i24News released a report detailing alleged air strikes in Syria's Aleppo Wednesday night. Loud explosions were heard near the Aleppo Nayrab Airbase in Syria, according to Syrian media. However, the source of the explosions are unknown at this time.



Early reports suggest that ammunition warehouse were struck, it is unclear at this point if Syrian air defenses were engaged or not.

Syrian state media claimed air defenses were confronting Israeli air strikes and defending targets.

According to the the Syrian Human Rights Center, ten people died and the city of Aleppo in Syria is in chaos due to the "Israeli strike," Maariv initially reported.

The report is in contrast to official Syrian media reports that suggest Syrian air defenses defended the area. 


'The Israeli aggression targeted some positions in Sheikh Najjar industrial zone and a number of enemy missiles were brought down,' a Syrian army statement said.

Separate reports said explosions rocked areas near Aleppo, including an air base and possible storage warehouse linked to Iran.
