After 8 years of being closed, on February 19th, the Aleppo International Airport received its first flight which came from Damascus.

The long hiatus was imposed due to concerns over the safety and security of passengers due to shelling from militants on the suburbs of Aleppo City.

In a statement to journalists on board the plane, Transport Minister Eng. Ali Hammoud said:

“Putting Aleppo International Airport into service again, and the return of the internal flight, and later the external flights is a significant victory which has been achieved thanks to the scarifies of the heroic Syrian Army and the steadfastness of the Syrian people who stand by their army to liberate Aleppo and the rest of the Syrian Arab territories.”

This was made possible after on the evening of February 16th, the Syrian Arab Army liberated the entire western Aleppo countryside from militants.

On February 17th, the Syrian Transport Ministry announced putting Aleppo International Airport into service again and that it is ready to receive flights, the first of which took place on February 19th. It further announced that there will be timetables for other flights from Aleppo International Airport to Cairo and Damascus in the coming days.

People celebrated the victory in the streets.

Two days later, on February 18th, the Syrian government began work on clearing and restoring the M5 Aleppo-Damascus Highway and to attempt and return a sense of normality to the liberated area.

      The Americunts, Turkeys and Jew bastards are spiteful savages and hate peace or justice.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Great job Syria, Russia and Iran for cleaning up the airport in less than a week and it looks brand spanking new. If the Turkey arseholes are expelled and Syria is allowed to live in peace it can rebuild in a very short time.

    Now all we need is those reptilian vermin the IDF to start camouflaging strikes behind commercial planes.

      They tried it in Damascus recently, by launching from Jordan airspace. In Aleppo they’d find it harder to get the angle right.

    Isn’t it amazing as soon as the US CIA Mossad influence is gone, everything returns to normal happy state, as it was before the US CIA Mossad laid its dirty hands on the region and corrupted everything?

    Hahahahhahaha!Russian and Syrians are smart. This is quite a strategic airport both for civilian and military use…ESPECIALLY MILITARY!!! Damascus is very close to Israeli reach and why every time Iranians and their equipment landed in the Airport in Damascus the Israelis always hid behind passenger planes and attacked it …NUMEROUS TIMES! It had to stop! Smart move Russia/Iran/Syria! Now the Israelis want to bomb Aleppo,they have to go through 2 heavily armed Russian bases Tartus and Latakia and then fire their Cruise or Ballistic missiles over Turkish territory WHICH IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE! Man people do think. Hahahahah! Didn’t even see that one coming.
