The Times of Israel reports: Israel on Sunday night attacked a military base near Aleppo in northern Syria, the country’s official news agency SANA reported, citing a military source.

SANA said there was only damage to the site, identified as the Al-Nayrab airbase, adjacent to Aleppo’s international airport.

“The Zionist enemy (Israel)… targeted with its missiles one of our military positions north of the Nayrab military airport, but the damage was only material,” SANA said. However, there were unconfirmed reports of casualties at the site.

Al-Nayrab has in the past been linked with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps militia. The base was reportedly previously struck by Israel on April 29 as part of a large raid that also targeted weapons depots near Hama.
