Damascus complains to UN after Israeli air strike: SANA

Syria's foreign ministry on Thursday lodged an official complaint with the United Nations over what it says was an Israeli air strike on a military research centre near Damascus, a report said.

Although Israel and Syria are technically still at war, the ministry's complaint evoked a 1974 disengagement agreement between the neighbours, state news agency SANA said.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has summoned Iqbal Singha, commander of the UN Observer Disengagement Observer Force... and informed him of an official protest over the Israeli violation of the disengagement agreement of 1974," the ministry said.
