Syria sends UN complaints over Israeli, US-led airstrikes

AP , Friday 30 Nov 2018

Syria has sent the UN Security Council complaints over the latest Israeli airstrikes that targeted an area home to military bases south of Damascus, saying such ``aggression'' aims to prolong the Syrian crisis.

Syria's Foreign Ministry said Friday the complaints also referred to strikes against Islamic State gighters in Syria by the US-led coalition that claimed civilian lives.

The coalition offensive, which began in September, aims to drive the IS group from their last pocket along the Syrian-Iraqi border.

Syrian state media reported the Israeli strikes on Kisweh, south of Damascus, late Thursday. Israel hasn't commented.

They were the first reported Israeli strikes inside Syria since September, and after Russia delivered S-300 air defense systems to Damascus last month.
