(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Syria said that Israel had targeted sites inside the Syrian land on Sunday and Monday, killing four and wounding nine others.
In two identical letters sent to the United Nations Secretary General and Chairman of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said the Israeli forces launched tank shells, mortars and two rockets, adding that five Israeli warplanes hit positions of the law-enforcement forces inside Syria.
The Israeli attack against sites inside the Syrian land comes in the context of its continued support to armed terrorist groups in the disengagement zone, said the letters, according to Syrian arab news agency (SANA).
The letters added that the Israeli air attacks happened around the time of another attack by an armed terrorist group against sites of the law-enforcement forces that was aborted."The new Israeli attack happened in full view of the Undersecretary General of the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, Herve Ladsous, who is visiting Syria to inspect the status of the UN peace-keeping force in Syria," they pointed out.
The ministry saw the attack as a violation of the Separation of Forces agreement that has been in place since 1974, the UN Charter and the international law.
An agreement between Syria and Israel was achieved in May 1974 that stipulated the disengagement and separation of Israeli and Syrian military forces on Golan and the creation of disengagement zones between the opposing armies.
"Syria demands that the UNSC assume its responsibilities and enforce its deterrent resolutions to prevent Israel from going farther in its incessant attempts to inflame the situation and jeopardize regional and international security and peace," read the letters.
