Iran has denounced Israel’s airstrikes on the Syrian city of Aleppo, saying the attack is a failed attempt to heal the regime’s humiliated image in the the besieged Gaza Strip.

“These attacks are a clear violation of international laws and regulations and Syria's sovereignty and territorial integrity and a serious threat to regional and international peace and security," Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kan'ani said on Friday.

“It is necessary for the international community and the United Nations Security Council to take preventive measures and hold the aggressor Zionist regime accountable in addition to condemning such assaults,” he added.

A number of Syrian civilians and military personnel were killed and injured in an Israeli aerial assault that targeted several areas in Aleppo countryside earlier in the day.

Syria’s official news agency SANA said the Israeli aggression coincided with airstrikes by foreign-backed Takfiri terrorist groups from the neighboring province of Idlib on the same area.
