Syrian air defense repelled an Israeli attack near the city of Aleppo in northern Syria on Monday night.

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the air defense of Al-Safira was activated due to missile firing from Israeli forces.

Social media users report that some of the Israeli missiles had struck targets, but nothing has been officially confirmed yet. Israel has also not made any official comment.

The Syrian Ministry of Defense on a Twitter post stated that “At approximately 23.37 pm on Monday 7/19, the Israeli enemy carried out an air aggression towards southeast Aleppo, targeting some points in the Al-Safira area.”

​Israel has launched attacks against al-Safira before, targeting Iran’s Quds Force, an elite unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which is said to be plotting attacks against Israel.
