The Syrian Foreign Ministry sent two letters to the UN Secretary-General and the Head of the UN Security Council regarding "Israel's" latest attacks against Syria.
The Ministry announced on Wednesday that Damascus reserves the right to retaliate against the attacks using appropriate means guaranteed by international law and the UN charter.
The Foreign Ministry also pointed out the dangerous repercussions of "Israel's" continued violations of the Agreement on Disengagement between "Israel" and Syria, noting that it has now become urgent that the Secretariat-General and Security Council both exercise their authority and condemn these dangerous crimes.
It is noteworthy that the Israeli aggression at dawn today is the tenth during 2022 and the third during the month of April, as it was preceded by a missile attack on Masyaf in the west of Hama in central Syria on April 9, as well as an aggression on the vicinity of Rakhla and Qatana in the southwest of Damascus countryside on April 14.
