DAMASCUS (Xinhua) – Two civilians were wounded at dawn Saturday by a Zionist strike targeting areas in the northwestern province of Tartous, a military statement said.
The Zionists carried out their attack from the Mediterranean west of the Lebanese city of Tripoli, targeting poultry farms in the vicinity of Hamidiya town, south of Tartous, the statement read.
The attack caused material damage too, it added.
The attack is the latest in a series of military strikes by the occupying regime on Syrian sites.
The Syrian government has repeatedly condemned the attacks, accusing the Zionist regime of supporting terrorist-designated groups in Syria.
Last May, Syria urged the United Nations and the Security Council to issue a “clear” condemnation of the Israeli regime’s recurrent airstrikes on the Arab country’s territory.
In a letter to the UN secretary-general and the president of the Security Council, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said the country hoped the two bodies would “adopt a clear position on the Israeli attacks on Syrian sovereignty”.
Such unequivocal position, the letter added, should be “away from politicized considerations and calculations that contradict the well-established and clear legal and political positions of the United Nations and its bodies.”
The ministry also urged the UN to demand that the Zionist aggressor abide by the relevant Security Council resolutions and to immediately and unconditionally stop threatening regional and international peace and security.
Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The Syrian government says the Israeli regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding terrorist groups that are wreaking havoc in the country.
The occupying regime frequently targets military positions inside Syria, especially those of the resistance movement Hezbollah which has played a key role in helping the Syrian army in its fight against the foreign-backed terrorists.
The Tel Aviv regime mostly keeps quiet about its attacks on Syrian territories which many view as knee-jerk reaction to Syrian government’s increasing success in confronting terrorism.
