Syria accuses Israel of state terrorism

DAMASCUS (Syria):  Syria has accused Israel of committing ‘state terrorism’ after 15 people including children were killed in Israeli air strikes.

“Israeli authorities are increasingly practising state terrorism,” the foreign ministry said on Tuesday in a statement carried by the official SANA news agency.

The statement said that the latest heinous Israeli aggression falls within the framework of ongoing Israeli attempts to prolong the crisis in Syria.

Israeli air strikes near Damascus and in Homs province late on Sunday killed nine mostly foreign pro-government fighters and six civilians, including three children, Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman declined to comment.

SANA said that Syria’s foreign ministry filed a complaint to the United Nations Security Council over the attack. Israel’s “dangerous and hostile” actions would not have been possible without the support of its ally the United States, which protects it in the Security Council, it said.

The air strikes hit several Iranian positions near Damascus, and also targeted a research centre and a military airport west of the city of Homs where the Lebanese Shia movement Hezbollah and Iranians are deployed, the Syrian Observatory said.

One of the pro-government fighters killed was Syrian, while the rest were of other nationalities, its chief Rami Abdurrahman said.
