Syria has appealed to the United Nations in outrage over alleged attacks by the Israel Defense Forces against targets near Damascus on Sunday afternoon.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying it “requires sanctions to deter Israel,” according to a report broadcast on Israel’s Channel 2 television news.

Israel has neither confirmed nor denied reports of the attacks.

Syria alleged the Israeli Air Force bombed targets in and around the Dimas air base and the Damascus international airport, including a warehouse in which advanced Russian-made S-300 missiles were being prepared for transport to bases in Lebanon belonging to the Hezbollah terrorist organization.

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov met early Sunday in Beirut with Hezbollah secretary general Hassan Nasrallah at the end of a two-day visit to Lebanon before heading to Turkey. The two men “discussed political developments in the region,” according to the Lebanon Daily Star newspaper, “with particular focus on Lebanon and Syria.”

Hezbollah has provided strong military support for government troops defending Russia’s ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad since the start of the three-year Syrian civil war.

  1. Israel does what is necessary to defend itself from Hezbollah and the UN is outraged.
    Syria murders 300,000 of it own citizens. Where is the UN outrage there?
    Why no righteous indignation when Israeli citizens are attacked by Palestinian terrorists in their own land?
    The UN is the anti-Israel face of a world that worships a lifeless idol..
    The coalition of Psalm 83 is getting ready to meet Israel's Messiah.
    Those of us waiting patiently for that day will daily pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

  2. Syria has no other problems aka isis and the revolution so to deflect, they focus on Israel which ahs no relvency to their lives at the UN or anywhere. The more Syria delays, the more Syrians die and their people are mislead to believe that their families are going to have sex with 72 virgins. As AHmed the terrorst says, once dead and your penis is blown away, not much for a sexual experience. What do the women get in heaven? Nothing because arabs don't go to heavan.

  3. Unfortunately the UN is run by anti-peace anti-civility and anti-Semitism and most of them are run by Arabs and of course Obama who is the president of America.. Wait: I forgot he is a terrorist and an Arab at the same time piece of that’s what Obama is

  4. South Africa today is a country worse off than 1994. A country where whites are being murdered daily by blacks. Rolling electric black outs , infrastructure that is crumbling and no law and order. Multi culturesm has not worked anywhere in the world so self determination is becoming more of an option. Long live Israel.

  5. How can Syria seriously complain, considering the nature of the cargo. But, bear in mind that there is only a cease-fire between Israel and Syria. That means that war has not finished. So, Syria is still the enemy. If they are taking any sort of action that might harm Israel, then Israel has the right to protect itself, anywhere it can.
