The Syrian air defense system has responded to multiple missiles fired by Israeli jets on the northwestern city of Aleppo, intercepting the majority of them according to Syrian media.

The Israeli regime launched the attacks on Shaykh Najjar industrial city located 10 km northeast of Aleppo at around 11 p.m. local time (2100 GMT) on Wednesday, the official Syrian news agency SANA reported.

SANA quoted a military source as saying that the Syrian air defense has "downed a number of the hostile missiles”.

The Syrian TV said the majority of the missiles had been intercepted by the Arab country’s air defense, and those that hit their targets only caused material damage.

Meanwhile, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claims the airstrikes have targeted an arms depot in Aleppo airport, causing huge explosions.

The attacks have also caused a massive blackout in Aleppo, according to the Syrian TV.

The Israeli regime launches airstrikes on the Syrian territory from time to time. Such aggressive moves are usually viewed as attempts to prop up terrorist groups suffering defeats at the hands of Syrian government forces.

Israel used to be very careful with its operations over Syria after Russia equipped Damascus with the advanced S-300 surface-to-air missiles in October 2018.

However, US President Donald Trump's recent decision to recognize the “Israeli sovereignty” over the Syrian territories of Golan Heights has seemingly emboldened Tel Aviv to launch new aggression on the Arab country.

Trump signed a decree recognizing Israeli “sovereignty” over the occupied Golan at the start of a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington on Monday.

Since then, the US has become the subject of a new round of furor by world countries over Trump’s controversial decision.
