MOSCOW, May 5 (RIA Novosti) – Iran condemned on Sunday the recent Israeli airstrikes on Syria and urged regional countries to resist such acts of ‘aggression,’ Fars news agency reported, referring to Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast.
Syria’s official news agency SANA has reported Israel carried out early on Sunday a missile attack on a military research center outside the Syrian capital, Damascus.
Syrian state television has broadcast video footage showing a series of large explosions around the Jamraya research center, which is located about 15 kilometers (10 miles) from the Lebanese border.
The airstrike occurred just a day after an Israeli official said Israel had carried out an airstrike targeting a consignment of missiles in Syria allegedly intended for the Lebanese Hezbollah militia. The Jamraya facility hit on Sunday was also the target of an Israeli airstrike in January.
