Syria files official complaint about Israeli air strike

The Syrian Foreign Ministry summoned the chief of the UN Disengagement Observer Force and filed an official complaint about an Israeli air strike.



Damascus: The Syrian Foreign Ministry on Thursday summoned the chief of the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) and filed an official complaint about an Israeli air strike that targeted a military research centre in the capital, Xinhua reported.

In a statement carried by state media, the ministry informed Major General Iqbal Singh Singha that Israel had violated the charter of disengagement concluded in 1974 by penetrating the Syrian airspace.

Israeli jets carried out an air strike on Wednesday that hit a military research site in Jumraya suburb of Damascus.

Western officials speculated that the air strike targeted a convoy carrying anti-aircraft weaponry from Syria to Lebanon`s Hezbollah.

A Syrian military statement said the Israeli attack came after many unsuccessful attempts by "armed terrorist groups" to capture the site over the past months.
