Syria files UN complaint over Israeli airstrike, Iran warns of ‘serious consequences’ — RT

Syria has filed an official complaint to the United Nations over an Israeli airstrike on a military research center near Damascus. The move followed a threat from Iran that Israel would face “serious consequences” for the attack.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said Tel Aviv would face repercussions for the Israeli airstrike against a military research center in Jamraya, rural Damascus, the semi-official Fars news quotes him as saying.
Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi condemned what he characterized as “brutal aggression” against Syria.
"There is no doubt that this aggression is part of a Western and Zionist strategy to push aside the success of the Syrian people and government to return to stability and security," Hurriyet Daily News cites him as saying.
Salehi said the strike highlights the "alignment of terrorist groups with the Zionists' objectives."
Syria has summoned the commander of The United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) in the Golan Heights to deliver a former protest for the Israel attack.
