One of the targets of the July 19 Israeli strikes on Syria was a compound located in the eastern countryside of Aleppo.

On July 21, the Aurora Intel Twitter account shared new satellite images showing heavy damage at the compound that’s located a few kilometers to the east of Aleppo International Airport. The exact nature of the compound is yet to be revealed.

According to the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria, the strikes were carried out by four F-16 fighter jets of the Israeli Air Force. The fighter jets penetrated Syria’s airspace over al-Tanf, which is occupied by US forces.

From there, the Israeli fighter jets launched eight munitions. Seven of the munitions were intercepted by Pantsir-S and Buk-M2 systems of the Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces.

The main target of the strikes was reportedly the al-Safirah defense factories in the southern Aleppo countryside. The complex, where Syria stored some of its chemical weapons before the 2013 deal, is now developing and producing conventional weapons and ammunition for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Syrian sources revealed that the last Israeli strikes claimed the lives of a SAA service member and two pro-government fighters.

Israel has been waging a military campaign on Syria in an attempt to prevent what it calls “Iranian entrenchment” for nearly ten years now. Nothing has been achieved, so far.
