
