DAMASCUS (Dispatches) – The Zionist regime has carried out an airstrike against a residential area in Syria’s southwestern province of Quneitra.
Syria’s official news agency SANA, citing local sources, reported that the Zionist regime’s helicopter targeted a house in Ain al-Tinah village, which lies west of Hader town, on Monday afternoon, wounding a civilian.
SANA reported at the time that the attack targeted a site close to the town of Jubata al-Khashab, located a few hundred meters from the occupied Golan Heights.
The attack happened less than 24 hours after a similar missile targeted several areas in Syria’s coastal western province of Latakia, in which a civilian was killed and 16 others injured, in addition to causing severe material damage.
Also on Thursday, the Zionist regime carried out air strikes overnight in Quneitra, though there were no reports of casualties.
The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on a network of sources on the ground, said the strikes targeted the Syrian Army’s 90th Brigade and military positions in north Quneitra, near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
The occupying regime, which rarely confirms such strikes, has escalated in recent months its offensives inside Syria.
Syria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Bassam Sabbagh says the regime’s repeated attacks against his country’s territory, sovereignty and independence threaten regional stability as well as international peace and security.
Sabbagh, in two identical letters addressed to the Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres, and rotating President of the UN Security Council Zhang Jun on Thursday, stated that the Zionist regime’s military has committed new attacks against Syrian lands.
Sabbagh said the assaults are in flagrant violation of the international law, the UN Charter, Security Council Resolution 350 (1974) and the 1974 Disengagement of Forces Agreement between the occupying regime and Syria.
