Israel targets Syrian army’s positions near Nayrab airport

In Syria, Israel has carried out a missile strike on the positions of Syrian army near Nayrab airport in the north city of Aleppo.

A source in Syrian air force command told SANA that the strikes were an attempt by Israel to support rebels in southern Syria, where Syrian government forces have been waging an offensive.

Meanwhile, in Syria, a U.S-backed Kurdish militia has completed its withdrawal from the strategic Manbij town, removing a major source of tension between Washington and Ankara.

Turkey considers the People's Protection Units, or YPG, as terrorists but Washington has relied on the group to fight against Daesh in Syria.

An agreement last month between Turkey and the U.S. announced that the militia will leave Manbij.
