The Syrian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday urged the United Nations Security Council to take firm and immediate measures to stop Israeli aggression on Syria, according to the state news agency SANA.

In a statement, the ministry said the Israeli attacks are the result of the “unlimited” support by the United States and some UN Security Council members.

The ministry said the Syrian government condemns the attack that was carried out by Israel on Syrian military bases at dawn on Wednesday.

“Syria again demands the UN Security Council to shoulder its responsibility in the framework of the UN Charter and most importantly the preserving international peace and security,” the statement read.

Earlier on Wednesday, one soldier was killed and three others were wounded by a fresh Israeli missile attack against a military base in the western countryside of the capital Damascus.

The missile attack was carried out from outside the Syrian airspace at dawn and targeted an air defense unit in the Zabadani suburb west of Damascus, SANA said. The Syrian air defenses intercepted some of the missiles, it added.
